Movie Info

A pair of sadistic killers finds their bloody game turned against them in director Toshiharu Ikeda's screen adaptation of Masayuki Shuno's novel of the same name. Methodical madman Yasunaga (Etsushi Toyokawa) and his self-destructive sidekick, Chinatsu (Kumiko Aso), have been carving up schoolgirls all across Tokyo, but when a mysterious stranger beats them to their next intended victim, they are unexpectedly called in as witnesses by the police. As the murderous duo attempts to uncover the identity of a mysterious older man whom they had seen with their intended victim just moments before the murder, they are forced to bluff their way through a series of intense interviews with police investigator Isone and his deskbound superior Horinouchi. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Man Behind the Scissors

  • Sep 23, 2008
    Low budget, poorly made japanese slasher film...not gory, scary or of any redeeming value, unless you are having trouble falling asleep. The sqwaking saxophone music used to create mood is just awful...definitely a b-grade movie with c-grade actors (I am being generous) and a d-grade story...
