“Niku Daruma”, or as it is more commonly known outside of Japan, “Psycho: The Snuff Reels”, is arguably one of the most notorious films to come out of the latest wave of hardcore Japanese exploitation films. The film follows the "faux snuff film" formula that was popularized in Japan by the “Guinea Pig” films in the mid to late 80's.

Since the entire film is in Japanese with no subtitles, I cannot accurately describe to you what exactly is going on in the film, but as anyone who has ever seen a film in the faux snuff sub-genre knows, plot and dialogue have little to no importance.

Niku Daruma (Psycho: The Snuff Reels) - "Previous the Festivities"

I'll be honest; the majority of this film is pretty boring.  We start things off with a couple of guys who are casting women to be in their homemade porno. They track down a lady, interview her, fuck her, stick a pink dildo in her ass, and eat some sushi (typical every day bullshit). The REAL fun starts about 40 minutes into the film. As the young actress goes into to bathroom, we see a hidden camera type shot where one of the cameramen follows her in, and knocks her out with a bat. This is where the shit really hits the fan.

While one man has sex with the woman once again, another man helps out by sawing her foot off. Suddenly, someone runs to the kitchen to grab what appears to be a potato peeler, and gets to work on her tongue. Now, I've seen a lot of shit in my day, but I kid you not, this tongue mutilation scene is one of, if not THE most realistic looking effects I've ever seen. They continue torturing the "doll of flesh" by cutting her stomach open, pulling out her intestines, and fucking the wound. As if that weren't enough, we are treated to a very weird blood/semen cumshot, after which the actor is quickly killed by the director (I guess he didn’t feel he was right for the part!) You have to admire someone that is willing to literally have sex with fake blood and organs just so he can add a little extra spice to an already disturbing film. After hacking the rest of her limbs off, they finally put her out of her misery, violently with a machete to the face. The film ends as the director gets on his cell phone, presumably setting things up for his next film.

Niku Daruma (Psycho: The Snuff Reels) - "Cat Got Yer Tongue?"

What “Niku Daruma” lacks in plot and content, it sure as hell makes up for in gore and pure shock value. The special effects by Mr. Anaru are some of the most impressive I have seen in a long time. Even re-watching this film for reviewing purposes had me feeling sick to my stomach more than a few times. Yes, the majority of the film is pretty much unwatchable unless you speak Japanese, but the ending is well worth the price of admission. “Niku Daruma” is definitely a must have for lovers of J-Sploitation or faux snuff films. There is an overwhelming amount of great hardcore Japanese horror and gore out there, and “Niku Daruma” is a great place to start. A lot of movies get praised as being the sickest or most disturbing film ever, and they don’t really live up to their expectations. “Niku Daruma” doesn’t just live up to its hype, it surpasses it. Hopefully, someone like Unearthed Films, who has been releasing a lot of extreme Japanese horror lately, will pick this film up so it can have a proper DVD release. If you want to see something that will have you asking “What the hell is wrong with me, why am I watching this??” then “Niku Daruma” is for you!

Finally saw it yesterday, and i gotta say the scene with the tongue actually
made me put down my sandwich for a change. That scene is just woooow.

Great
review too, just one thing i was under the impression she was leaving (not going
to the toilet) because she thought the S&M stuff she had to do was to much.
And
the male star after regaining consciousness (her appears passed out) get forced
by the director to mutilate her, and later do her insides.

This is NOT a horror movie. It was distributed by a company called Aroma who are
distributors of extreme fetish porn. So yeah, this is basically a porn movie
that sick fuckers get horny over because they have a fucked up fetish for
murder. Nice.

DEAR CHRIS MAYO, IAM WONDERING IF YOU COULD ANSWER A QUESTION THAT I HAD ON MY
MIND AND THAT QUESTION IS THIS. WHICH FILM IS MORE SEXUALLY DEPRAVED, MORE
SEXUALLY VIOLENT, MORE SEXUALLY PEVERSE, AND MORE SEXUALLY SICKINING NIKU DARUMA
OR ECCENTRIC PSYCHO CINEMA 1-7
Chris Mayo  - RE: NIKU DARUMA OR ECCENTRIC PSYCHO CINEMA 1-7     |SAdministrator |2011-11-02 10:05:02
It's all subjective really. Both Niku Daruma and the Eccentric Psycho Cinema
series are films/videos that depict pure degradation towards women. The most
extreme of Eccentric Psycho Cinema is probably number 7 due to its use of
hardcore scenes ala Niku Daruma.
BOBBY MALLICK  - IS NIKU DARUMA FOR PORN FANS OR GORE FANS   |69.127.154.xxx |2011-11-07 16:11:19
DEAR CHRIS MAYO I JUST WANTED TO KNOW OUT OF CURIOUSITY IF NIKU DARUMA WAS
INTENDED PRIMARLY FOR EXTREME GORE FANS OR EXTREME PORN FANS
BOBBY MALLICK  - IS THERE ANY ADULT HORROR FILM MORE HARDCORE THEN   |69.127.154.xxx |2011-11-07 16:14:32
DEAR CHRIS MAYO MY GOOD FRIEND YOU HAVE SUCH AN AWESOME WEBSITE BUDDY. I JUST
WANTED TO KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY ADULT HORROR FILMS THAT ARE MORE HARDCORE THEN
NIKU DARUMA OR IS NIKU DARUMA THE MOST HARDCORE ADULT HORROR FILM OUT THERE.
BOBBY MALLICK  - LADY IN A SEA OF BLOOD 1-4   |69.127.154.xxx |2012-01-14 19:09:01
DEAR CHRIS MAYO I WAS WONDERING IF THE LADY IN A SEA OF BLOOD SERIES CONTAINS
ANY SCENES OF RAPE, TORTURE, MURDER, MUTILATION, SADISM, DEGRADATION, AND
NECROPHILIA AT THE HANDS OF ANOTHER PERSON OR PEOPLE OR IS THE LADY IN A SEA OF
BLOOD A FILMS SERIES THAT FEATURES ONE LADY ALL BY HERSELF DOING VARIOUS FETISH
SEX ACTS ON HER OWN BY HERSELF.
