Tasty!
16 May 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Gaki Damashii, aka The Tastiest Flesh, is easily one of the strangest Japanese horror films of the Nineties (and that's saying a lot!) The plot involves a journalist infected by a ghost or alien which then grows or incubates inside his stomach for a fortnight before painfully coming back up and out his mouth. The "birth" scene is gross and dramatic, almost rivaling ALIEN. As soon as the baby monster is born, it is snatched away by a mysterious stranger. The journalist soon discovers that the stranger is actually a former infectee who has acquired a taste for the little monsters (they're good with vegetables). Apparently, their flesh is so good that once a person has tasted it they become addicted to it (hence "The Tastiest Flesh", get it).

Although packed with some good shocks, the film brevity makes it feel incomplete. Most of the plot lines are underdeveloped, and many key questions go unanswered. It seems that such a unique concept could have sustained a film twice as long. Still, its worth seeing if you get the chance. The only place I've ever seen it sold at is Video Search of Miami
