Back in 2003, a man with a lifelong obsession with cannibalism placed an ad on the Internet to find a victim who wanted to be eaten. Amazingly, he found someone, and together the two formed an unspeakable bond of human carnage, most of which was captured on a camcorder, the footage from which was used in the eventual murder trial the cannibal faced.
Art house, surreal, underground, experimental. All these words have a place in the post-viewing vernacular of anyone who watches these two films by Shozin Fukui: 964 Pinocchio and Rubber's Lover, recently released on DVD by Unearthed Films. Both of these films exude the elements of fringe filmmaking at their finest, but the issue here is not what kind of films these are but why would a horror fan want to watch and/or own them? Well, that's a question that's not easily answered.
