HORNY HOUSE OF HORROR (2010) Review


Directed by: Jun Tsugita
Starring: Asami, Saori Hara, Yûya Ishikawa

Jun Tsugita is better known for being a writer. He worked on MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD, DEAD SUSHI and TOMIE: UNLIMITED among others. As a director this is his first real feature and since I loved MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD I thought I'd check it out. Much like the last film I reviewed (BIG TITS ZOMBIE) this movie's title gives you a good idea of what you should expect to see over its 75 minute running time.


As you may expect the plot isn't exactly the film's strong point but I'll lay it out for you anyway. Three friends spot a new massage parlor / brothel and upon seeing just how cheap it is they decide to give it a try. One of the trio Nakatsu (Ishikawa) is reluctant because he is about to get married but eventually his pals talk him into it. Upon entering the trio are presented with three female asses pushed through some cut-out holes in a wall. After giving the asses a good poke and prod they get to choose which one they want. While his two friends are taken to their rooms Nakatsu is left waiting for his girl to fetch him. But instead of moans of pleasure coming from his friends he hears bloodcurdling screams and realizes that this brothel isn't what it seems.


So yeah it's about a brothel where the girls brutally tear off their clients' penises. There's some pretty pointless subplot about one of the girls Nagisa (Hara) who is 'sick of the taste of blood' and Nakatsu's friends who accuse him of quitting the baseball team because he's completely pussy-whipped but more importantly there are boobs and blood. The three working girls are all sexy and aggressive and they all strip down and give the camera plenty of flesh to film before they rid their clients of their man-bits.


The effects supervisor here is Yoshihiro Nishimura (TOKYO GORE POLICE, THE MACHINE GIRL) so of course there is a lot of blood spraying all over the place although in terms of other digital effects he seems to have toned it down from his usual way over the top style. And this is the film's trademark. Despite the fact that it's about prostitutes who mutilate mens' genitals the movie really doesn't push the envelope or break any new ground when it comes to perversion and bad taste. If you've seen any other films Nishimura has worked on or Tsugita has scripted then you will probably be disappointed with this effort. But I won't deny that the film is entertaining and there are actually a few laugh out loud moments to be had here. It's not a film I think I'd watch again any time soon though. Four disembodied penises out of ten.
