I watched this today. I agree with Mondo Digital's bit about how the whole movie is worth it just for the the final couple minutes. The end is pretty great, but I found it only okay otherwise. There are a lot of scenes that serve no purpose that I just found kind of irritating. The brutally tedious 6 minute long opening scene with a guy haggling to see the masseuse naked in the standard version comes to mind. I HATED this movie for the first 6 minutes. It gets better after that, though there is another scene I kinda hated later where a male client strips down to a purple ballet uniform and dances around for a few minutes for no reason.

Overall worth a watch for the amazing finale, fun car chase and a few shocking murder scenes. I would recommend skipping the standard version which loses the opening titty haggling scene and watching the re-release version instead.

I'll get a more detailed review done soon.

If anyone is sick of my shameless self promotion let me know, I'm not sure if there are rules against self linking here or not.

Thanks for posting the review, I'd welcome more on here!

I don't believe there's any such rule about that here...

Like others have said, please continue posting them. I like the style of your writing and I like that it's to the point, not overly long like some other reviews. You also talk about the stuff I want to know about, how are the kills, what are some of the highlight scenes, ect. instead of going through the whole plot. Keep em coming!

My thoughts on the film for anyone who's interested.

http://www.cannibalreviews.com/2013/...r-murders.html

Yeah, as some reviews said it can be a bit tedious in some scenes, there is some cool stuff in the movie and I did find myself enjoying a bit of it. The blu-ray is handled very well, VS definitely gave this film a great treatment.

Nice review Chris, thanks for posting it

Here's my new review for Anatomy of a Psycho and The Lonely Sex:
http://the-manchester-morgue.blogspo...natomy-of.html

I think I've got Anatomy of a Psycho on a couple of 50 Horror movie packs. Couldn't be further from a horror film, but entertaining enough for what it is. I still need to watch their Suckers/Love Garden disc, but those both seem a bit sexploitation-ey, which is not something I'm particularly into.
