Movie Reviews

WOW!!!
jpeib | A shack in the mountains | 11/01/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film is very disturbing, even for a former Army Sniper! Not many movies truley disturb me, some are disgusting (blood and guts) some are scary (Boo!) but this one is almost a snuff film. I wouldn't give it 5 stars because its really unsettling and not everyone should watch this movie. I ran out and saw it after seeing a few clips on Bravo and I will buy it now.

People think American's are sick, but this (and Unit 731 and Bataan...) may make people think twice."
Excellent Box Set

"Audition is definetly the best of these three. Some gore towards the end but overall not as graphic as many japanese horror films. Nice plot and some scary moments lead up to a nice ending. City of Lost Souls is a decent movie with some humorous scenes. Violent and fast paced. Another good ending. Finally Happiness of the Katakuris is a big laugh unto itself. A musical horror comedy if that is imaginable. Overall this box set is a good sampling of Takashi Miike movies and clearly shows three very different styles."
