One Out Of Ten Aliens.
20 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Biotherapy is a cheesy Japanese horror that has the cliché story that might have been repeated a few times, but with scientists, sadly, the unoriginal story isn't enough, we get this very cheesy alien disguise, who appears to wear clothes, which we should explain which planet where aliens dress like human, all we got is a big fat ignorance from the director, he clearly was making a bad movie right on set and we're supposed to have that feeling, but basically Plan 9 is the best worst movie is the feeling I'm having, at least that film was fun. This was not. This is just a terrible movie with a dull story that has been used several times. We get it.

Biotherapy might have been a good horror short but it's just a brainless gore fest where the alien goes on a rampage and kills people without any explanation. Why is the alien killing people? Where did the alien come from? It's best for the director to not answer these questions because he's more brainless than this movie.

Biotherapy has some of the worst special effects on screen. Every creep who watches this just loves how bad the FX is. We can see the freaking pixels around the alien's hands. Biotherapy has a really irritating sound queue that loops over and over until you will go almostly insane. Biotherapy is pretty much a lost Japanese horror film and deserves that treatment.
