Tokyo Strangler (2006)

* (out of 4)

A serial killer with a dark and perverted mind goes out with women before punishing them for wanting to have sex. By punishing them he usually ties them up, sexually plays with them and then rapes and murders them.

TOKYO STRANGLER is pretty much what you'd expect from a Japanese film that tries to be both perverted and disturbing. Like most films like it, this one here is rather perverted in its own way yet I do find it rather laughable that the pubic hair and full frontal nudity is still blurred out. There are scenes where the man is raping the women and I've just always found the digital altering to be rather distracting.

With that said, this is a pretty poor movie that will only appeal to those who love anything this twisted genre has to offer. At just 63 minutes the film seems twice as long because none of the characters are all that interesting and this is especially true for the serial killer. The dialogue is rather laughable at times and I'd argue that there's really not too much energy to be had. Even worse is the fact that it's really not that disturbing or shocking.
