A female reporter researching underground sex films stumbles across a snuff film, and her further investigation causes the film makers to take action against her.
Daisuke Yamanouchi’s “Mu Zan E” is about a young journalist, who is searching for snuff movies. The film shows us a snuff/porn making underground industry ala “Last House on Dead End Street” or “Tesis”. It’s extremely grim and gory and it pulls no punches with its sheer nastiness. There are some incredibly revolting scenes of gore and sexual violence, so fans of Japanese pinku eiga sickies won’t be disappointed. It seems to me that Japanese culture is loaded with sadism and bloodletting and this carries over into the realms of cinema and literature. Anyway, if you’re a fan of the “Guinea Pig” series or “Cannibal Holocaust” you can’t miss this one. However if you’re squeamish don’t watch it!
