    Just bought the Hong Kong import DVD of this movie - and boy did I get more than I
    bargained for...
    ********SLIGHT SPOLIERS BELOW**********
    The first half of the film is a playful delight - a screenwriter’s wife dies, and the writer
    morns for a long time, never dating. Eventually, his son talks him into meeting other
    women, but he feels that he doesn’t really mix in the right circles to find his ideal
    His friend, also involved in movies, decides to hold an audition, not for his new movie,
    but for his friend, the writer - together they view loads of women, under the pretext of
    a roll in a fake film.....
    Only read below if you don’t wanna know about the amazing climax....
    After the selection of the girl, the film slowly goes nuts!!!!!! Massive jumps - bodies in
    sacks, tongues nailed to floors, acupuncture in eyeballs, amputations by cheesewire,
    dreams within dreams within flashbacks within dreams......this film rocks!!!!
    The last 15 minutes are some of the most intense scenes that I have ever seen!!
    “Kiri Kiri Kiri”.... eeehhh!!!
    *********END SPOILERS********
    It has the same sort of uneasy feeling and restraint as Ring 1 & 2, but with far, far, far
    more unpleasant bits in....
    It’s out now region 3, but Tartan are releasing a Region 2, enhanced spec edition next
    month in the UK.

    I haven't even heard of this film. But always looking for a captivating horror flick, I will check this out per your recommendation. For me, I love the smart, intense, psychological horror flicks. Sure there's a time and place for gorefest but it's more difficult to find a more polished product.....but of course a certain amount of gore is necessary [​IMG]
    Thanks for the tip!!!!!
    DTS Laser Disc. Size Does Matter
