"Oh no! I'm getting horny again!"

"Not since high school have I had so much fun not knowing what was going on.
Two cute teenage girls and their mother are being harassed by the public and hounded relentlessly by news crews because their missing brother has been accused of decapitating four girls. That's the only thing I figured out 100% cause after that things got wackier than Takashi Miike on mushrooms including necrophilia, three rape scenes, a scalping, headless zombies, a musical number, lots of screaming, vomiting, violent telekinetic murders, brutal fight scenes with axes, incest and even a nuclear explosion!
What does it all mean? I don't know and I couldn't care less. I just know I couldn't peel my eyes from the screen in anticipation of what was going to happen next.
If you enjoy the more frenzied moments of films by Miike, Tsukamoto or Lynch then you should check out the unpredictable CRAZY LIPS. "What is truly happening in this house?!"
We need this for the ceremony....

"Twisted, twisted, twisted. Thats the best word I can describe this movie with. FIRST, its not a traditional horror, more like a multi-genre movie. It starts as most J-horrors do, slowly, but once it starts gaining momentum it doesnt let up till the end. More confusing than any other movie, I found myself with my jaw on the floor, saying "No, they can't do that!". Way, way over the top in its attempts to be cruel, I really enjoyed it. You had better be pretty tough to endure some of the stuff they throw at you. Some parts will sicken you to the core, and others will make you laugh. For fans of J-horror, you MUST see this, just to get a handle on these reviews. It is made by a fantastic group, but takes a far different path than most."
Vile and Nasty

"When I say this is a vile and nasty film, I'm saying that as a recommendation. For what I perceive to be a very polite and mannered society, the Japanese certainly crank out some of the nastiest and ugliest horror films you (n)ever wanted to see, and this one is no exception. This one, however, has some comedy to it, and it's not exactly slapstick but a couple scenes come kind of close, in a twisted way. A family is plagued by reporters and police because supposedly the son is a serial killer, and one girl enlists the help of some psychics to help find the real killer, because she knows he's innocent. However, the psychics turn out to be psychos too, and subject the family to all sorts of indignities, which is putting things rather mildly. There are some goofy FBI agents (in Japan?) and some headless zombie girls wandering around, not to mention a bunch of way nastier things that go on. One girl even sings a song while she's being tailed by Lucy, the blond Japanese FBI agent....most weird. At any rate, if you love the new wave of weird Japanese films out there then this is truly worth checking out, it'll mess with your head."

"Holy smokes, this is a warped movie, certainly original as well. There are so many combinations of styles from horror to comedy to kung fu, even a musical number. It's almost a retro homage and works totally. Each character has a different flavor and you will never guess what they end up doing. The craziness never ends here. Another aspect that held my attention was the fact many parts caught me completely off guard. To name a few surprises- rape, incest, necrophilia, just watch and enjoy..."
