Bound to a wheelchair, life has been difficult for poor Yasu (Hirohito Honda of Battle Royale). His mother has vanished, his father and brother think he's crazy, and his sister shelters him from the outside world. But Yasu has yet to experience the true meaning of torture until new relatives mysteriously move in. Labeled "The Japanese Chainsaw Massacre" (minus the chainsaws) by fans, director Shugo Fujii has fashioned a mysterious horror film with stylish sequences that pay homage to directors Brian De Palma and Alfred Hitchcock. Filled with moments of sheer terror, Living Hell joins ranks alongside Ringu (The Ring) and Ju-On (The Grudge) as a masterpiece of modern Asian horror.
"Living Hell has all the elements to make it a classic cult horror film." -- Video Store, August 8-14, 2004
Subtitled in English.The movie starts off really slow and with it being in Japanese it just makes the movie slower.If you don't like Subtitled movies this is not for you.Published on September 9, 2011 by eric barmore
It has everything in terms of atmosphere and the way torture is shown. They wanted to create a masterpiece, but it just does not come across convincingly. Read morePublished on December 2, 2009 by K.L. Frederick

Went in with high hopes...It had creepy moments, especially the old woman and the young girl. The lead character in the wheelchair was miscast in my opinion. Read morePublished on May 18, 2005 by Morado
