Description by OLDIES.com:
Japanese, subtitled in English - Cult film fans around the world can finally rejoice, for the greatest hidden treasure of cult cinema is coming in a fully uncut, completely remastered edition. Director Teruo Ishii s astonishing Horrors of Malformed Men, long suppressed in its home country, is making its worldwide home video debut in a supplement-laden DVD from Synapse Films.
Teruo Ishii's wonderfully named 1969 feature HORRORS OF MALFORMED MEN has gradually picked up a sizable underground following over the years. The film follows an escapee from an asylum who tries to figure out why he keeps seeing a picture of a man who looks just like him him in a local newspaper. The answer lies on a remote island populated by a mad scientist and the creatures he has created in his lab.
