the most emotional of the series
12 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A year after the release of "High School Co Ed" saw the second movie in the series "Red Classroom" get released. Wheras the first film showed the ghastly acts of rape themselves, this one is more interested in the devastating aftermath and psychological effects it can produce, as well as how easily one can blur reality with the celluloid world. Tetsuro Muraki, a pornographer, becomes obsessed with Nami Tsuchiya, when he sees her on a video in a school girl themed rape scene, only to find out that she's very far from the innocent that he made her to be in his mind, leading to a powerful and devastating ending. While the film lacks the raw edge of "High School Co Ed, I found this film to be endlessly more fascinating and a much deeper experience.

My Grade: B

DVD Extras: Commentary by Jasper Sharp; Bio/Filmographies; Separate Interviews with Takashi Ishii (17 minutes) and Takashi Ishii on Chusei Sone (10 minutes); Original Sleeve art; and Trailers for this and 4 other Angel Guts Films (High School Co Ed, Nami, Red Vertigo, & Red Porno) all available in Artsmagik's Box-set, but for some reason the 6th film "Angel Guts: Red Flash" is not in the set
