Cinema gore or splatter, is defined by Wikipedia, “a cinematic subgenre, usually related to horror movies, based on the extreme realism of special effects, that describe the splatter of blood ( “to splat”, from which “splatter”) or tearing of the human bodies, resulting in leakage of entrails. Often by the realism it has gone to exaggeration, for the purpose of disgust or even to make people laugh the spectators”. In the 80s some directors have attempted to use the gore critically, to show the weakness of the human body especially in a time where physical perfection and hedonism were considered symbols of social climbing. Moreover, images and techniques “gore” has always been part Japanese visual imagery, from manga to jidaigeki. Although I have not fully understood the distinction between “realism” and “exaggeration” about the show spilling guts, goes It found that Nishimura and Iguchi, in particular, are set as “capiscuola” of a new strand of Japanese gore, where the exaggeration is used in pure aesthetic key as a tool for a visual delirium. It is no coincidence that Nishimura, the “genius” of the group, has participated in more than 50 films as a makeup artist and visual effects supervisor, including several of Sono Shion movie, and then get to “sign” things like Toukyou zankoku keisatsu ( Tokyo Gore Police) or Kyuuketsu Shoujo Shoujo tai Furanken (Vampire Girl Versus Frankenstein Girl). Iguchi instead comes from many royal, including Kataude machine garu (The Machine Girl) and RoboGeisha. Framed so the sociological-movie phenomenon, the film, however, there is little to say except that it is so boring to anyone who can read and write. Like maybe adolescents of all ages, judging by the data scores by the Japanese public.
