The Blu-ray is released by Eureka Entertainment, and is a typically strong package. This is a new film (only recently opening in Japanese theatres), and so the transfer is very strong on the disc. The image is sharp as you'd expect, and the sound, though only in stereo as opposed to surround sound, is clear and works well, especially when the classic soundtrack pumps through. The film is obviously in Japanese, with optional English subtitles.Read more ›
And all I can say is WOW.
This film truly blew me away. It's horrifying in a highly Lynchian/Cronenberg kind of way. It doesn't involve spirits or demons or killers or anything, but it IS classed as a horror film. And for good reason.
It's about physical, emotional and psychological transformation in the most drastic way possible. The lead performance by Miki Mizuno just blew me away.
It's not particularly gory, but the grimness of the tone and how innocent beings can transform into something hideously dark and perverse is what makes it so realistic. I've seen this kind of thing happen myself. In many ways, Kazuko Yoshida (played with eye opening brilliance by Miki) is very much like Twin Peak's Laura Palmer, pretty close to Mulholland Drive's Naomi Watts, but not quite as close to the outstanding brilliance of Laura Dern in Inland Empire (in terms of performance).
GIVE THIS WOMAN AN AWARD!
Her transformation of being a highly sweet and loyal wife to something quite disturbing and uncomfortable to watch is nothing short of breath taking.
If your interested in these horror films about 'a woman in trouble' involving romance and dramatic downward spirals, this is an absolute MUST SEE drama/horror movie.
I honestly can't understand the negative reviews here, as a fan of 'woman in trouble' horror films this is the best I've seen in YEARS.
A 10/10 masterpiece.

As a fan of Sono I was really disappointed by this one and struggled to get through it to be honest. Would't recommend it unfortunately.Published 8 months ago by Evan
Usual sono styled film. Has a mixture of everything. But worth a watch.Published 14 months ago by Steve Mellor
Neither too pornographic nor horrific (unlike some movies from Japan). This was actually quite a thought provoking film and I am pleased I bought it.Published 18 months ago by DK
This film is about a man that had everything in the woman that he married but could not see what he had. Psychologically brilliant and very well acted.Published on 17 Aug. 2013 by Trythisitisgood
Uneven acting and pacing, along with occasionally laughable dialogue sadly bring down Sion Sono's twisted sexual liberation picture. Read morePublished on 3 Jan. 2013 by jecomans
