5.0 out of 5 stars A Mutation Of Early Cronenberg, 18 Jan 2010
This review is from: Organ [1996] [DVD] (DVD)
Organ is the very impressive, dark and disturbing directorial debut from Kei Fujiwara (co-star of Tetsuo: Iron Man). The ferocious one-eyed Yoko (Fujiwara) is the leader of a gang responsible for the dismembering of human body parts in order (or should that be - to order) to sell them onto their hungry black market clientele... and business is booming. Two cops raid the slaughterhouse in a botched operation that results in one officer being kidnapped and used by Yoko's psychosexual lunatic brother for his weird greenhouse experiments and the other cop loses his mind, family as well as his job. The gang of deviant organ dealers take up residence at a school and continue to operate whilst the mental ex-cop searches for his partner; who is being kept alive by virgin blood from murdered school girls.

This gooey thriller is packed with perverse imagery culminating into a grotesque stew of blood and pus that can be best described as a mutation of early Cronenberg's surreal body horror. Fujiwara displays blood and violence much like an artist would use brush and paint. The grainy vision and retro stylistics chosen by Fujiwara in this creepy, surrealistic flick has the appearance of a late '70's grindhouse feature (the master video has quite possibly been baked by the sun) shot with the finesse of an artistic auteur who clearly has a lot to offer an audience with an acquired taste for all things bizarre. This is a low budget masterpiece guaranteed to satisfy the thirst of anyone nostalgic for early Cronenberg-esque cinema.
