Two Japanese erotic films join the Synapse DVD collection. They’re not technically horror, but I know there are some people out there that will find these of interest.
Nurse Diary: Wicked Finger
“Ryoko (Etsuko Hara) leaves the chaos of her dorm for the peace and quiet of her own place because she wants to keep her relationship with a doctor at Murata Hospital a secret. Unfortunately, that privacy is short-lived as she discovers a “peeping tom” next-door neighbor that spies on her all the time. When the doctor’s wife learns of the affair, poor Ryoko gets caught in a web of jilted lovers, frisky lesbians, slapstick sexual assault and embarrassing incidents with household appliances. The first film in Nikkatsu’s three picture “Nurse Diary” series, NURSE DIARY: WICKED FINGER is a strange mix of comedy, nudity and sex with an oh-so-crazy plot that will have you shaking your head in disbelief!”
Horny Working Girl: From 5 to 9
“A woman named Chieko Kuwano (the beautiful Junko Asahina) is hired as an assistant manager at a large corporate office in Japan. She’s smart, sexy, and willing to do almost anything for her sex-starved new boss but, since he’s married, his deviant behavior makes her uncomfortable. Fed up with the boss and his perverted ways, the ladies in the building band together to plot their own special kind of revenge… but only after they have a lesbian three-way slumber party, of course! HORNY WORKING GIRL: FROM 5 TO 9 will have your libido working overtime!”
Green band trailer for Drive 2; oh wait, I mean Only God Forgives
Set in Bangkok, Only God Forgives stars Ryan Gosling as a man who runs a boxing club/drug cartel who gets caught up in a vengeful quest to find his brother’s killers. It’s a dark narrative, one that lurks in the perversity of the human mind. Gosling worked with director Nicolas Winding Refn in the other dark action/drama Drive.
