Special Guest: Jerry Chandler
This week we're looking at Naosuke Kurosawa's 1980 Japanese Roman Porno film Zoom In: Sex Apartments (AKA Zoom In: Rape Apartments/Zûmu in: Bôkô danchi). The film tells the tale of a young married woman who gets raped on the way to visit an old flame. The assault appears to be a part of a series of similar rapes and gruesome murders taking place in an apartment block. The film is visually striking and seems inspired by Dario Argento's 1970s giallo films.
We're joined once again by VCinema's Coffin Jon to talk about pinku eiga, roman porno, and more.
