Storyline

Monzo Kobayashi is a dime-novel writer. He goes to see the stage of Ranko Mizuki, a star of an all-girls'-operetta company known as Asakusa Revue. Monzo notices a creepy man sitting beside him who keeps his head slumped down and does not even look up when Ranko appears on stage. On the way home from the theater, Monzo encounters another creepy situation. A dwarf (inch-high samurai) with a child-sized body and a grown-up's head passes right by him and is carrying a woman's arm that has been sliced off from the shoulder. Being a writer, this strangely enhances his interest of this dwarf and he begins an investigation about dwarfs. At the same time, his old friend Yurie visits him. Monzo secretly has a crush on her but knows that she is married to some one else. Yurie asks Monzo to introduce her to his friend, the detective, Kogoro Akechi. Monzo agrees to this and takes her to Akechi's apartment. When Akechi tells them about his current investigation, Monzo surprisingly finds out that ... Written by Division 1656

I am upset.....
15 May 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

as it says above, I am upset that I wasted my time to (1)get this movie and (2) watch this movie.

With a title like Blind Beast vs Killer Dwarf, the potential is enormous. Throw in SM, a dwarf, over the hill actress (nudity), starlets trying to get into the biz (so willing to get their kit off), dwarf abuse and the "VS" in title the movie sounded like even though it would be bad it would be at the very least be worth a few laughs and be entertaining.

WRONG on all counts. This movie is bad. The acting by all involved is horrible, the sets are laughable, (white fabric is supposed to look like a cave?) The blind beast is a skinny blind guy wearing an iron chastity belt!!! and doing what he does for art, he's (censored) blind for (censored) sake!! The dwarf is a dwarf who wants to be normal.

The worst part is there is no VS. I had assume they would eventually go head to head ....errr probably not since one is a dwarf...but go toe to toe. NOTHING of that nature at all.

You can read about the plot line in the other reviews, I cant say i paid attention much to the story, I was fast forwarding through this amateurish, terrible, waste of time.
