Purporting to tell the true story of Japanese medical experiments on the Chinese populace during World War II, this repulsive exploitation film from director He Chi-Chiang spares no atrocity. More a parade of grotesqueries than an actual story, the highlights include a woman's skin pulled off her bones like gloves, a real cat eaten alive by rats, and a frostbitten man's fingers knocked off with a hammer. In the film's most infamous scene, a man is put in a hyperbaric chamber and pressured until his intestine shoots six feet out his rear end in close-up. Oddly, the story is told from the perspective of some young Japanese recruits doing their part for the war effort. There is one neutral character, a cute youngster, with whom the audience is brought to sympathize - only to later see him graphically dissected. A truly foul piece of work, this film has acquired a cult reputation among horror fans of strong constitution, and led to a pair of redundant sequels.
