One of the biggest
complaints about Gaira or Kazuo Komizu's Entrails Of A Virgin (1986)
is the electronic fogging of genitalia that is common to Japanese
movies though bare breast shots abound. Talk about Japanese decorum
on the one hand and Japanese ingenuity and innovation on the other.

can shout "Jason and the Evil Dead," Japanese pinku eiga
(pink or soft-porn films) director Kazuo Komizu has concocted
a movie involving a slasher/demon terrorising a group of people
in the woods. While films such as Friday The 13th (1980) and The
Evil Dead (1981) dabbled with the idea that if you have sex, you
die; their Japanese counterpart is nothing as severe. After all,
sex is a natural ingredient of the film and gore and death are
natural outcomes. Put it another way - if you are not particular
about film logic, you will be hugely entertained by the film's
sex, nudity and gore.
Daiki Kato is doing a soft-porn shoot in the countryside with
model Megumi Kawashima. Helping him are assistants Hideki Takahashi,
Saeko Kizuki and former lover Naomi Hagio. Supervising the shoot
and hoping to bed the model is the boss, Osamu Tsuruoka. Interspersed
between the photo shoot is a sex scene between Kato and Kawashima,
whom Kato promises to turn into a star.
off after the shoot, the group finds itself stranded in the foggy
countryside and decides to stay in a deserted building for the
night. Early evening entertainment involves assistant Hideki Takahashi
going through some pro-wrestling moves with Naomi Hagio, he in
his shorts and she, topless. Some of the acrobatic pseudo-sex
moves are so tough on Hagio that she pisses in her knickers before
passing out. Feeling angry over the "exercise," Takahashi storms
out of the room but is killed (with his eyes popping out!) by
then makes his moves on Kawashima. Slightly drunk, Kawashima gives
in to Tsuruoka's S&M sex (which involves a standing 69) but
even then finds him too brutal and goes off. She is then killed
after being "raped" by the mud-caked slasher, who is shown to
have a giant penis. Looking for Kawashima, Tsuruoka is impaled
in the ground when the slasher hurls a rod into him.
Kato gives a similar spiel about making her a star to the eager
and ambitious Kizuki, who easily gives herself to Kato. Possibly
the only "statement" the film makes is how gullible some girls/women
are when promises of stardom are presented to them. It's like
the more ambitious they are, the more they are willing to give
the couple's lovemaking is interrupted when Hagio, who has woken
up and gone outside, returns with Kawashima's bloody head. Unhinged,
Hagio goes to the bathroom to masturbate. She is thrown Tsuruoka's
broken-off hand which she uses on herself with relish. The creature
then turns up for more sex before inserting his hand into her
vagina and pulls out her entrails.
out into the night but is hung by the creature who then threatens
Kizuki before having sex with her. The fog clears in the morning.
The ending shows Kizuki, heavily pregnant, wistfully wondering
what had really happened.
