Karaoke Terror. Just like the title suggests... nuts! Based in Japan, a young man murders a middle-aged woman who refuses him carnal knowledge. Her five divorced, middle-aged friends seek revenge, which ignites a feud with his five friends. The anty is upped with each vengeful, retaliatory strike.

Understand that this film is a black comedy that never takes itself seriously and if you try and take the film seriously, you won't enjoy it. It does offer interesting commentary on the dullness of middle-age, friendship loyalty, and the way in which folks communicate, however, the complete package is nothing more than a dizzying, wild ride. It is not meant to be some profound demonstration. At least, to take it so would be ridiculous.
