The first 20-30 minutes really lull you into a false sense of security. It's almost like this charming little drama. Then director Sion Sono chops you up into miniscule pieces and burns your bones in a trashcan. Highly recommended for fans of Japanese horror. With Takashi Miike having gone 'respectable' with "13 Assassins," Sono might just be the premiere voice in extreme Asian cinema.
