NECROTIC CINEMA'S FIRST POST: KILLER PUSSY-SEXUAL PARASITE

I am not sure that there is a thriving Vagina Dentata sub-genre in horror films, but the film Teeth was released in 2007 and I have yet to see it though have read mostly positive reviews of it. What could possibly be said positive about a film where girls have vaginas with teeth that emasculate men by the truck load is beyond me, but there seems to be a small market for this since Sexual Parasite was released in 2004 and is discussed here under the name it is more commonly known title, Killer Pussy (Kieseichu "Kiraa Pusshii"). I think a suitable term for this type of film would be “splatterotica”. That is, extremely violent and extremely sexually explicit films with the two areas typically overlapping in sometimes uncomfortable ways. No one does this with more gusto and national pride than the current wave of Japanese filmmakers, or more often, “video” makers as this film, like so many others, was shot on video and it looks like it.


The plot is standard horror movie formula from chapter one of the introductory textbook. Explorers in the Amazon (could be any exotic region) bring back a parasitic monster to the so called civilized world. They ignore all the warnings of the local witch doctor of course. The monster is later released by a group of sexually promiscuous teenagers and they are picked off one at a time. And as is typical for new horror films there is no final survivor. That, my friends, is the framework from which this and 90% of modern horror films operate. What makes the newer horror film watchable or unwatchable is the creative originality of the deaths and the size of the teenage girls boobs. The boobs are no problem here and the death sequences are simply gory Japanese style deaths, meaning there are lots of dangling entrails and syrupy looking blood. Of course the parasitic monster is located in the vaginas of the females in the film. There are “creative” camera shots of the beast slithering through the vaginal canal to chump on its next meal, usually the weiner of some doofy Japanese teenage boy.


There is nothing really all that original here and while the title may sound enticing (well, it did to me anyway) the movie is really pretty awful and unless you have a blog where you watch stuff like this just to review I see no reason to go out of your way to see it. I downloaded it from a Rapidshare site and was able to find subtitles online easily though it seems most people are watching it this without subs. How they can follow the plot intricacies without subs is beyond me. I do not set my standards too high when I watch any modern movie with the word “pussy” in the title but I had hoped that there might be some effort here to try and live up to the title. Director/writer Takao Nakano seemed to realize that the title alone who lure in enough curiosity seekers and opted to make a film devoid of plot experimentation, decent camera work, acceptable acting or one genuine surprise.


As is the case with most newer low budget Japanese horror films the emphasis is on gore and things disgusting, such as globs of female sexual secretions that people keep slipping in. Instead of oil wrestling we are treated to scenes of lovely Japanese girls “wrestling” in slimy blood and slimy secretions. One girl is strangled with her own entails in one “shocking” scene. The monster is really phony looking and all the questions a movie like this brings up are not even attempted to be answered. All the better. The film only runs about an hour and it seemed longer. The girls are "chunky" little Asians who don't mind showing off their assets but that is about all I can say for this one. Certainly one for the guys to watch alone and not with your wives or girl friends, unless she is Lorena Bobbit.

  1. Bill, by God man, you really know how to put together an aesthetically beautiful layout. Your customization of this blog is uniquely "you" and I LOVE IT! Great first post! I too have seen this movie here and there and am most interested in checking it out when i have some spare time. I am always up for a good ol' Vagina Dentata film. Aw, but heck, who isn't? All the best and congrats on another fantastic blog. Looking forward to reading more. By the way, I might be inspired by you to get another blogger template - because I'm getting tired of mine. If I can find the right one that is! I saw your link to blogger buster - maybe they've got a good template.

  2. Okay Bill - thanks for the warning. I will stay with what I've got then. I am using both Firefox and Safari to view your blog(s) and they look great on both. You're quite right - when Safari is working well (I have a Mac laptop) I LOVE IT, but Safari can be a pain in the ass too. At any rate - this blog looks GREAT! Thanks for the warning about a new template - always looking forward to reading more of your great posts.

  3. Well, I think what will happen if you do use a new template over a current one is that you will lose all most all of your sidebar stuff. Even if you back it up. And there are installation problems with some of these outside themes that you want to deal with at the beginning, not after you have 100 posts. In any case, if you back it all up all is not lost... theoretically.

    And with this I also ave my first completed post. I will focus the UCafe now on "classic" films and a wider variety of them as well. For example, The Lodger is coming up, Barfly and Factotum an and The Leech Woman and some other interesting morsels. The films I truly love.

  4. Hey Bill. Congrats on an excellent new blog. First of all, it looks great. I really dig the look of it. You started it off with a great blog. This was a very fine write-up on this movie. I loved the shots you posted from it. I've heard of this film, but never seen it before. I'm definitely inclined to check it out now. Keep up the good work. I'm sure you will.
