Suicide Club (2001) Movie Review

Article by FisterRoboto of

Written & Directed by Shion Sono

Starring Ryo Ishibashi, Masatoshi Nagase and Mai Hosho

54 high school girls throw themselves in front of a subway train. This appears to be only the beginning of a string of suicides around the country. Does the new all-girl group Desert have anything to do with it? Detective Kuroda tries to find the answer, which isn’t as simple as one could hope.

This may be my shortest movie review ever. Suicide Club sucks. Clever idea, terrible execution. The gist of it? Evil pop music acts, shitty pied piper subtext, uninspired commentary on the state of the world, well, best I could tell. The film is so bottom-of-the barrel that it’s hard to figure out what’s really going on. Save the metaphors for the DVD box art.

Silly, bland, yet it somehow seems full of itself. Pass, pass, pass – for the love of God, do not waste 90 minutes on this. This makes The Devil Inside look like freaking Rosemary’s Baby.
