Legend of the Overfiend
Hideki Takayama, 1989 108m
Deliciously brutal. The most famous hentai anime of all time, Overfiend is a prime cut of that aspect of Japanese culture we've all heard of but that precious few of us have experienced. Every 3,000 years, the Overfiend (Chojin) comes, in the form of an (unsuspecting) human, to unite the human world with the worlds of the Man-beasts and the Monster Demons. But something goes awry, and the new world turns out to be an apocalypse of Japanese horror tropes. Come for the intrusive tentacles, stay for the exploding torsos. DVD
