Philosophy of a Knife (Trailer)

There's a debate on whether or not Philosophy of a Knife is worth the time, money and effort to watch what the horror underground is calling the first "Goreumentary". Though many would say Men Behind the Sun is the first (a film that shocked the fuck out of me) that movie was made 20 years ago and you figured somebody would take the goreumentary a little further.

That's where Andrey Iskanov comes in.

The Russian director of Nails and Visions of Suffering has decided to make a documentary about Japanese Unit 731, where a group of Japanese scientists performed biological medical experiments on Russian prisoners.

Here be the plot from Unearthed Films who produced the film with Iskanov.

The true history of Japanese Unit 731, from it's beginnings in the 1930's to it's demise in 1945, and the subsequent trials in Khabarovsk, USSR, of many of the Japanese doctors from Unit 731. The facts are told, and previously unknown evidence is revealed by an eyewitness to these events, former doctor and military translator, Anatoly Protasov. Part documentary and part feature, the story is shown from the perspective of a young Japanese nurse who witnessed many of horrors, and a young Japanese officer who is torn between his sincere convictions that he is serving the greater purpose, and the deep sympathy he feels for an imprisoned Russian girl. His life is a living hell as he's compelled to carry out atrocious experiments on the other prisoners, using them as guinea pigs in this shocking tale of mankind's barbarity. Philosophy of a knife is truly one of the most violent, brutal and harrowing movies ever made.

The gripes come in that's its 4.....yes FUCKIN 4 HOURS LONG!!!!

And that "starved" prisoners all look like Anna Kournikova. From what I've read in reviews and comments, the torture and gore are in peak form and are disturbing as fuck.

Hmmmm. We've got pros and we got cons. The DVD came out on July 8th and is available via Unearthed Films.

Many fucked ups scenes are up on YouTube. Check out the trailer below and decide if you're in or out.

  1. Wow... that looks absolutely disgusting. I'd be interested in seeing it, if it wasn't 4 hours long. That's too long even for a Scorsese film, let alone a Russian torture flick. Too much gore, even for my sick tastes.
