Dead or Alive (1999)

I discovered director Takashi Miike around the year 2002. I believe the very first of his films that I saw was Audition. A friend of mine brought it over to my house for a group viewing and told us nothing about it. What started as a mild drama quickly turned into one of the most […]

Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope (1975)

I have to be honest and say that before Arrow Video put this movie out, I had never heard of it. The cover art plus the title plus Sonny Chiba attracted my attention and I was excited to check out this slice of 70’s action. Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope come from the same director as Sister […]

Shinjuku Triad Society (1995)

Takashi Miike is a devisive director. He’s spent his very prolific career cranking out hyper violent cheap yakuza films, bizarre and often highly disgusting personal films, dramas, a musical, family fantasy films, and high class respectable art cinema. He’s had a varied career to say the list. Best known for Audition, Ichi the Killer, 13 […]

Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion (1972)

I’ve known about the Female Prisoner #701 for many years. Despite this knowledge I’ve never been able to get my hands on any of the films. More often than not the series would go out of print on DVD causing their prices to skyrocket and frankly I had given up. Thanks to the new set […]

A Critical History and Filmography of Toho’s Godzilla Series, 2d ed (2010)

I don’t remember the first Godzilla movie i ever watched. I feel like it must have been at a time in my life before solid memories were formed. I’m sure i first saw one of the films as a very young child on TV. He became a part of my DNA. I have always known […]

Massacre Gun (1967)

U.K. cult film lovers have been enjoying the spoils of Arrow Video for many years now. Known for their killer artwork, beautiful remasters and numerous special features, they have fast become the cream of the crop. I’m so happy that they have decided to branch out and attack the U.S. market. It is Arrow that […]

Vampire Girl Vs Frankenstein Girl (2010)

I love me some J-Gore. I’ve reviewed several films from the current wave and I’m always hungry for more. After the disappointing Samurai Princess and the laughable Sukebanboy, we finally get a film that can proudly stand next to Tokyo Gore Police and The Machine Girl, and of course its from the same guys that […]

Lack of posts

Sorry for the lack of posts. Times are tough and freelancing sucks. Working 11-13 hours a day also blows. But here, let me offer a token of appreciation for you, my loyal visitor. NEW Japanese GORE flicks! Woot. Here’s some trailers for some upcoming gore fests. Please, enjoy. From the directors of the Machine Girl […]

Sukeban Boy (2006)

Ahh the new wave of Japanese gore flicks how I love thee. It’s so nice to see a small but steady stream of hardcore gore films coming from the land of the rising sun, especially since for the most part these films turn their creators into pariahs in their native land. A small collective of […]

Battle Girl: The Living Dead in Tokyo Bay (1991)

I love crazy Japanese gore flicks. From Stacy to Biozombie to The Machine Girl to Tokyo Gore Police. I dig over the top gore filled Japanese trash. Now, I read all the early reviews for Battle Girl and all of them were negative. I’ve got a pretty high tolerance for Japanese cheese so I decided […]
