Tokyo Gore Police (2008) Review:

Tokyo Gore Police is a very unique experience, especially if you are not familiar with the Japanese splatter genre (Meatball Machine, The Machine Girl, etc.). It’s also the best way to start to know this very particular horror sub-genre. The movie is definitely centered around the gore and is not a movie for everyone. But if you enjoyed B-movies like Planet Terror, you are in for a treat. Personally, I love that movie so much that it stands in my Top 20 horror ever!

The film is really stylish, in a Japanese style, and looks like a manga or video game. Thereee are lots of sexy shots, lots of great costumes…and of course, awesome monsters and over-the-top gore. But this not even the best thing about it, the story is also awesome. The plot is filled with great science-fiction concepts such as “the engineers”, a race of modified humans who regenerate parts of their bodies into deadly weapons. This may sound stupid, but it gives rise to lots of awesome scenes and it is the perfect pretext for the avalanche of blood, gruesomeness and disturbing ideas that the film delivers.

Tokyo Gore Police doesn’t take itself seriously and is truly funny too. Some moments, such as TV ads and the propaganda, are just hilarious, some typical b-movie humor. Thereee is also the awesome S&M party with its grotesque creature. As if that wasn’t enough, the music is awesome too, and fit well with the arty look of the film. A masterpiece of Japanese cinema!

PS: I’ll send a free t-shirt to anyone who can find me the soundtrack.
