Suicide Club (2001) Review:

Suicide Club is the first horror by the great Japanese director Shion Sono, who delivered other great horror afterwards, including the surprisingly great Exte: Hair Extension; Noriko’s Dinner Table as well as the recent Coldfish.

This movie starts with an absolutely breathtaking opening scene (you can actually watch it in our Cult Scene Series here). It takes the form of a thriller, following the investigation of a group of cops in Japan as the country is victim of an ever-growing series of mass suicide. But behind that simplistic aspect is hidden a deep critic of the Japanese society and its tendency to suicide. The film is really captivating and will take you by surprise many times. The ending is really hard to understand, and may sounds like nonsense to most at first. After watching it, I invite you to read the explanation on the internet and the deep meaning of that film will make more sense – only then will you truly appreciate that movie – you might even consider giving it a second watch afterwards.

Aside from its brainy aspectSuicide Club delivers its dose of entertainment, with some good suspense, a good amount of gore and some memorable psychedelic scenes. A great film not to be missed!
