Mediocre J-Splatter...
1 February 2006 | by EVOL666See all my reviews

I had been meaning to get a copy of BIOTHERAPY for a while, but kept pushing it to the "bottom of the list" as other films that I had been looking for took priority. Well, I finally got my hands on this one, and honestly, I can't say that I was all that impressed. This one is also in Japanese with no subs/dubs, so here's what I gathered from it:

Some kind of alien-thing is going around killing a bunch of scientists...that's pretty much it. Since this film clocks in at just barely over a half hour, plot is not really a main concern in this one.

When I researched BIOTHERAPY a while back, it had been described as a "notorious splatterfest" and other equally intriguing descriptions. Honestly, it's not bad in terms of gore, and there's an eyeball removal scent that's among the best that I've seen, but other than that, the gore in BIOTHERAPY is no heavier or more outstanding than any other Japanese "extreme" splatter film. Maybe I've been watching too much of this trash lately and have become jaded - but BIOTHERAPY was nothing exceptional to me. Recommended to extreme J-splatter fans only - anyone else shouldn't bother. A pretty generous 6/10 because it did deliver some red stuff, and the eyeball scene was noteworthy...
