Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis (1988)

Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis is a Japanese live-action science fiction movie directed by Akio Jissoji and based on a 1971 literary epic by Hiroshi Aramata with character design by H.R. Geiger. It was released by Toho in Japan on January 30, 1988.

In the movie, a demonic psychic named Kato uses his powers in an attempt to resurrect an ancient evil soul which has haunted Tokyo for over 1,000 years in an attempt to rain destruction down upon the city.

The soul belongs to a man named Masakado who was executed for his crimes against humanity, and it’s up to his pure-hearted descendent Keiko to top Kato before the ritual is completed.
