Audience Reviews for Rampo Noir (Rampo jigoku)
Horror Not to Miss List Commentary:Ramp Noir is comprised of four short pieces all based upon the writings of valued horror writer Edogawa Rampo. The first is the most art-house, avant-garde, lacking sound and existing within a world of its own colors and kineticism. The next is an astoundingly creepy detective horror with a superb mythical-meets post-modern/surreal ending. The third is one of the most beautiful disgusting movies you'll ever see, with much astute - no, plain genius - subtext. The final piece feels like a good end, as it has the least ambiguous conclusion and the most gratuitous beautifully rendered decay and madness. Everyone should see this so that they can know what proper modern horror film is supposed to be."So Fucked Up" highlight:wife simultaneously copulates with and tortures her crippled mute husband, who sort of likes it
Highly watchable, and at times disturbing, Edogawa Rampo anthology film. All the stories were great, in fact I can't think of anything by Rampo I've read or any movie adaptation I've seen that I haven't really enjoyed (yes, that includes Blind Beast vs. Killer Dwarf). This one is surreal, dark, mysterious with fascinating and disturbed characters doing terrible things. Well worth searching for. Now why the hell have I not seen Blind Beast yet?
Probably among the most weirdest, sickest films I've seen to date. Laughs are to be had, I suppose, but prepare your vomit bags as there are some pretty disturbing, repulsive scenes in this movie. A bunch of seperate, weird stories are told, including Mars Canal, Mirror Hell, Caterpillar and Crawling Bugs. If those titles aren't peculiar enough--just wait and see what unfolds in each of them. Not for the slightest faint of heart. This film is avant-garde hell.
