Storyline

Saeko, a somewhat enigmatic young woman, is brutally beaten with a rock and raped by a man wearing a dark-colored mask and black gloves. She eventually recovers, but not long afterwards a series of horrific murders begins occurring in the apartment building she lives in. When it turns out that the victims are badly beaten, then killed and their genitals burned off, Saeko begins to think she has an idea who the killer is, but realizes she may be murdered before she has a chance to expose the maniac.

Rape galore!
25 June 2008 | by TheAgonyOfPlasmaSee all my reviews

"Zoom In: Rape Apartments" plays like an unofficial sequel to Koyu Ohara's nasty and forgotten "Zoom Up: Rape Site". Its approach is more surrealistic, but not less sleazy and depraved. Sexy queen of violent pink Erina Miyai (fondly remembered from "Rape Site" and "Sex Hunter") plays a woman who was attacked by rapist few years ago. She recalls the man pretty well. Actually he lives in the same apartment building! When she witnesses him raping two sexy Japanese lads, she becomes sexually aroused by a brutal act of violation. The usual theme of woman's submission is taken to the extreme. The rape scenes will be tough to watch for unprepared viewers, but there is enough wall-to-wall sleaze to fill three separate exploitation movies. The film was released in Japan on DVD - great transfer, unfortunately no subs for English speaking audience. Pinku lovers, give it a look.
