boring and plot less, some OK gore towards the end
26 November 2004 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

I made several abortive attempts to start watching this movie, but it was so boring that I kept giving up. I just made it all the way through, and I have to say I thought it was a waste of time.

A group in Japan has a leader in jail. A woman in the group has sex with some of the members. They noisily eat some noodles. They go into the woods and kill a few of their members. They laugh annoyingly. They go to an abandoned building and the remaining members kill each other. The end.

There's simply not much that happens in this movie. The group's purpose was never really explained, nor do they ever do anything. None of the characters have any characterization. The end credits were not subtitled in the version I saw; perhaps there was some explanatory text mixed in? There were also some handpainted signs in the beginning of the movie that no translation was given for; perhaps it would have helped to know what they said.

There are scenes with gore starting about an hour into the movie, but if that's all you're looking for, then you're better off watching another movie. If you must watch this one, I'd advise generous usage of the fast-forward button.
