Sailor Moon Just Doesn't Wanna Live No More...Part 2 In The Series
29 January 2006 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

I got this as part of a set of 6 harakiri films, mainly because the films are kind of rare and I wanted to see what the fuss was about. Having only seen 2 previous harakiri-style films, I figured I'd give this series a shot to see if they brought anything to the table...well, they didn't really...

Much in the fashion of all the other films on this set (and this genre as a whole), this one has a girl in a costume-like outfit (this time Sailor Moon, or maybe just a Japanese school-girl outfit - in either case she looks like Sailor Moon...) who starts of by looking at a photo album of pictures of the first girl in this set of films. She seems to be turned on and figures that gutting herself might make things better. The requisite gut stabbing and entrails-pulling ensue...

As a harakiri-style film - I'll give it a 6, as the "actress's" motivation in this one, namely that she appears to be turned-on by the thought of ritual suicide is an interesting take on the genre (and trust me people, I'm grasping for any sort of substance with these films...), but this one still isn't as strong an entry as LOST PARADISE or Tamakichi Anaru's WOMEN'S FLESH or PSYCHO: SUICIDE DOLLS. 6/10 as a harakiri film - 2/10 as an "enjoyable" horror film - only worth seeing in terms of gore and repulsiveness, or for true "fans" of this genre - although I have to be honest and say I've never met a true fan of this genre...
