Goofs

While the demon has the nurse in his possession he soon shoves both her hands into the wall of the hospital room they are in. This is practically impossible as the wall was lined with thick tile resting over an even thicker amount of drywall, meaning that her hands would not have penetrate the wall in the slightest.

Tentacles, anyone?
27 June 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Now, this anime is not for people who like anime such as Sailor Moon, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and other harmless films/series. As it states on the cover, this anime is "absolutely not for children". The first time I saw Urotsukidoji: Legend Of The Overfiend I was not prepared to see the mix of tentacles and schoolgirls. I was pretty shocked, and turned it off after the opening sequence. But curiosity lured me back, and I watched the film after figuring, 'hell, it's only a cartoon'. What I saw was like no other anime I had seen before. OK, there's plenty of tentacles to be seen in this film, but plot-wise it's a pretty good horror anime (with lots of nudity and sexual situations). This anime is well worth a watch to the more mature anime viewer.
