Japanese New Wave master Yasuzo Masumura's beautiful and terrify tale of erotic horror, from a short story by Edogawa Rampo, is a dazzling and stylish tour de force.
An intense, no-holds-barred exploration of perversion, art and sado-masochism this incredible, visually inventive tale of sex and madness powers to a climax prefiguring Oshima's In the Realm of the Senses, while recalling the works of Cocteau and Franju's Eyes Without A Face.
This controversial and notorious masterpiece is made available in the UK for the first time in it's FULL, UNCUT glory.
