an awesome and shocking masterpiece, 18 October 2000
Author: S.F.1014 from Hohenpeißenberg, Germany

I had the very special honor to watch this movie at it's first screening at the Fantasy Filmfest in munich this year. I even got me an autograph from the director :) There was indeed a big fuzz about the world premiere, director and producer were in the cinema, as well as many camera teams from japanese TV-stations. Before the screening everyone was excited and, well, a bit wriggled, after it, I looked around and what I saw where shocked faces. The movie really is cruel and filled up with blacker than black humor, but it also shows great photography, a very good story with a wonderful ending and good acting by amateurs including the director as well. Watch this movie, if you like horror movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you won't regret it.
