AKA: Kichiku: Banquet of the Beasts
Directed by: Kazuyoshi Kumakiri

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.

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??

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!)
