My 200th Review!!! Flower of Flesh and Blood/ Devil Woman Doctor
Dir: Hideshi Hino
Flower of Flesh and Blood opens with a piece of written text stating that this was in fact a tape sent to Director and famous manga writer Hideshi Hino by a fan and what we witness is in fact real. The video begins with shots of a woman apparently being followed by someone during her daily routine, until she is drugged and kidnapped by a man who we are lead to believe was the one following her. The woman awakes to find herself tied and bound to a table inside a dark dungeon where she is greeted by a man dressed as a Samurai that has rather large collection of interesting tools nearby. The man sharpens his blades and decapitates a chicken in front of her warning that this fate is what awaits her. The man then drugs he woman with a concoction that seems to turn the sensation of pain into indescribable pleasure. After the injection this is where the gruesomeness begins and it does not stop until the closing scene.
I have to say that this is by far not my favorite film by any means but what it lacks in story and development it more than makes up for in amazing effects and it is sad that the fx artist did not have a bigger career after this film. If you enjoy "Torture Porn" then this is a must see because it is most definitely a forefather of the genre and honestly is done much better than the films in that particular genre. Definitely worth a watch if you like your films a little extreme.
Overall:5.5 out of 10 (Not much to this film other than the gore but the gore is top notch)
