There are some things worse than death.
From Director Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, Godzilla Final Wars, Aragami Deul, Down To Hell, The Messenger, And Azumi).
Based on the popular manga by Tsutomu Takahashi (Sky High). Alive combines the tension of Vincenzo Natali's Cube and Kitamura's own Versus.
For the brutal vengeance murder of his girlfriend's rapists, Tenshu is sentenced to die in the electric chair.
Resigned to his fate and unmoved by his actions, he survives the lethal high voltage punishment. He is then given the choice to burn again, or take part in a vicious experiment pitting him against another prisoner and a mysterious alien life force. Here is where the true punishment begins.
Featuring moving performances by Hideo Sakaki, Ryo, Koyuki, Erika Oda, Jun Kunimura, Bengal, Tetta Sugimoto, and Tak Sakaguchi.
