Audience Reviews for The Man Behind the Scissors
A well acted and effectively directed psychological suspense film. The first third or so of the film is slow moving despite beginning with a killing but the pace picks up and the suspense builds as the story continues. It apparently is a cultural difference but I find the depiction in Japanese film and anime of male reactions to love and beautiful women very hard to believe. Are Japanese men really typically as inept with women as I was with girls when I was in my early teens? Aside from annoyance at that aspect of the romantic subplot, I found the story quite interesting and its morally ambiguous ending quite enjoyable. This is a movie that requires you to watch closely and not assume you understand what is really happening. Quite fascinating.
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...
