Goofs

While the demon has the nurse in his possession he soon shoves both her hands into the wall of the hospital room they are in. This is practically impossible as the wall was lined with thick tile resting over an even thicker amount of drywall, meaning that her hands would not have penetrate the wall in the slightest.

Watch the Japanese version
21 October 2005 | by prottierSee all my reviews

Watch the Japanese version. Avoid the English dubbed version. It has been censored. And the most important clues of the plot happen exactly at those moments that were deemed too graphic for American viewers. As a result, in the English version the story makes much less sense.

Now, about the movie. This is a masterpiece of sick and twisted fantasy, filled with an obscene amount of sex and violence. And usually, the two are combined. It's an epic tale of the fight between good and evil, however, like most anime movies, it's never entirely clear who is good and who is evil. Aside to this, there are several smaller and more personal story lines as well, like the love between two teenagers, a kid and his alcoholic father and a few others.

The quality of animation of anime movies has improved much over the years and this movie is clearly one of the older ones. But it's still unique in its kind. It's one of the great anime classics, together with such movies Akira and Fist of the North Star.
