I was a relative newb to the horror genre when I first saw the likes of the early films of Peter Jackson and the Evil Dead films. Those movies laid the bloody groundwork for me to later take in more extreme gorefests like the German insanity of Der Todesengel (aka Angel of Death: Fuck or Die) and Takashi Miike's gonzo Japanese yakuza epic Ichi the Killer. Even knowing that there were movies out there that rival and maybe even surpass these classics in the guts-n-grue department, even that knowledge could not have readied me for what was to come in the form of a Japanese manga-influenced, Italian action-horror hybrid from one-time writer/director/actor Emanuele De Santi; that movie is Adam Chaplin.
