In fact his works so perfectly embody the surreal aesthetics and freakish eroticism of the movement that I had no choice but to grant all 10 spots on this “best of” list to this singular & profound director. From adaptations of Rampo to disfigured rapists, S&M dwarfs, depraved nuns, grand guignol and visions of hell, Ishii’s films are a must see for all connoisseurs of the beautiful and bizarre…

1) Horrors of Malformed Men:

This is one of my favourite films of all time. It’s an insane amalgamation of several Edogawa Rampo tales strung together as a beautifully grotesque hallucination, just watch it.

2) Inferno of Torture:

Tragic tales of impending torture, incest, insane nuns, terrifying tattoos & ultimate execution.

3) Joys of Torture:

More breathtaking imagery including stories of jealousy, bestiality and nude bullfighting as well as an emergency cesarean section initiated under somewhat sordid circumstances…

4) Hell’s Tattooers:

Another beauty in the Tokugawa Torture series, complete with a sadistic brothel, chastity belt torture, eye gaugings and psychedelic tattoos…

5) Bohaichi Clan of the Forgotten Eight:

A Yakuza-Chanbara type movie but one that runs rampant with ero guro ideas including perpetual torture techniques, nude female ninja, bath houses, opium smoking and a cage full of women with syphilis. Based on a manga by Kazuo Koike this is by far the greatest Samurai adventure I have ever seen, I’ve watched this over 50 times.

6) Blind Woman’s Curse:

This one is actually a fairly tame (and sometimes silly) yakuza-chanbara film but features ero-guro theatre master Tatsumi Hijikata and a strange circus of horrors that will give エログロfans plenty of spectacular visuals to feast upon even if the overall story isn’t that messed up.

7) Blind Beast Vs Killer Dwarf:

Pure nastiness. A vile low budget adaptaion of two fantastically horrific eru-guro stories by Edogawa Rampo. This one is so terribly disgusting that I absolutely love it. Note: Genius filmaker Shinya Tsukamoto shows up here in the coveted role of Akechi Kogoro which makes this evil bit of trash even more amazing.

a tender moment with a pretty decapitated victim

 

8) Female Yakuza Tale:

This movie is rather bonkers mixing ridiculous humour, sleazy sex, funky music, naked sword play and yakuza ethics to create a delightfully surreal adventure into poor taste. Although it is essentially a comedic & exploitative revenge flick, Ishii never fails to provide the psychedelic, bizarre and beautifully erotic violence that make him the king of ero-guro film.

9) Love & Crime:

Drawing upon several true stories of erotic crimes Ishii offers up yet another strange series of エログロexperiences including an adaptation of the infamous Sada Abe as well as a few other viscious snip-snips.

10) Jigoku:

Jigoku has some bat-shit-crazy-cheese special effects that depict hell as a psychedelic cartoon gone wrong. The colours, latex, gore and imaginative torture scenes perfectly capture the surrealism of a great ero-guro painting even though this is primarily a moral retribution film that doesn’t have a lot of erotic elements.
