Mega Popular 'Midnight Movie' Extravaganza
Original Japanese Title: CHI WO SU UCHI
director: Hirohisa Sasaki
starring: Aimi Nakamura · Sadao Abe · Hitomi Miwa · Hiroshi Abe
named Misato is about to be executed for the murder of her daughter.
The accused woman claims that she's innocent - that her daughter was
kidnapped - while her husband says they never had a daughter at all.
Misato tells her story to a nun, causing the police to investigate further.
They enlist help from the FBI [who seem more obsessed with eating Jell-O
than solving mysteries] and everyone starts to think Misato might be
reincarnated from a spider. Or, even more bizarre, an alien from outer
Sasaki worked as an assistant director and scriptwriter for a decade,
mostly on TV projects for the Fuji Television Network. His opportunity
to sit in the director's chair came in 2000 when he was tapped to helm
a script by Hiroshi Takahashi, the writer of numerous RING
films. Sasaki was given a considerable amount of freedom with Takahashi's
story which resulted in CRAZY
LIPS, a controversial non-mainstream cult/horror film. Reportedly,
the writer was so happy with the result that he immediately gave another
script to the director. That one became this motion picture. The studio
[wisely] chose to avoid a wide release for GORE FROM
OUTER SPACE, instead marketing it as a 'genre' cult film. As
such, GORE set a new record for the largest midnight
audience ever (to this day) at the legendary Shinjuku Theater. In Japan,
this film is considered its Rocky Horror Picture Show.
