The uncut version was originally refused classification by the OFLC in Australia in September of 1992. One month later, the film was resubmitted, only heavily cut. It received an R18+ rating for cinema release, but when the heavily cut version was resubmitted for a video rating in 1994, it was again refused classification and banned in Australia, even though the same print was given a cinema rating. Finally, in 2004, the film was resubmitted and received an R18+ rating for the original uncut print on video. See more »
I rented this one because I love to watch nasty and shocking movies.This film is about a secret base in Manchuria,where during the Second World War many innocent Chinese and Mongolian people were killed in horrific experiments.I didn't find this movie disturbing-even "Last House on the Left" is more offensive than this one.There are some scenes of extreme brutality but the special effects are mostly fake-especially during the dissection sequence.I've heard that "Men Behind the Sun"(1987)is far more gruesome.In conclusion,you can try it but don't expect something really vile-you'll be sorely disappointed.
