Crazy Lips back to product details

Strange, camp, occasionally amusing, often indecipherable.

In this movie, you will see: blood, pseudo-incest, pseudo-goths, pseudo-Cthulu worship, sex, rape, partial nudity, blood, a forest chase scene, dead bodies, more blood, secret agents of some kind, decapitated heads, wicker baskets, even more blood and exactly one "marital aid".

This movie is quite literally insane, and I still haven't figured it all out. I enjoyed it - but in the kind of way that people enjoy William Shatner's music or a Russ Meyer film. Crazy Lips should be enjoyed for its unintentional hilarity, for its unconventionality and wackiness, its blood, gore, decapitated heads, wicker baskets and sex toy.

The story jumps around a lot, and it probably wouldn't matter too much if you watched the film in fast forward or with the sound or subtitles off. Take my advice and don't try to make too much sense of the movie - just absorb the feast of absurd luridness laid before you.

Some people will absolutely hate Crazy Lips and if you're the kind of person who can't appreciate the fact that this movie is goofy, cliched, and doesn't make all that much sense, you're going to feel cheated at having rented it. It's not something that I would recommend to the mainstream renter. Instead, I would recommend this movie to fans of other Japanese horror movies such as Evil Dead Trap, or to cult movie fans.
