Storyline

One dark and stormy night, a middle age prison escapee haphazardly breaks into the luxurious mason of a wealthy and privileged family and rapes the young wife in front of her bound husband. A year later, the son conceived by the rapist comes into the world. At the age of sixteen, he studies Nazi atrocities in history class, and feels the awakening of his inner brutality. The time has come. He launches a journey to let off a long-held grudge against the abusive foster father and to seek out a reunion with his genetic dad. He lures out his real father through newspaper ads and invites him to the secret torture chamber in the basement of the house where he confines abducted girls. Their feast of lust and perversion has now begun. Written by Nikkatsu

more than meets the eye
15 November 2001 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

Gave this film a 10 out of 10, which it probably doesn't deserve if you compare it with 'Citizen Kane' but if it's about originality it deserves it.

On the surface, it's just another of those Japan-shock-films. But notice how one girl is set free and how another one is shot on top of a building for everyone to see.

Disguised as a Japan-shocker this is an anarchist smuggler-film. Of course it is not too obvious as such, but still enough to enjoy. Easily the best of Japan-shockers.
