Thread: Nikkatsu Roman Porno Catalogue Titles Coming From Synapse/Impulse

  1. #401
    Agree, Takuma. Very good film, but not at the WOMAN OF THE AFTERNOON or RAPE 13TH HOUR level.

    Very happy that this IS a BluRay.

    I just watched it and I'm wondering what the hell happened at the end. The girls were getting raped by the "heroes" and the teacher has the shotgun pointed at her face - then we cut to the teacher on the phone explaining to the lodge that they're "running a bit late" and then she gets back on the bus and cheerfully announces to the students that she's going to go over the itinerary again and we see a shot of the bus continuing down the highway. The End. Huh? How did they escape? What happened to all of the perverts? Why is the teacher so happy at the end?
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    Love WHITE ROSE CAMPUS... The ending is very Nikkatsu, and pretty much says, "That was a wacky experience, let's move on."

    Somehow that's more offensive than anything in the movie - the refusal to provide a goddamn ending!

    So is "Zoom Up: Rape Site" the same as "Zoom Up: Murder Site," just with the title toned down presumably because Americans currently find rape more transgressive than murder?

    Yup.

    I first saw WHITE ROSE CAMPUS on a bootleg VHS and even at that time wondered what the hell was going on. Censorship cuts are out of the question so it's either general incompetence or a chaotic, rushed production schedule that's to blame. You have to remember that these films were cranked out in a couple of days and that Japanese scripts, even for much more mainstream productions, are nowhere nears as long and detailed as Hollywood screenplays. It'll just say "chase scene" for example instead of actually describing anything. Or "torture with needles" or "rape scene, improvise". Anyway, thanks to the various distributors both in Japan an in the US being unwilling/unable to compile any meaningful extras for these releases, we will most likely never know the full truth.

    Most were made not in a couple (2) of days, but 4-7 with some getting bigger shoots (STAR OF DAVID, FAIRY IN A CAGE, WIFE TO BE SACRIFICED).

    Synapse sticks it to the man. My copy of "Zoom Up" arrived today, with "Rape Site" proudly emblazoned on it. (I ordered directly from the Impulse website.) Actually the slipcover is doubled sided for the sake of the squeamish. But you know which side I'll have exposed when I set it out on the coffee table for my guests to admire on Thanksgiving Day. How could I doubt America?

    I appreciated the double cover. My copy, from the site also, came with the correct title displayed. Respect!

    Despite a terribly abrupt conclusion, RAPE SITE is pretty solid.

    Not as outrageous as once written about (I'd save the "outrageous" tag for WOMAN OF THE AFTERNOON-INCITE), it is, nevertheless, reasonably rough, well directed by Ohara, and very well shot.
