Suicide Club

Director: Sion Sono
Year Released: 2002
Rating: 0.5

Get a load of this: several hundred Japanese teens decide to kill themselves by throwing themselves in front of a subway train … and the police want to actually … stop them (!?). Crazy, right? Then, and here's the stunning part: the whole operation is cooked up by - no, not a homosexual rock-star wannabe (red herring!) - a group of little kids (?) and a pop group! Nonsensical, hysterical rubbish - I was thinking this was actually going to investigate the teen suicide problem (and/or Internet cults) but it's not good for that - hey look, someone jumped off the roof: activate the squibs! Sploosh!
