When it comes to sadistic horror (aka "torture porn"), many will point to either Saw or Hostel as being the innovators of this subgenre. However, it seems as though most people forget that Japan has been pumping these sort of movies out for years, and today, I'm going to take a look at one of the more infamous titles dealing with this subject matter. Be warned that this film is a mixture of explicit, hardcore pornography and graphic violence that makes both of the aforementioned films look like Disney productions, so proceed at your own risk.

I do have to make a confession about this film before I get down to writing the synopsis: the dialogue is in Japanese and there are no English subtitles available, so I didn't understand any of the script aside from brief snippets of the introduction and a discussion about cookies. However, I'm confident in saying that I don't think I missed a whole lot due to my lack of Japanese language skills, as blood-soaked cum shots and stomach-fucking are part of a universal language.

It begins with three guys - Kikurin, Tamakichi Anaru, and Yuuji Kitano - picking up a lady (Kanako Ooba) for a porn shoot, and they waste no time in getting down to business. For twenty minutes, the movie is just like something you'd pick up from the back room of your local adult video store: oral sex and the military position are the order of the day here, and although it's pixelated, it leaves little to the imagination. Then, the guys decide that they want to spice things up a bit by tying her up, sticking a pink dildo up her ass, dripping hot candle wax on her body, and whipping her. She's not too happy about any of this, but she allows them to continue until they decide to give her an enema. At this point, she draws the line and the shoot is over.

As she's putting on her clothes and preparing to leave, the director hits her over the head with a baseball bat, knocking her out so that he can tie her up. For the next half hour (give or take), the three men mutilate and torture this woman in scenes which will surely make even the most hardcore of horror fans nauseous: by the end of "round two", she'll have lost both legs and one arm, had her tongue shredded courtesy of a potato peeler and a pair of scissors, and she'll also have had her intestines fucked. Did I mention that this is some brutal stuff?

Honestly, how does one go about reviewing a title like this? By this point in the review, readers will have either left the page in disgust or started searching for a copy of their own. What I will say is that if the above sounded like something you'd be interested in, you certainly won't be disappointed with this offering: there is some extremely violent shit in here, and save for one or two of the effects, it all looks very realistic (almost a little too realistic in spots). There's no deep storyline here and there are no surprise endings (it concludes with the woman being "reduced to a 'Tumbling Doll of Flesh'"... in other words, it wraps up after they sink a machete into her face), but if you're in the market for a half hour of some of the sickest material ever committed to film, this should be near the top of your "to see" list.

Personally, I enjoy this kind of stuff, but it's certainly not for everyone. I'm going with a final rating of 9/10, but this is one of those films where you can accurately rate it without having seen it based solely on your opinion of the material at hand.

The guy I ordered this from didn't even have the decency to put a label on the DVD, or at least write on it, what it was. It also came with 30 minutes of great, cheesy movie trailers, which were pretty entertaining in themselves. I really liked this movie, but I wish there'd been a little more gore, and a little less pixelation. Especially in the gut-fucking scene. At least the blood soaked cum made it through. 8/10

Welcome to the world of bootleg DVDs. Funny enough, you must have bought it from the same guy I did - mine came with the same set of trailers.
