Editorial Reviews

A powerful and secretive corporation is conducting underground psychic experiments utilizing Digital Direct Drive, otherwise known as DDD. While under the influence of the drug ether, the human subjects are outfitted in rubber suits and bombarded with DDD with extremely intense sound. Though the experiments are successful in unleashing psychic powers in the test subjects, the results are usually fatal. As a result, the corporation attempts to shut down the experiments against the wishes of Motomiya and Hitotsubashi who are in charge of the research.
In a desperate attempt to salvage their work, the two researchers take over the lab and hold an innocent secretary hostage while they transform their fellow researcher into an ether addict and use him as the final human guinea pig for their experiments. The result has to be seen to be believed as his psychic powers are unleashed in a wave of ferocity that will leave you breathless.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a no popcorn movie December 31, 2004
By Imrada
Format:DVD
I strongly suggest not eating during this movie. I thought this movie was kind of cool, but gruesome.

The movie has a somewhat disjointed plot, but seems to tie things up okay in the end. There are really only six characters in this movie, so in some ways it is more like a disjointed play. A play with blood spray, entrails, cannibalism, and the almost manadatory rapes scenes (though, thankfully, no tentacles).

The premise of this movie is that if you torture people with sound and hype them up on ether, you can induce psychic abilities. The two mad-scientists are essentially creating a monster. The movie is sort of like watching Frankenstein on acid.

A word of warning, if you are not into horror or into Japanese films I would strongly suggest you stay away from this film. It is horrific, and it is very Japanese.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good...strange...I'm just not too sure... December 29, 2004
Format:DVD
While I'm a big fan of the underground movie scene...even the Japanese movie scene that seems to have exploded in America, I can honestly say I don't know how I feel about this film. It's brilliant but at the same time I feel so DIRTY for watching it. Perhaps that's what the director was going for...

I do recommend you buy this even if you're the slightest bit curious. However, if you're looking for some clean cut answers, this is NOT for you. Even when you check out the extra features and watch the interview with the director, it will leave you puzzled.

In the same breath though, I enjoyed watching it. The gritty look of black and white film adds to the "psychoticness" of the overall story. I'd be pressed to say that the characters in the film explore the more primal side of the human psyche.

Ok ok...to sum it up, just buy it! See it for yourself. I still need to watch it a few more times...

The Good Things
*Extremely vivid filming style. Lots of great photography and strong imagery. Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch can eat their hearts out.
*Filmed in glorious black and white! (Although color enthusiasts may hate this).
*Good production design, especially for what appears to be a low-budget film.
*Good acting (even though they spend a good deal of time screaming their heads off).
*Interesting sound design (even though a few parts are kind of irritating).
*Interesting music.

The Bad Things
*Not for the squeamish. Contains quite a few bloody scenes, a rape scene, and one or two other sex scenes.
*Plot is practically incomprehensible. Lots of parts that make you wonder "What the heck is going on now?"

The Questionable Things
*Lots of demented torture scenes and madness.
*Extremely weird too.

This is like watching "Pi" with lots of graphicness and madness. The plot is hard to follow, but the film has lots of awesome camera angles and strong imagery. Sometimes, it's hard to tell if the film is trying to be artistic or just plain mad. In either case, the storyline suffers tremendously, and most people may not really care for this. You'll either hate this, or sit back and revel in the insanity.

The DVD is in fullscreen, and has good picture and sound quality. Special features inclue an older short film, an interview, a photo gallery, and one or two trailers.
