Bizarre Japanese creature flick.
2 April 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Gakidama" is an 80's Japanese horror flick about a reporter,who is sent out to cover a story about a couple who spotted a spirit known as a Gakidama out in the woods.While investigating the hapless reporter becomes host to the spirit and to please the spirit he must consume as much as possible.Things turn worst when it comes time for the creature to be released and it finds its way out through his mouth tearing his jaw almost completely off.After months have passed from the terrible incident,the man who once birthed a demon is now left only with the desire to consume it.Bizarre and fascinating Cronenbergian horror film about a man,who gives a birth to gakidama spirit,the larva of ghouls.It owes a lot to Ridley Scott's "Alien" too.The creature looks nice and there is a bit of gore."Gakidama" is very hard to come by,so if you find a copy grab it as soon as possible.8 out of 10.
