Aspiring songwriter Ricky Barry thinks he's hit the big time when he wins a contest with his song. Instead, singing sensation Kennedy Ross steals his song and makes it a hit. Ricky's been ganked, but he's determined to get his revenge.
If, like me, you are a gore-hound in possession of an un-subtitled and un-dubbed copy of this film, and your Japanese is a tad rusty (ie., you don't understand a word they are saying), then worry not: at 35 minutes long, Biotherapy is still entertaining stuff, even if you haven't a clue what is going on. Thanks to some brilliantly realistic and very bloody special effects, the film is definitely worth a watch if splatter is your thing.
The story, from what I could gather, sees a glowing, masked, hat-wearing alien (who seems to be in search of some kind of special chemical), chasing a group of scientists and killing them in a variety of nasty ways. Gruesome highlights include an impressive eyeball removal, death by broken test tubes (they are rammed into a woman's chest and her blood pumps messily out of the endsvery juicy!!), and a yucky disembowelling.
At the end of the film, the alien is unmasked, revealing a rather amusing toothy creature.
Biotherapy is good gory fun, and perfect fare if you've a tight schedule and can't fit in a full feature.
