sick, not for me it was, or am I sick?
27 July 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Muzan e, stated as a sickie from Japan, only available on terrible downloads and terrible copies. But let me tell you, it had a proper release on DVD in 2010 but is already OOP, it was maybe available for a few days. If you know your way you could catch a copy, otherwise you will be stuck forever with a bad copy. Luckily I found me a digital remaster on DVD, and have seen the downloads I can say, what an improvement. So far so good. But the flick itself isn't that sick as told. The mystery about this flick is solved now that it is available on DVD with interviews with the director. Still, it's a good story and I guess that Japanese people do have a n obsession with tampons because here we go again just like in Tampon Tango. But it's the other way, the tampon, a used one, is being teared out of a vagina and is being put into the girls mouth. Than a guy goes sucking out the blood out of her, well, you can guess it. One reporter goes searching what is going on in the world of porn, but get a VHS with some snuff on it, she wants to know if it's real and yes, she finds out but it goes wrong from there. There is a lot of blah blah in it and sadly for most people it won't have subs, on the other hand, private parts are blurred and even some faces are blurred. For me it's okay to see but I wouldn't classify it in the top ten of sickest flicks ever. Still, glad I have it in my possession as official remastered release.
