Steve's Movie Review Of The Day: Rapeman

Rapeman aka Ô Edo Rapeman
Rapeman (1996)
Directed by Takao Nagaishi

Steve's Review

Only Japan would do this. If you've become desensitized to violence (and who hasn't?) then it's time to become desensitized to rape. The Rapeman Service is a rape-for-hire business in Japan that works for those who can not find justice otherwise. For a simple retainer, the Rapeman will 'right wrongs through penetration'. Of course, being raped by the Rapeman is such an honor, one wonders if it even qualifies as rape as most 'targets' can only beg to see more of our hero's 'super powers'. This movie is so wrong, it's gotta be right. You'll laugh at the rape, feel guilty, then watch some more. God bless all that is Japan!


**Bonus Steve's Movie Review Of The Day: Tomie**

Tomie (1999)
Directed by Ataru Oikawa

If The Ring was the Japanese 'Scream', then this is the Japanese 'Urban Legend'. Underrated flick features title character being continuously murdered then subsequently resurrected. Apparently, girl is so hot, she'll cause guys to kill each other, themselves and/or her. This has been happening over and over for hundreds of years. One really has to bring into question the Japanese ability to solve murders when you hear that. Wildy ambiguous ending!

  1. I've always wanted to catch Rapeman. I definitely will be now, once I find a copy of course!

  2. Rapeman?? sounds like a movie not apt to everyone.
