ACF 1430: THE DEVIL’S FEAST coming in July on subtitled DVD from Switchblade Pictures
Switchblade Pictures has obtained the rights to THE DEVIL’S FEAST, the suspense and shibari erotic thriller from the late, internationally acclaimed novelist and screenwriter Oniroku Dan (FLOWER AND SNAKE, ROPE HELL, LADY BLACK ROSE). Widely considered to be Japan’s greatest master of dark erotica, Dan, who passed away in May of 2011, wrote over two hundred novels over his career, as well as the screenplays for many of Japan’s most successful and influential features, being especially known his popularization of the Japanese rope-bondage art of Shibari.
Directed by Kenji Hanyu from an adaption by Hiroshi Yoshino, THE DEVIL’S FEAST was distributed theatrically in Japan by Shintoho and stars Chihiro Koganezaki (CRUEL RESTAURANT), Yuya Matsuura (ZOMBIE HUNTER RIKA), Hitoshi Kajiki (RINKO 18) and famed AV model Arisa Matsumoto.
Synopsis: When the beautiful Kumiko joins the editorial desk at a small local newspaper, the most deeply kept secrets of the rich and powerful leader of a religious cult suddenly begin finding their way into print in blistering exposes… scandalous exposes which have even more shocking repercussions for the paper’s sales manager, Okomoto, and his elegant wife Shizuyo. Ensnared in the escalating war of wits and chains between the sadistic cult master and Kumiko, his former sex slave, Shizuyo finds herself strung in the rope bonds of a ruthless game that mixes sensuality with humiliation.
Could it be that Shizuyo’s only hope of release may come in the form of her own husband’s mistress? Or is that exactly what the Devil has been planning on all along? From the novels of the late legendary SM Master Oniroku Dan, prepare to be served a dark and unsettling vision of twisted lust and inhuman bondage: THE DEVIL’S FEAST!
THE DEVIL’S FEAST will begin Home Video release on subtitled DVD July 31st 2012.
