Bizarre and gory horror flick based on Hideshi Hino's manga.
15 June 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Boy From Hell" is about a surgeon who brings her son named Daio back from the dead,only he's now a decomposing corpse boy with a taste for blood and human flesh.In 2004,Pony Canyon decided to adapt six different Hino manga stories,all of these shorts were made by different filmmakers using digital video.Mari Asato's "The Boy From Hell" is a grotesque and surprisingly gory horror flick.Daio looks truly creepy and actually resembles murderous babies from Larry Cohen's "It's Alive" series.The acting is fine,the cinematography is great and the use of colors is very Argentoesque.Overall,"The Boy From Hell" should satisfy fans of gruesome Japanese manga stories.It's not as sickeningly brutal and morbid as several "Guinea Pig" movies,but still packs a punch.8 out of 10.
