Movie Info

A wheelchair-bound boy (Hirohito Honda) is tormented by a ghostly young mute girl (Naoko Mori) and her sadistic grandmother (Yoshiko Shiraishi) in this terrifying cult horror film from director Shugo Fujii. Bereft of his mother, ignored by his father and brother, and nearly smothered to death by his overprotective older sister, Yasu spends most of his days bound to his wheelchair in the confines of his family's suffocating home. When young Yuki and her seemingly harmless grandmother, Chiyo, mysteriously appear at the door and move in to Yasu's home, his suspicions about them fall on deaf ears. Tortured nightly both mentally and physically by the deadly duo, Yasu desperately tries to convince his family of Yuki and Chiyo's evil intentions before their horrific reign of terror consumes them all.

Audience Reviews for Living Hell: A Japanese Chainsaw Massacre


This made for a terrific watch! Suffer through the subtitles - it is well worth it. The film effectively created a very eerie atmosphere. There was just no telling what might happen next. What an unlikely pair of murderers! Brilliant! The plot of the movie was fairly well developed. Very nice balance of gore and story. Additionally, I felt quite satisfied by the ending of the film.
