Hyper dark and sadistic horror film.
26 September 2004 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Kichiku dai Enkai" is an excellent horror film,a tour de force of almost unbearable proportions about a left wing terrorist group that becomes increasingly self-destructible after their leader Aizawa has been arrested by the police.This intense,disturbing and ultra-twisted gore soaked political/student revolt/horror flick from Japan has to be seen to be believed.Especially the second half of "Kichiku" is incredibly nihilistic,demented,perverse,ultra-gory,sick,hyper violent,intense and gritty.In one extremely revolting scene a guy puts a rifle into a woman's crotch and pulls the trigger.The film is certainly well-made and the acting is excellent.It features some extremely gory and mostly convincing effects that are well staged and realistically shot.So if you're a fan of extreme cinema give this low-budget masterpiece a look.Just beware,there is absolutely no way to have fun watching "Kichiku" and whilst that will surely limit its audience,I find it pretty impressive.10 out of 10.
