A young scientist named Eiji (Sadao Abe from "Uzumaki") decides to follow in his father's footsteps to help humanity by developing a drug that converts pain into pleasure. To test it out, he secretly adds his drug to a contraceptive that his mother has been performing clinical trials on with three young women at a local clinic. Of these women, one is enamored with eating, one is obsessively narcissistic, while the third has one seious case of insomnia.


Eiji begins following the three unsuspecting guinea pigs to see their reaction to his new creation, covertly videotaping them and methodically recording the results. Things start to get out of control when the women realize that the more pain they inflict on themselves, the better it feels! Eiji is unable to contain the womens' obsession with pleasure and his own obsession with one of them.


Cult director Hisayasu Sato (Rampo Noir) examines the detriment of a culture absorbed with superficiality and consumption. He does so with some of the nastiest, most over the top and sure to be discussed scenes ever shot on film, including the infamous coochielicious culinary delight, fish fry fingers, and the "pretty pretty" school of piercing!

This is not a movie for everyone, not only because of the extreme gore fx, but also because of the deep message underlying the story which is far from conventional. Don't be fooled by the DVD artwork, that looks like an ad for a campy and cheap film, even though the film is indeed "cheap", in the sense of the financial limitations of a "pink" japanese production. However, as proven by so many Hollywood disappointments, money is not the ingredient for an interesting and thought provoking film, which Naked Blood surely is. Perhaps it is the lack of financial compromise which allows director Sato (like other japanese directors, especially "pink" directors) to present such a complex story (which seems like a simple one, but really isn't), filled with allegories, metaphors, and bizarre but beautiful images which are extreme indeed, but instrumental in the shock to the viewer sought after by the director. I believe that the essence of art is to leave a mark on those contemplating; any kind of mark, not only a pleasant or nice one, and this film really achieves that, by leaving a distinctive impression on the viewer, comparable perhaps to that of "Irreversible" or "Tetsuo", and even that of "Un chien andalou", the Bunuel masterpiece, which also sought to shock and unsettle the spectator. In that sense, Naked Blood is, in its very unusual and bizarre way, a masterpiece.

Let's face it, you're not here for a story.
Yeah there is one, with a deep message about excess.
But you're here for the blood.
And when it rains, boy does it pour.
If you're freaked out by self-mutilation, give this one a pass.
I personally had to pause this movie a number of times to make it through.
It takes a while for the gore to get going,
(there is a story here after all)
But once it does, grab your umbrella.

Here's what it's about:
Eiji infects his mothers 3 patients (all women testing out a new contraceptive)
with the ultimate pain-killer,
A pain-killer that turns pain into mounting pleasure.
This in turn, has disasterous effects.
One pateint is obsessed with eating
Another patient is obsessed with beauty
And the last suffers from extreme insomnia.
(She hooks herself up to a cactus, in order to sleep. Why? I have no idea)

***GORE SPOILER***
In this flick you'll see:
- one woman eat herself alive (hands, eyes, nips, and bajingo)
- another pierce herself to death (and I mean pierce)
- & a guy crawl into a woman's open chest cavity.

Sound up your alley?

MORAL OF THE STORY:
The pain of life cannot be masked by excessive pleasure.
It will consume you.

Naked Blood (Hisayasu Sato, 1995)

I spent the first forty-five minutes of Naked Blood wondering why it had been so highly touted to me. I then spent the final thirty cowering in the corner, crying for my mommy, wondering if that distant, fading light in front of my eyes was actually my sanity. When this flick switches gears, man, it forgets it has brakes at all. Not to say it doesn't have its flaws, some of which are fatal, but gorehounds will likely be extremely impressed with a few scenes here.

The story opens with Eiji (The Great Yokai War's Sadao Abe in his first big-screen appearance), a brilliant high school student who, taking after his scientist parents, has developed what he believes to be the perfect painkiller-- a drug that, instead of introducing new elements into the recipient, pumps up the body's production of endorphins. Can't go wrong with the all-natural, right? Lacking test subjects, however, he decides to try the drug out by slipping a few drops into an experimental contraceptive that his mother, Yuki (Masumi Nako), is in the final stages of testing. He hides across the street and videotapes the test through the window, resolving to observe all three of the suspects afterwards to see if there are any ill effects. One of them, Rika Mikami (Risa Aika), catches him the next day, however, and the two of them end up so besotted with each other that they forget the other two. We, however, are not as easily spared. And side effects? Oh, yeah. There are side effects.

Compared to American horror films, Naked Blood is about as good as you'd expect from the Asian horror market, which has a baseline far above that we're currently locked into in this country (which explains the recent rash of Asian horror film remakes glutting the American market).

This is a Japanese flick like no other. If you were to throw Takashi Miike and David Cronenburgs styles into a blender, youd get something like Naked Blood. Its about a boy who discovers a drug called Myson that turns pain into pleasure. He experiments with the drug on three unsuspecting girls and watches their every move as they find out how good pain feels. Lots of gore and some really great self mutilation scenes involving girls who like to eat their own private parts......very sexy. The story does get confusing though, almost every scene is a metaphor for something else. Honestly I cant say I understand every aspect of the movie, but there is definitely an underlying message about the meaning of life......just havent figured out what it is....but its there. I sure do look forward to watching it again (and again) to try and figure it out though. Highly recommended.
