Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Ryuhei Kitamura's Alive, based on a highly popular Japanese series of comic books, begins when convicted killer Tenshu, who murdered the people responsible for raping his girlfriend, survives his trip to the electric chair. Officials give him two choices -- either he takes another trip to the chair or he becomes a guinea pig for an experiment where he must battle aliens. He assumes that any fate is better than the electric chair, but he soon realizes how difficult his new existence will be.
