Assault! Jack the Ripper

de Yasuharu Hasabe

Synopsis

Recently hired as a waitress, Yuri convinces Ken, a pastry chef, to take her home. The key to convincing him is the promise that the next day he’ll wake next to her. Plans are one thing and reality is another: in the middle of their trip, they run over and kill a girl and then drive off. When they get home, the rush kicks in and Yuri can’t think of anything better to do than suggest to Ken that they repeat it the following night and kill again. With a plot that David Cronenberg could have signed onto, this delirious example of what violent Pink is bathes sexual drives in blood.
