This movie has appeal in terms of its sheer over-the-top ridiculousness. Looking back on it, I'm shocked that all that happened in only 84 minutes. Monks and yakuza and incest and (uh) all sorts of other things I won't describe. The plot is convoluted and characters unbelievable, but it is interesting in its parodying of yakuza films.
