No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA: Kichiku: Banquet of the Beasts
Directed by: Kazuyoshi Kumakiri
Starring: Sumiko Mikami (Masami)
Country: Japan
Language: Japanese (English subtitles)
Runtime: 01:47:15
Genres: Gore-Gruesome-Splatter, Violence against Men, Sexual-Violence against Women, Relationships with Animals, Torture, Self-Harm, Based on a True Story

Plot – Spoilers:
Kichiku is loosely based on the Asama-Sanso incident. A revolutionary group in ’70s Japan are awaiting the release of their leader from jail. Meanwhile, his oversexed girlfriend Masami has taken over leadership and turned the gang’s focus towards petty crimes. Slowly, Masami begins to lose her mind and control over the group’s members with gory consequences.

Kichiku sacrifices substance for great style and rumbles along until about the halfway mark, where the only female character in the movie fellates the head of a stuffed bird. From hereon, there are impressive scenes including one that stars the remnants of a man’s head that’s just been blown the fuck away.

    Excellent! Thanks for adding this rare gorefest! I’ve suggested it a few times but I’m certain I wasn’t the only one. This one had to be hard as fuck to come by! Anyway, thanks again (for this as well as all the other great stuff you offer!)

    Thanks a ton for the new movie admins, never even knew of this one!

    An interesting watch to say the least. The film itself didn’t make me feel anything, emotion-wise, so I believe much of the allegories (political?) were lost on me. Awesome sfx and cinematography tho. A unique film indeed.

    Also, towards the end of the film, when the leader chic was putting on the makeup, before her little geisha dance, wtf was she eating??

      I still can’t believe they got it! I don’t know if I was the first or only viewer of effedup to suggest it, but I think I probably bugged them for it the most! They deserve a lot of credit for filling all of the tall orders they fill & where rarity is concerned, this order is about the tallest!

        A good recommendation indeed, friend! It’s not often I find a feature-length film in this category I’ve never, ever heard about at all. Props

        SHOCKED to read that this was a student film. Excellently made for what it was.

        I had looked thru all of the imdb comments and still CANNOT find out what the chic was eating/ licking towards the end of the film, when she was putting on the makeup. Has been bugging me a lot more than it should, lol. Any ideas?

          Hey there! She wasn’t really eating, but rather blackening her teeth with an unknown substance. It used to be a common practice in Japan, and today it’s still practiced in kabuki theater. The practice is kalled “ohaguro”, and it was very common for geisha to do it when applying makeup (usually with a mix of a type of oxidized element, vinegar and tea or seed powder, although today ink mixed with wax is used instead). There’s no way of knowing exactly what she used in the movie, though.

            THANK U LYCORIS!?
            I feel kinda like a moron now for not putting two n two together, because I remember learning that about geisha’s and old eastern traditions a while back. I think they did a form of it to preserve their teeth from rot as well.

            Reminds me of a while back, a co-worker of ours who had lived in Thailand for a while brought in these betel nut things for us to try. He had told us they got u buzzed af, which they really do, and me and my buddy, us being the partiers (aka loved drugs), we had really wanted to try em when he told us a story about em. They were these big nuts u cracked in half and wrapped in these super tough leaves w a lime paste deal (like powdered rock almost, was gritty) and then chewed on. Thing is, our co-worker neglected to mention they stain your spit and *everything* it touches a bright af red/orange, especially including ur teeth. Our teeth after were solid red from em! So for the rest of the day, we were trying to avoid all our other co-workers, meetings, conversations, etc, and ESPECIALLY our bosses, because a couple ppl noticed right off the bat and were asking us very seriously what the fuck we had done. This was an engineering firm, so not many ppl had a real sense of humor, if any, only us and a handful of others sadly. And of course, us being dumbasses, we had chewed em on our lunch break at 11:30 in the morning, so it made for a intense rest of the day trying to dodge ppl. Left my teeth stained for the rest of the day, and off color the next, despite brushing. It also left the white concrete wall of the building outside where we were spitting onto looking like a fukn murder scene for the next couple months of winter, LMFAO. Those betel nuts were awesome tho, I’d try em again if I could, got ya super buzzed too, felt like u just had about a packs worth of nicotine from cigs at once!

            Anyhoo, ur black teeth geisha explanation reminded me of our red vampire teeth from those damn things, lol. Thanks again for letting me know tho, I appreciate it;)
