Day 10 of 32 Days of Halloween is where we share with you a Japanese horror trailer. And nothing clears the mind of its regular flotsam and jetsam like the cleansing nature of these Japanese trailers of the 1960s and 70s. This year we take a look at the three-minute-plus trailer for Horrors of Malformed Men. You might think the trailer isn’t really putting across what the hell the film is about…and you’re right. The film is about a guy who wakes up in an asylum with no notion of how he got there or what he was about. He gets a lead on what his memories might be trying to tell him and goes in search of knowledge…and finds an island populated by malformed men and the man who has created them.
And the trailer is like a dream that, upon waking, you wrack your brain to remember what you ate before bedtime…so you can never eat it again. Please note: some brief flashes of flesh. Just the NSFW nature for yourself. Good luck.
The film is out on DVD from Synapse Films with a more than decent array of special features.
If you need some more WTF in your life, check out previous entries for HOUSE! or a buffet of Japanese horror trailers, then English films in Japanese–which makes them extra scary. We did Friday the 13th and Dawn of the Dead plus Evil Dead. Before we went to Japan we had the lost modern classic, The South Will Rise Again, in trailer form.
