BLOOD BEAD – REVIEW
Written by VHS
“Blood Bead” is the story of a sex addicted film professor who is struggling to get his latest film off the ground. Given the erotic nature of the film it is actually very dramatic and has a well told coherent story. The professor believes that his films must imitate his life and this idea leads him into some extremely dark territory. When his life starts to imitate his art, his entire world falls apart.
Director Banmei Takahashi is no stranger to the world of softies and has made over 86 films most of which fall into the softcore genre. Flicks with titles like “Perverted Fingers: Stop!”, “Female Prison: Pervert”, and “Bizarre Bondage Wife”. It’s no wonder “Blood Bead” is so full of sexual themes but the drama/rawness of this film will leave you feeling dirty for have watching it.
