WTF WEDNESDAY PRESENTS:
WARNING! THIS IS PROBABLY NSFW!
You know, kids, I've been pretty good to you. Sure I've exposed WTF Wednesdays to Robogeishas, zombie elves, and French tentacle monsters....but never before have I introduced you guys to a full lenth film to watch, enjoy, and cringe at. Riki-Oh is a 1991 live-action film based on a Japanese manga of the same name. The year is 2001 and the prison systems have become privatized, paving the way for crime and corruption (Close enough to the truth, really). A young man by the name of Ricky is thrown into one of these prisons where every day is a fight for your life. The prison is ruled over by four ruthless thugs, The Gang of Four, and, after they cross Ricky, the movie basically becomes a ridiculous, balls to the walls gallery of gore and ultraviolence.
For those of you of gentle pallets, you should probably avoid this film. For those of you that enjoy a good B-movie, especially a Hong Kong B-movie in the vein of Fist of the North Star, check out the link below to watch the whole movie.
