Organ is definitely not a film for the faint-hearted or those easily nauseated. Made in Japan by first-time director Kei Fujiwara (an actress best known for starring in the cult film Tetsuo: The Iron Man), it is the grim story of a pair of detectives who stumble across a ring of thieves who deal not in gems or stolen electronics, but human organs, which the villains graphically and forcefully harvest from living victims. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
Entrails of a Beautiful Woman
Underground cult director Kazuo Komizu, using the pseudonym "Gaira," created quite a stir with his trio of erotic horror films which push the envelope of near-pornographic sex and violence about as far as it will go. This was the first of the trilogy, a story about a pretty psychologist (Megumi Ozawa) who is raped, murdered, and dismembered while trying to avenge the suicide of a patient who was raped by a Yakuza gangster. Buried along with the remains of a rival gangster, Ozawa somehow melds with his corpse and comes back from the grave as a hermaphrodite zombie bent on revenge. The blood flows heavily and often, and the murders are quite extreme, including an inventively perverse sequence in which the gangster's wife is forced to perform oral sex on the bisexual monster's male organ while the female one suffocates her. Gaira got even more perverse with Goumon Kifujin and the legendary Shojo No Harawata over the next two years. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
Evil Dead Trap
Toshiharu Ikeda directed this provocative horror film which spawned two sequels. Miyuki Ono stars as Nami, a talk-show hostess who receives a grotesque snuff video in the mail. She is outraged as she sees a young woman horribly murdered on the tape, complete with a truly foul sequence in which a blade is graphically plunged into the victim's eyeball. With her crew, Nami decides to track down the killer, leading her to an abandoned factory where her crew is repulsively slaughtered one by one. The outlandish ending depicts a man giving birth to his own split personality. Fumi Katsuragi, Hitomi Kobayashi, and Eriko Nakagawa co-star in this sickening but riveting slasher, which closely imitates Italian thrillers by Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava in style. The unrelated Shiryo No Wana 2: Hideki (1991) followed. All three films in the series were written by Takashi Ishii. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
Entrails of a Virgin
Kazuo Komizu, again using the pseudonym "Gaira," followed up his graphic 1986 film Bijo No Harawata with this even more lurid amalgam of graphic sex and stomach-churning violence. Three male photographers and their three female models drive down a lonely fog-blanketed road late at night and have to seek shelter in an isolated house, not knowing that a slimy zombie has risen from a nearby swamp and wants to kill them. The six engage in kinky sex games before being murdered in various gory ways. Eyes are popped from skulls, heads are lopped off, a man is hung from a metal hook, and so on. These events drive one of the models so crazy that she begins pleasuring herself with her dead boyfriend's severed arm before she is raped and disemboweled by the enormously endowed swamp monster. Quite a popular item in certain circles, the film's preoccupation with rape and violence toward women, while admittedly beyond the pale by American standards, is common in Japanese exploitation films. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
