shown to me without my having any prior knowledge of it whatsoever. I
saw it when it first came out on video and my friend simply said,
"You've gotta see this," with an innocent smile. So I figured "what
the hell" and sat down and watched it. Little did I know I was in for
one hell of a horrific mindfuck.
The story behind the
movie seems simple enough; a lonely Japanese widower, Aoyama, decides
to attend an audition in which women try out for a part in a
non-existent movie. What they don't realize is that they're actually
trying out for a part in Aoyama's pants.
Girl after girl goes by,
and Aoyama seems to be bored out of his mind. And then, she
shows up. Yamazaki Asami is a very reserved, quiet person... yet
Aoyama can't help but being completely intrigued by her. And that's
all it takes. He's clearly fallen for her hook, line, and sinker. And
man oh man, is he about to sink.
After informing her that
he'll call her back, we see some extremely disturbing shots of her
simply sitting on the floor, waiting by the phone. It's almost as if
she's willing it to ring with all of her strength. How long has she
been there? Days? Weeks? Who knows, the girl is clearly off her
rocker. And let's not forget that big sack in the background. Yes
indeed, that's where she keeps her special deformed friend... whom she
feeds vomit to.
After more and more
bizarre sequences, we finally reach the climax of the movie in which
Asami has spiked Aoyama's drink with a paralyzing agent. She informs
him that he can't move his body, but he can still feel pain. Lots and
lots of pain.
Dressed in rubber glove
and a rubber apron (hey, why splatter blood on that nice white dress,
right?) she begins to torture him by sticking needles into his chest.
While he's in complete agony, all she does is smile with glee. It's
creepy as hell. Further more, whenever she sticks a needle in she says
"Deeper, deeper..." But in Japanese, it sounds like she's really
saying "Kitty, kitty..." over and over again.
So yeah, now anytime I
hear somebody call for their cat, "Here kitty kitty kitty!" I get a
little bit nervous and make sure there's no needles in sight. Thanks
Well, after she's done
sticking needles in his eyes and torso, she busts out a wire that is
capable of sawing through flesh and bone with ease. It appears to be
her favorite lil' toy because she's smiling more than ever now. Oh and
what exactly is she sawing off?
Aoyama's foot. After
all, if she cuts off his foot, he'll never be able to walk out on her.
And why would he want to? She's clearly quite a catch.
Congrats Aoyama! She's
