Guinea Pig 4: Mermaid in a Manhole

Anyone with the audaciousness to peruse the Guinea Pig franchise will probably know what to expect by part four, a scarce plot with the intention of showing off twisted gore and sadism to disgust and repulse anyone watching. Mermaid in a Manhole (Ginî piggu: Manhôru no naka no ningyo) follows in the footsteps of He Never Dies by delivering a fantas...

Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame

The fifth of the Guinea Pig movies to hit the small and dirty screen is Android of Notre Dame, Kazuhito Kuramoto's attempt to recapture the serious tone of the more controversial episodes using innocents as the objects of experiments while maintaining the fantasy element introduced after Flower of Flesh and Blood. But devoid of the absurd over-humo... Click to read more "Guinea Pig 5: Android of Notre Dame (Nôtoru Damu no andoroido)"

Guinea Pig 6: Devil Doctor Woman

Guinea Pig 6: Devil Doctor Woman (Ginî piggu 6: Pîtâ no akuma no joi-san) is by far the most asinine entry in the Guinea Pig franchise and a prime example of how a basic premise can be mutated beyond all recognition once the notoriety of a snuff and gore series runs out of creative ways to provide an hours worth of torture for their sick fan base. ...

The Happiness of the Katakuris - The hills are alive with the sound of screaming

It is a widely little known fact that, despite his reputation for cartoonishly character filled, violent and perverted movies, Takashi Miike is also a creator of children's films and a creator of period movies (as in the corset-cleavage filled movies set in a period of time... not the kind downloadable from Germany). It is a narrower full-size fact... Click to read more "The Happiness of the Katakuris (Katakuri-ke no kôfuku)"

Horny House of Horror - Fashion Hell

Just when the market for crazy Japanese splatter was about to become saturated beyond the help of even the most absorbent kitchen towels, Jun Tsugita added some unique originality to the sub-genre with the highly peculiar Horny House of Horror AKA Fashion Hell (Fasshon heru). Usually Tsugita stays away from the directorial role and is involved in t... Click to read more "Horny House of Horror (Fasshon heru)"

Ichi the Killer (Koroshiya 1) (2001)

Excessive violence from Takashi Miike.

Ichi the Killer - Excessive Violence from Takashi Miike

Ichi the Killer (Koroshiya 1) is a tremendously violent, tremendously twisted and slightly confusing Yakuza movie with the perverse and bizarre storyline that we have come to expect of Takashi Miike. The gore is excessive, the violence is brutal and there is a plethora of peculiar, complex, drug-fuelled characters, once again typical of this legend...
