Weird concoction of rituals, religions & customs...
20 January 2003 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 1/20/2003 - 2 out of 10(Dir-Gianni Proia): Weird concoction of rituals, religions & customs held in many different parts of the world that I believe is intended to shock you. This it does, but I couldn't figure out the connections or the reason for the Italian filmmaker to make something like this. There is a variety of strange human rituals including women in Las Vegas gauking over muscle-bound men to women performing castration by teeth on reindeer in the northern Icelands and then getting married to men who choose them after this is done. I could go on and on but it's not really needed. If your idea of a good time is watching naked Japanese men trouncing each other for the sake of a possible good year according to their priests or seeing chicken-blood being spattered on a naked woman as part of a satatic ritual then by all means watch this movie. For others who just want entertained and not disgusted, stay away from this.
