Recent events in the news serve to remind us what a shitty sick fucked-up world we really live in. I mean what could possess people to kill themselves committing such mass destruction and death. Must have been some government or religious involvement is my guess, but in any case, I'm sure there is more to come, so on to the MOVIE OF THE WEEK.
And in keeping with this spirit, I've picked on of the sickest flicks I've ever seen. I mean this flick is so fucked-up my girlfriend won't even let me play it while she is in the house (wait 'till she finds I now have the sequel). This weeks flick is:
MEN BEHIND THE SUN
'Schindlers List', forget about it. This movie makes that movie look like something from the Children's Televison Workshop. You want to see just how far goverments and armies unchecked can go in atrocities, this flick shows it all. Now if you are thinking, "cool, sick gory fun Guinea Pig stuff", you might just be in for a shock. This flick has a documentary feel to it and some of the most atrocious gore I've ever seen, but this shit really happened (and it is still happening and probably will happen in the future). That and the fact it has some real type footage, like a cat tossed in with about 1000 starving rats, gives it a very disturbing feel.
The story revolves around some boys in the Jappanese Military Youth Movement, who are sent to the Japanese 751 Squadron's experimental facility during WWII. At this facility they experiment with chemical and biological weapons as well as conduct some other fucked up experiments like live disection and testing (and surpassing)the limits of human endurance. They use a bunch of prisoners, mostly Chinese and Malay, which they call Muruta (meaning something like 'another log for the fire).
So what kind of serious fucked-up stuff am I gonna see if I watch this, you might ask?
Well, some of the highlights include:
-the aformentioned cat tossed to the hungery rats (as much as I hate cats, I hate rats more)
-peoples hands frozen solid then either smashed like glass, or rapidly thawed in hot water and the skin and muscle falling off.
-a dude in a decompression chamber pressurized until his intestines shoot out his ass
-a still alive autopsy
-a baby buried in the snow alive
-some good beatings
Hell if it is horrible, it in this flick. And I doubt you will ever find it at a Blockbuster (but it might be fun to stick a copy on the shelf). I have two versions of it, one dubbed to English and one subtitled (which I got from GOREHOUND VIDEO). I understand it was just released on DVD too.
So give it a watch if you want something a little disturbing to make you think, and who knows, one day soon you may even get to live it.
