Description

If you think the worst that can come of visiting the local rub-and-tug massage parlour is a bit of a rash or persistent virus, well, writer-director Jun Tsugita is here to show you the error of your ways with HORNY HOUSE OF HORROR. Nakazu, Uno and Toshida are lifelong friends, middle-aged men who have played on an amateur baseball team together for years, purely as an excuse to get together and drink on a regular basis. But it’s all coming to an end, the trio is breaking up. Nakazu has gone and gotten himself engaged, the first of the three confirmed bachelors to head down the road to matrimony, and the wife-to-be does not approve of his friends. Tonight’s the end, the final game before Uno and Toshida are left in the past. And so when the trio wanders past the Shogun, a sex parlour promising a happy ending at an incredibly low price, his two friends bully Nakazu into partaking. Call it an impromptu bachelor party, but this one is going to end in blood. Because the Shogun, you see, is the massage parlour from hell. The massage girls are beautiful, yes, but vicious, and it will be a miracle if any of the three escape alive, never mind intact.

A longtime collaborator with MACHINE GIRL director Noboru Iguchi — his writing credits include the Iguchi-directed TOMIE UNLIMITED, MUTANT GIRLS SQUAD and THE ANCIENT DOGOO GIRL — Jun Tsugita makes his directorial debut with HORNY HOUSE OF HORROR and proves that he is a force to be reckoned with in the ongoing wave of Japanese cult splatter. Hysterically funny, gleefully transgressive and absolutely drenched in blood, HORNY HOUSE OF HORROR spreads body parts and breasts across the screen as Tsugita wrings every possible gag out of his premise and tiny budget. Providing the breasts are AV girls Mint Suzuki, Saori Hara and frequent Iguchi star Asami. Providing the sanguinary effects is TOKYO GORE POLICE director Yoshihiro Nishimura. But keeping things popping at a rollicking pace as he provokes his audience to revulsion and laughter — but mostly laughter — is Tsugita. Blood and breasts will get you only so far in a splatter-exploitation film and Tsugita proves he’s got more than that. He’s got talent and lots of it. He is a name you will be hearing much, much more from in the future.
