Very very weird movie, about a serial killer.... or so i believe. This does NOT picture any giant octopus or sea creature!
24 September 2005 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie, and I can fairly say that the review that has been written is NOT the correct one. This movie is completely different and has nothing to do with a giant octopus! For me, I was really disappointed about this, because I had read the review and thought this was definitely a movie for me. I am a big fan of giant-kick-ass-monster-flicks. But boy was I in for a surprise.

This movie is very very weird, and it indeed is a style the director Gou Suzuki has adopted to his creations. I watched this movie on a tape, with no subtitles at all. And fair to say my Japanese is not the best. Therefor i have with out a doubt missed a lot in this movie. But from just watching the scenes and the acting, this is not a very good movie. It jumps way to fast from one scene to another, and there doesn't seem to be an actual plot, other than a guy who kills people for the Yakuza. But as I said, i watched this with no subs, so i could be wrong.

But I have given this a low rating, as I was very disappointed in the movie. Not only did i expect something completely different, but the picture, acting and scenes in general were to the point of being ridicules. I would very much like to watch this movie again with subs on, in order to get the story and all, but there is no doubt this movie is not one of my favorites, not will it ever be.

Actually, the reason I am writing this review is, so that others who may be looking for this movie, don't get the same surprise as me. It took me 3 years to find this movie and watch it, because it just cant be found anywhere. I have seen some people look for this movie, and I have been one of them. I just wanted to tell people, that his is not a giant squid movie. It does have horror elements in it, and a small amount of gore, but nothing special. Not compared to what Japan has produced of gore flicks over the year.

My advice, watch something els.... and don't read the first review posted for this movie! He has gotten it all wrong, and has with out a doubt not seen this movie at all. I can only guess that the movie he saw was the American Octopus movie, that indeed has a giant squid in it. This one however does NOT!
