"Renzoku Boko" aka "Serial Rape" is a nasty and stylish pink rape film that is forgotten and extremely hard to find.Ren Osugi plays raping cinema projectionist with an unhealthy fixation on the female writer of pinku eiga shown in the cinema.The film offers some particularly vicious rape sequences-the opening scene of sexual assault in the woods is stunning.There is also truly erotic lesbian sequence between two Japanese beauties.The climax,which takes place in the empty room filled with mannequins,is gloriously brutal and unforgettable.The acting is convincing and the film is well-shot and lit.It's amazing that with so little resources Japanese film-makers can make such grim and nasty cinema."Serial Rape" runs only 60 minutes,but is never boring.Check it out,if you can find it.

Mean-spirited, stylish, obscure violent pinker

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A cinema projectionist (Ren Ohsugi) becomes obsessed with the female writer of a rape-themed film.

The writer witnessed (shown in flashback) a rape by a tattooed man when she was just a moppet.

From this simple premise erupts a nasty, erotic, tightly directed "abuse" flick from reliable director Yojiro Takita.

This has something for everyone and is beautifully shot and lit. The surreal opening sequence of a rapist chasing a schoolgirl through a tunnel establishes the grim, almost industrial tone. There is much (white) panty fondling during the attack sequences and the level of viciousness is refreshingly high.

A gentle lesbian seduction in a bathroom is volcanic for what it suggests, as is the extended, off-the-meter lesbian tryst that follows. Actress Kaoru Orimoto, who plays the pink film scriptwriter and target of Ohsugi's obsession, is incredibly hot and has the body and face of a goddess.

There are many reasons to hunt RENZOKU BOKO (SERIAL RAPE aka THE RAPES) down. A fog-filled sequence in a forest where our "hero" disposes of a beautiful dead body is gorgeously shot and directed. Another highlight is a rape sequence that takes place in a front of a giant movie screen where a similar act of transgression is being shown.

Takita pushes his own boundaries towards the film's climax when he has Ohsugi burning a woman's crotch with his lighter moments before she blinds him and watches him plummet to his well-deserved death.

Ohsugi as the twisted miscreant projectionist is entirely convincing.

Not for the knee-jerk crowd, but certainly a prize find for the true believers.
