REVIEW WRITTEN BY: CHRIS BOUCHIE.

Flower of Flesh And Blood is one of the most important gore films in the history of cinema. That's a bold statement, but I stand by it. As violent as it is bizarre, Hideshi Hino weaves the brutal tale of a pair of torturous kidnappers who stalk the streets at night, abducting young women only to drug and mutilate them before adding their dismembered bodies to a perverse collection.

Starring Hiroshi Tamura as the antagonist, a decrepit madman with rotten teeth, a samurai helmet, and a slew of blades and torture devices. Injecting women with an unknown serum that turns their pain to pleasure, Tamura systematically hacks his victim to pieces for the camera. Way ahead of its time, Flower Of Flesh And Blood features some of the most realistic fx I've ever seen and at over thirty years old it still holds its ground among three decades of advances in special effects.
