one of the famous Japanese entries in the splatter genre
Girl Hell isn't that known by the lovers of Japanese horror but it do is a classic by the Japanese splatter gore lovers. Up to this writing it never had a proper release outside Japan so it is only available in Japanese language and even then it's hard to find. Still, some are disappointed by this flick because the nudity scene's are blurred, a typical Japanese phenomena.
But for the lovers of ultra extreme flicks Girl Hell is available on DVD-R together with another ultra rare flick, Women's Flesh: My Red Guts. The difference between the two is that Girl Hell is a real flick with actors and WFMRG looks like a snuff flick. There's only one girl in it, unknown.
Girl Hell was for me not that extreme as being said. It's more a kind of exploitation flick were we follow one girl having a bad day. For some it might be a strange flick because we do see milk coming out of a breast while feeding a doll! Further on we do see a wife being raped by her husband but not on a normal way, she's strapped like a mummy. It do becomes weirder and weirder but gore is left out. The red stuff do flows but most of the ugly parts are done off-screen. naturally being only available in Japanese language it may be hard to watch for some but you will get the picture while watching it. I thought it would be ultra gory but be honest, it never really becomes that it only has a few rare situations.

But it's the second flick on the famous disc that do delivers the extremities. sadly it's of bad quality but people who can catch it will be glad to have a copy of this notorious flick. What we do see here is just one girl going berserk on her own body. Being influenced by an experimental drug she first finds out that penetrating her body do has his satisfaction. The only thing she uses herefor is some kind of metal spoon look-a like. She enters it in her mouth soon to be placed in her vagina until blood runs out. Once she's bleeding the drug do what it got to do and she starts to enjoy by cutting her body with a fork to be replaced later by a knife. She discovers that pain do gives thrills. the pain do becomes excessive until mutilation of the body becomes extreme.
Clearly not for everybody and comes into the regions of the almost lost an extreme rare to find Chinoumi by which none is known, not the actors or the director, another bizarre entry in Japanese underground splatter flicks. But it even can become more extreme with another hard to get example, the flicks by the Daikichi's Genki-Genki production house.
Japan, a strange country with the most extreme flicks.
