Storyline

Saeko, a somewhat enigmatic young woman, is brutally beaten with a rock and raped by a man wearing a dark-colored mask and black gloves. She eventually recovers, but not long afterwards a series of horrific murders begins occurring in the apartment building she lives in. When it turns out that the victims are badly beaten, then killed and their genitals burned off, Saeko begins to think she has an idea who the killer is, but realizes she may be murdered before she has a chance to expose the maniac.

exceedingly well made
19 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an exceedingly well made 'pink', if indeed it properly qualifies as one. It is at once, sexy and nasty, with some superbly shot sex scenes and some terrible violence (of the setting fire to naked women variety). Some reviewers have referenced, 'giallo' and there is certainly an element here, with the edgy violence, black leather gloves and the general air of dream/nightmare. A slight blurring of the real and unreal and done with such style and confidence we never loose track of the goings on, even if at times we might prefer to. Every frame looks good, even the building sites and the feeling of desolation, even the nastiness and the scenes of transgression, seemingly endured and enjoyed in equal part.
