Just over half-an-hour of juicy Japanese gore.
20 September 2007 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

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 ends—very 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.
