The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Rampo Noir (2005)

AKA: Ranpo jigoku

Directors: Akio JIssiji, Atusushi Kaneko, Hisayasu Sato, Suguru Takeuchi









Premise:
Four tales about love and obsession taken from the stories of  Edogowa Rampo

My Take:
Kind of a mixed bag for me as three of the segments were merely watchable and little confusing to follow.
But the segment called "Catepillar" blew me away. It's about a man who has no arms or legs and the wickedly unconventional relationship with his wife. She beats him and hides him away from the world because of his hideousness. It rides an interesting line between deep love and resentment.

Rating: In the middle
