Or is it chicken? No one is really sure exactly WHAT makes it so yummy, but everyone agrees that the super-secret filling recipe at the new dumpling house is the best ever! Some people like it so much, in fact, that they're literally willing to kill to ge

Cruel Restaurant (Koji Kawano, 2008)
Kawano gave us the best-named movie of 2007 with Attack Girls Swim Team vs. the Undead, and now he's back with a similarly stupid, but kinda fun, movie that covers ground that we've seen about a dozen times before (assuming you like this sort of black comedy). There's Delicatessen, there's The Untold Story, there's The Green Butchers, there's Dumplings, etc., etc., ad nauseam, and now there's Cruel Restaurant. What is it about dumplings, in particular, that causes Asian filmmakers to think "cannibalism"? (Maybe that's why I'm so fond of the stupid, delicious little things...)
Rising softcore star Mihiro (Yo-Yo Sexy Girl Cop) stars as Ms. Lin, the owner of a hot new dumpling restaurant. The restaurant's patrons keep coming back for more, to the point where some of them start acting strange. And then the strange ones begin disappearing... when two reporters meet at the restaurant by chance, they compare notes and come to the...
If you've seen Daniel Lee's and Herman Yau's "Untold Story" and Fruit Chan's 90 minute version of "3 Extremes: Dumplings", you might have an idea as to what "CRUEL RESTAURANT" (aka. Zankoku Hanten, 2008) is all about. Directed/written by Koji Kawano (Attack Girls Swim Team vs. the Undead, I reviewed before) with screenplay by Satoshi Owada, the film is a wild blend of Japanese "pink" elements, horror, comedy and well, some blood and gore. If you think this is just another cannibal film, well, you will be very surprised--it`s not as simple as that. Oh, it also stars ex-AV star Mihiro Taniguchi (Yo-yo Sexy Girl Cop)--so do I have your undivided attention now?
Ms. Lin (Mihiro) is a young woman who has attained minor fame because of her "Tougen Dumplings" in a city in Japan. Food critics such as Hoemi Masumoto (sexy Chihiro Kaganezaki) and magazine reporter Toshika Shirizawa (Miho Funatsu) are very curious as to what the secret ingredient is in the delicacy; even a renowned...
This Movie might seem like your typical horror move. But, it has a twisted ending. Even though you think you get the plot (people disappear & end up in the dumplings) Guess again it's really how there made that's the real kicker. Not quite as grotesque as the movie "Extreme 3" (Where woman have abortions & the dead babies end up in the dumplings) this is a bit more sexy worth it if you a fan of strange,twisted,sexy, horror movies I give it 3-1/2 out of 5.
