This episode didn’t disappoint either. I seriously can’t put my finger on it, but I’m enjoying this series so much despite the low budget. I wasn’t really scared throughout the episode and the lizard was kinda something I laughed a bit about at first. It got better later on though and everything just got so weird and freaky. I read a comment somewhere where somebody said this series reminded him of the old Goosebump Tv-series and even though Hideshi Hino’s Theater of Horror is far more sick, I’m inclined to agree. It kinda takes me back to those weird, but fun stories.
I’m trying to get a hold of episode 3 (even though I guess it doesn’t matter in what order you watch them, but I like to do things right - a bit of a perfectionist in that area) called Death Train, but it’s not that easy really. But my guess is that I’ll blog about it in 2 or 3 days.
Horror screenwriter, Umeki, has writer’s block. He goes with his pregnant wife, Akiko, to a check-up and is struck with an incredible idea - a horror story about a woman who gives birth to a reptile! Despite his wife’s disgust, Umeki goes ahead with the screenplay, which the critics love. But the horrible prophecy fulfills itself, as his wife gives birth to a freak of nature. His baby is born half human, half lizard! The reptilian baby slithers on the floor, leaving a wet trail of slime behind it. To his horror, his wife, Akiko, holds it lovingly in her arms. His movie has become a mirror image of his own life as Umeki slips slowly into madness…
Hi, I came across your blog while browsing through Technorati. I just wanted to say that this series(?) looks very, very strange!! Is it available on video? If not, how are you getting the episodes??Dennis:
They are very, very strange:P
Yes there are Hong Kong releases with Chinese subtitles out there. So if you understand Chinese then they can be bought here:
The Ravaged House: Zuroko’s Disease
Occult Detective Club: The Doll Cemetary
I’ve downloaded them via bittorrent and watch them with English subtitles, so if you’re interested in that then get back to me and I’ll e-mail you. But I won’t be home all day so sorry if it takes a while..
