I was searching this one for a long time but by visiting horror conventions here in Europe I was glad that I found it. Available on region 1 DVD from Unearthed Films, that says enough. And what a weird experience it was. The first minute you immediately know you are watching a Japanese flick. But expect to see a gory flick as Unearthed has released before. This is an arty flick with some weird parts in it. It's all a bit over the top but still it's one to see if you dig art flicks. It's all about the way it was shot, extremely close-ups in wide angel giving strange effects, the use of colours and light and the way some movements were filmed does give it that arty feeling. I was surprised by the nudity in it, there weren't those typical blurred private parts like in so many Japanese flicks. It never is gory but here and there the red stuff do flows. Maybe it clocks in a bit too long for such a feature but it's a classic over there by smashing blockbusters back then at the cinema's. Don't point your finger to me if you don't understand it all but be advised to have a strong stomach due the vomiting scene's. And no, it's not about Pinocchio's nose.
