A woman walking home late at night is attacked by an unknown assailant who knocks her out with chloroform. When she regains consciousness, she finds herself tied to a bed in a blood- spattered dungeon, at the mercy of a white-faced man in a samurai helmet who wants to turn her into a "flower of blood and flesh." He then proceeds to slowly dismember and disembowel her as the camera records it all. Written by

The film gained some notoriety in 1991 when actor Charlie Sheen viewed it and came to believe that it was an illegal snuff film. He contacted the FBI with his complaint and an investigation ensued, but the movie was eventually proven to be merely a very realistic (yet completely fictional) horror film, and not a document of an actual murder.

Although still very hard to find on video, this is absolutely the top of sadistic Japanese gore. The dismemberment of a naked Japanese girl strapped to a bed, filmed in intense close-ups and decorated with subtle sound effects, is one of the best examples of how gory horror movies should be made. In my eyes "Flowers of flesh and blood" has definitely set some new visual standards for the industry... And it even manages to eroticise the act of mutilation! This is absolutely unique and will perhaps shock the less hardened viewers among us. However, I found it quite the experience.
But be warned: you will have to be a little sick in the mind to fully appreciate its content.
