< Flower and Snake: Sketch of Hell
  • Hmm... schools girls with axes. That’s a pink film element that only a very special director could ruin. The honor goes to genre specialist Shogoro Nishimura, who skillfully turns the film into crap. No surprises quality wise here, really. The start is boring, the slighty interesting but badly executed part follows (the axes are just one brief scene), and the the remaining 50 minutes is your usual Oniroku Dan / Nikkatsu sm entertainment. I guess this, too, will find its audience. Jigoku hen is the first part in the 80s Flower and Snake series (preceeded by Masaru Konuma’s 1974 foul classic). --HungFist
