Brutal & Brilliant, 9 November 2009
Author: werewolfgal13 from Canada

This is one sick little film, and on the point of gore it certainly does the trick but, if you're just watching for violence skip the first hour and you'll be happier; however if you want a film that has something to say with fantastic satirical overtones, the constant Japanese struggle between accepting western ideals and tradition, and interesting ideas about power watch it through. At the midpoint of this film it kind of takes on a last house on the left feel when they're out in the woods and that's when the visceral gore starts flying. Makes Buddy G.'s Shock Treatment look like Barney and is impressively shot for a student film with some interesting camera work. This mayn't be the film for everyone (I'm a hardened gore-hound and I squirmed) but if any of these previous things appeal to you definitely put this gem on your to watch list.
