Crazy, Campy Fun

Karaoke Terror. Just like the title suggests... nuts! Based in Japan, a young man murders a middle-aged woman who refuses him carnal knowledge. Her five divorced, middle-aged friends seek revenge, which ignites a feud with his five friends. The anty is upped with each vengeful, retaliatory strike. Understand that this film is a black comedy that never takes itself seriously and if you try and take the film seriously, you won't enjoy it. It does offer interesting commentary on the dullness of middle-age, friendship loyalty, and the way in which folks communicate, however, the complete package is nothing more than a dizzying, wild ride. It is not meant to be some profound demonstration. At least, to take it so would be ridiculous.

A brilliantly executed escalation of violence and revenge.

Love it or hate it, this movie will definitely have an impact. It starts with a gratuitous murder that triggers a downward spiral of revenge between two rival factions: middle-aged women known as "The Midoris" and a group of young slackers. With each gruesome murder comes a slightly more powerful retaliation, which leads to the spectacular finale. Characters are deep and well thought out. Most of them being completely insane. Yoshio Harada (Gessai the Assassins' Sensei from Azumi) is hilarious as a petty arms dealer with a delusional fixation on what is the greatest plague in human history and a dubious definition of a "noble cause". You will either laugh yourself silly or be utterly disturbed. You shouldn't miss it either way.

IT'S A SAD HAPPY SONG

This is a good dark comedy, some of which actually translates well, of two feuding Showa Karaoke groups. One group consists of young males. Sugako initiates the feud by killing a member of the woman's group who refused his sexual advances. The "middle aged" women call themselves "Hemmi" which appears to be a form of Hemi or half since they are all divorced. The method of killing escalates with each kill. This would make a great American film. Warning: The DVD back cover has plot spoilers in that it shows the first three kills. Guide: F-bomb, nudity, sexual groping.
