Storyline

If your wife is seeing Dr Shinichi Toya, be worried ! This medico specializes in assisting women in removing both their husbands and their clothing. Every woman, except the wife he is currently divorcing, seems to adore him, and not all of them are very nice. The nastiest is probably his head nurse, who is an old flame trying to win him back, and who helps him get rid of the excess husbands. The not-so-good doctor gets away with quite a few of these apparently accidental killings, but he starts to become both greedy and careless. Written by Sharptongue

Creepy
28 July 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Warning : this film may cause you to at least look sideways at your doctor during your next checkup.

Several things puzzle me about this film. For one, what on earth all these women see in this guy ? He's a grade-A creep. For two, how could he get away with so many murders ? I don't think the Japanese police are quite as dimwitted as they appear here.

These concerns aside, this is pretty good and involving journey into the psyche of a highly corrupted character. Nearly everyone in this story is of dodgy character, therefore this movie could fairly be called film noir. The story is, of course, pretty racy, with women disrobing and getting into bed with Doc Toya all over the place. The unraveling of his corrupt character takes up the long second half, and is pretty harrowing.

Overall, not a classic, but worth watching.
