Junk (JUNK 死霊狩り Junk Shiryōgari?) is a Japanese Yakuza Zombie movie directed by Atsushi Muroga. Shot in 1999 and produced by Japan Home Video, it is essentially a remake of a Japanese mafia movie called "Score" also directed by Muroga, but this time with zombies getting in the way of being paid for the heist. The movie pays homage to Re-Animator, Reservoir Dogs (just as "Score" did), and the original Dawn of the Dead. It stars Kaori Shimamura, Yuji Kisimoto, Nobuyuki Asano, Tate Gouta, and Osamu Ebara. It is released in North America by Unearthed Films.
