Pretty Twisted - Give It a Look
9 September 2005 | by EVOL666See all my reviews

I really liked this film for what it is. As far as being a student film, I feel that it's very ambitious and professional. The camera-work is good, as well as the acting and storyline. KICHIKU is basically about a group of radicals whose group begins to disintegrate when their leader is arrested. The leaders girlfriend is handed control of the group, and it all goes to hell from there. KICHIKU can be dull at times, so I can see why a lot of people don't feel this film. Personally, I think that overall it is very atmospheric and dark, and has some very well done scenes of violence. If you are into non-stop blood and guts - don't bother with this one - it will be too long and tedious for you (all the violence happens in the last half hour or so...), but if you have some patience I would at least suggest this as a rental - there are definitely some good gore scenes that are worth checking out. 7 1/2 out of 10
