director: Koji Shiraishi
starring: Eriko Sato · Haruhko Kato · Miki Mizuno
Here's a gory,
scary, effective remake of the 1996 film (KUCHISAKE ONNA [Split-Mouth
Waman] by Teruyoshi Ishii). This slit-mouth woman is a notorious monster
- similar to the American bogeyman - who would kidnap and kill children.
She is a succubus who keeps the lower part of her face hidden behind a
veil. She seduces her victims with her eyes and the words "Am I not
beautiful·" before revealing a horribly distorted mouth and slashing
the victim with a long pair of scissors.
Japanese film; original widescreen format (16:9), uncut (90 min.) version
in DVD encoded for REGION ONE NTSC, playable on any American DVD machine;
in Japanese language with removable English or Spanish subtitles. Extras
include "Making of," Cast interviews and trailers.
