In 18th century Japan, Lord Sodom's bride to be is killed by voodoo so he accuses and kills two of his maids who curse him and his family before checking out. Lord Sodom's eyes then vanish and he goes mad and butchers his wedding guests.
Jump to 300 years later and Sodom's descendents are still hexed, more brides die and the now blind and vampiric Lord possesses his last male heir and even more people die. Further time skips, reality twists, reincarnated corpses, flashbacks and a few dreams (some on obvious theatre sets) all go to make a movie that wanders far from reality in a daze of over symbolic images flat enough to be manga comic panels.
Fate, heaven and hell all bite the plot and will hardly be tolerated by casual viewers. Then again, even if you love no budget asian crazyness, you'll still have a hard time liking the purposely terrible FX and goofy acting. Not to mention Rena Komine's 'spirit hunter' Mauser gun that can fire 100,000's of bullets and the Dr Mabuse-esque crime antics of Sodom (Takashi Urai) and his henchmen.
If ye must watch it, see it for the strawberry soaked finale and the scene where a man has his right testicle crushed in a bureau drawer.... fucking ouch! The talented Takashi wrote the script for Ring (97).
