Unlike anything I've ever seen... ...In a good way.
25 December 2004 | by (Eugene, Oregon) – See all my reviews

Crazy Lips is every sick and twisted thing you could possibly fit in a two hour movie, jumping from genre to genre without missing a beat, and it's all the better for it's apparent senselessness. It's billed as being "from the makers of Ringu, Juon and Audition", but don't expect a haunting ghost story. This film defies classification, and must be seen to be believed. My only warning is that this movie is very graphic and perverse. I recently held a screening of this film for some friends, and though many walked out before the end, those who stayed laughed hard and long. If sick and twisted are adjectives that have been used to describe you, be sure not to miss Crazy Lips.
