The Movie:
Just to clarify, "The Last Supper" is not about Leonardo's painting or Jesus. It's about a cannibalistic serial killer. If you aren't completely put off by that idea and can handle extreme horror movies, continue reading my review!

The plot: Doctor Yuji Kotorida is a plastic surgeon by day, eater of women's flesh by night. Yuji loves the taste of human meat so much that he even writes a diary of his cannibalistic journey online. Naturally, his reign of terror is in jeopardy as the police become involved.

"The Last Supper" certainly isn't the most original horror film. The script borrows heavily from "Hannibal" (and maybe even "Nip/Tuck"), but it isn't a complete rip off. The day-in-the-life point of view, the grotesque eating scenes, the flashbacks of where his cannibalism began all provide a different look into the mind of a serial killer. Director Osamu Fukutani wants to get under your skin by showing us every disturbing thing Yuji does and he succeeds.

A word of warning- the violence is extremely graphic and it can get a little repetitive. If you think you can handle scenes of decapitations and flesh being eaten- then feel free to give it a shot.

The DVD

Video:
The widescreen picture looks more like VHS quality. It's not awful looking, but it's not up to the standards of DVD.

Sound: The sound is good. Too good. There's no fancy audio track here, but the sound is crystal clear during the scenes when the Doc prepares his meal. Don't ask me to describe anymore. You don't want to lose your lunch.

Extras: Nothing much here. There's two trailers for a film called Kobakichi. There is also the option of playing the film with an English dub or watching it in Japanese with English subtitles. You better choose the subtitles.

Final Thoughts:
I can easily recommend a rental to gore hounds and horror enthusiasts. Everyone else will most likely be repulsed. Such is the reaction of horror films in general.

Film and television enthusiast Nick Lyons recently had his first book published titled "Attack of the Sci-Fi Trivia." It is available on Amazon.com.
