Wow... I did know they had an anime about THAT. Sounds intruging... and sickening all at the same time. I don't how else to respond to that.

I have just seen The Flower of Flesh and Blood. This is one of the sickest films in film history. This is also one of the films that inspired the otaku muderer. The film is about an otaku trying to impress his favorite horror manga artist by sending him photos & a video of a murder. Basically this guy kidnaps a girl ties her up to a bed and drugs her so she can't feel pain. He then precedes to cut off her hands. Next he cuts off her arms and legs. Next he cuts her stomach open. Then finally He cuts off her head. This sick bastard isn't finished yet. He decides to shows us his collection of body parts as he sings a satanic chant.
Knowing the fact that a real little girl was killed like this by someone imitating this film really made me sick. The extras on the DVD are awesome. The DVD includes the original Flower of Flesh and Blood manga and an interview with the director.
Unless there was an anime version of this I don't know about, Flowers of Flesh and Blood is a live action movie. Legend has it that it has been mistaken for a real snuff film by some.Originally Posted by DianaGohan
Society's fascination with gore has led filmmakers to experiment with how realistic they can make a horror scene. This has led to the creation of some incredible fakes, including the infamous Flower of Flesh and Blood of the "Guinea Pig" series.Any reports of someone copycatting anything in films like this are most likely false. It's probably just mentioned to make the film more shocking to the would be viewer (by whoever is reccomending it). Snopes would probably have mentioned any copy catting as well, but since they don't it's most likely a low key rumour. Since I can't prove that it's 100% fake though, you'll have to point me to a source where it claims it's true first.Guinea Pig: Early in 1991, a film of Asian origin rumored to contain actual snuff footage came into the possession of actor Charlie Sheen. Sheen turned it over to the FBI, quite convinced he'd stumbled onto the real thing, and heartily sickened by what he'd seen.
The film in question was Flower of Flesh and Blood, part of a series of films collectively known as "Guinea Pig." Some of the "Guinea Pig" films have at least temporarily fooled the authorities, fueling news stories about the unearthing of snuff films. It's no wonder either; the special effects are very cleverly executed. Flower of Flesh and Blood is the episode which stirs much of the controversy. It features a samurai torturing, then dismembering a captive girl until she eventually expires in front of the cameras.
It wasn't real. According to The San Francisco Chronicle:
The FBI confiscated Sheen's tape and proceeded to investigate all involved, including Charles Balun, an early distributor of the film. Balun fiercely asserted that the film was a hoax and was merely a series of startling special effects. Propitiously, the Japanese took this time to release ''Guinea Pig Two: The Making of Guinea Pig One,'' revealing the technical sleight of hand in all its bone-cracking glory. After viewing this film, the FBI backed off and dropped the investigation.
In a stunning display of bad taste, this film was shown on San Francisco's public access channel in October 1996.
Snoopes don't know what the hell they are talking about. The Flower of Flesh and Blood is Guinea pig 2. The Flower of Flesh and Blood was made in 1985. The making of Guinea pig was made in 1986 and is a documentary of the 1st 3 Guinea pig movies. The Otaku killer's name is Tsutomu Miyazaki. The director talks about the otaku murder case & Charlie Sheen in the interview on the DVD.Originally Posted by Sir Lucius
You could have saved me a lot of trouble by dropping his name in the first place ;|
Hm...sounds like one sick movie. I have no idea why you would want to watch something that realistic when it invovles the torture and murder of a young girl but hey thats your own bussiness. Personally I perfer my movies to be less "Oh my God!" and more "Sweet Jesus did you see that.".
So that question I got is did someone copy cat this movie and if so what did Japan do about it?
"Didn't your mother tell you not to play with fire? Maybe you weren't listening or you were too busy burning the house down." Kenshin Himura
"You could say history is like an endless waltz. Three measures of war, peace, and revolution continue in an endless cycle." Marie meia Kushrenada
"Man fears the darkness... And so, he scrapes away at edges of it with fire." Rei Ayanami
I can safely say that I'm going to be having nightmares tonight. Because of my morbid curiosity, I peeked at the screencaps. *shudders* That sick....SICK.......SICK FREAK! And doing this to an innocent girl?! DOUBLE SICK! TRIPLE SICK!!! SICK TO THE UMPTEENTH DEGREE!!!!!
Thank God that it wasn't real. Had that been a real murder many people, myself included, would've hunted this freak down and popped a cap up his.
I wonder what Capalert would think of this movie......(evil grin).
These underground splatter flicks make mainstream horror films look very tame indeed. Don't bother looking for them unless you're a gorehound and a major one at that. I say this as a cult movie fan myself. No one makes shocking films quite like the Japanese.
Thanks for realizing the fact that it is my own business what I chose to watch & read. If it’s any consolation I felt so dirty after watching it that I took a shower.Originally Posted by surforst
I posted a link about what happen to Miyazaki in my last post. The Japanese realized thousands of people had watched the movie and have never tried to kill anyone so they didn't blame the film.Originally Posted by surforst
Actually the Italians horror films are just as extreme as the Japanese ones. The actor & actress in the film were disgusted with this film. They complain to the director a lot . The only reason they starred in it was because they were the director’s friends.Originally Posted by Neo-Era
That's disturbing. Idiots like this dork, and the dude who wanted to turn his school into the lobby scene from the Matrix give fandom a bad name.
Who the hell made this show? I'd personally like to hit him. Go Nagai?
I've also heard that the German splatter flicks are on par with the ones from Japan and Italy.Originally Posted by Senbei Norimaki
