Every 3000 years the monstrous “overfiend” emerges to destroy every species in existence so the Earth can start anew. Graphic sex and gore are selling points of this cult classic Japanese anime, which is based on the comic by Toshio Maeda. After awhile it seems like it hops from one crude horror/sex set-piece to another. It gets far too repetitive before the climax finally tries to throw some kindergarten-level message our way. More review coming soon.
