Issei Sagawa murdered an innocent woman and spent three days eating her flesh. Due to loopholes in the law, Issei is a free man to this day.
On the afternoon of June 13, 1981, a Japanese man named Issei Sagawa walked to the Bois de Boulogne, a park on the outskirts of Paris, carrying two suitcases. The contents of those suitcases, to the lament of a nearby jogger, was the dismembered body of a fellow student -- a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt, whom Sagawa had shot three days prior and had spent the days since eating various parts of her body.
He was soon arrested. According to reports, Issei uttered, "I killed her to eat her flesh," when they raided his home, whereupon they found bits of Renne still in his fridge.
Sagawa was declared insane and unfit for trial and was institutionalized in Paris. His incarceration was to be short, however, as the French public soon grew weary of their hard-earned francs going to support this evil woman-eater, and Issei was promptly deported. Herein followed a bizarre and seemingly too convenient set of legal loopholes and psychiatric reports that led doctors in Japan declaring him "sane, but evil."
On August 12, 1986, Sagawa checked himself out of Tokyo's Matsuzawa Psychiatric hospital, and has been a free man ever since.
Japanoise (ジャパノイズ Japanoizu?) is a portmanteau of the words "Japanese" and "noise": a term applied to the diverse, prolific, and influential noise music scene of Japan.Primarily popular and active in the 1980s and 1990s but still alive today, the Japanoise scene is defined by a remarkable sense of musical freedom. Some of the most popular groups range from the high-energy free improv stylings of Hijokaidan, the punk demolition of Hanatarash and its subsequent psychedelic Boredoms evolutions, to the tabletop electronics of Incapacitants and Merzbow. Aside from artists often releasing tapes and records in extremely limited quantities, countless side-projects, and collaborations exist within and outside the scene, making the pursuit of Japanoise media an intimidating quest for collectors. Japanoise, and particularlyharsh noise, as opposed to some other post-industrialrelated styles, is often much less aggressively "serious" image-based, being focused more on the sole act of "jamming" as hard, loud or ridiculously as possible.
Nick Cain of The Wire identifies the "primacy of Japanese Noise artists like Merzbow, Hijokaidan and Incapacitants" as one the of the major developments in noise music since 1990.
Certain Japanese noise artists themselves feel uncomfortable being categorized under the umbrella of "Japanese noise", arguing that use of the term is a way of ignoring the differences between musicians who don't necessarily follow the same approach or even know each other at all.
Carved(口裂け女,Kuchisake-onna,Slit-Mouthed Woman) is a 2007horror filmwritten and directed byKōji Shiraishi, and co-written by Naoyuki Yokota.
As stories about the Kuchisake-onna ("The Slit-Mouthed Woman") spread through a Japanese town, an earthquake causes a corpse matching the entity's description (a woman with long hair, a trench coat, scissors, and a white mask) to break out of a closet in an abandoned house. As that occurs, Noboru Matsuzaki, a teacher, hears a voice ask "Am I pretty?" At a playground, a boy who had gone looking for the Kuchisake-onna with friends is grabbed by the creature, which vanishes with him.
The boy's disappearance prompts the school where Noboru works to send the students home in groups, escorted by members of the staff. Mika is reluctant to go home, admitting to a teacher, Kyôko Yamashita, that her mother hits her. Kyôko (who has a troubled relationship with her own daughter, who lives with her ex-husband) is agitated when Mika claims to hate her mother, causing Mika to run away, right into the arms of the Kuchisake-onna, whose appearance was again foreshadowed by Noboru hearing a voice query "Am I pretty?" As Kyôko (who is paralyzed with fear) watches, the Kuchisake-onna leaves with Mika, who knocks her mask off, revealing the dead woman's disfigured face.
At the school, Noboru approaches Kyôko, and shows her a photograph of a woman who looks like the Kuchisake-onna. Noboru hears the voice again, and as he heads toward it with Kyôko, he tells her that the picture is thirty years old. Noboru traces the voice to a house, and he and Kyôko save the boy inside from the Kuchisake-onna, who Kyôko kills with a knife. The Kuchisake-onna's body turns into that of a neighboring housewife, revealing the Kuchisake-onna acts by possessing other woman, whose infection is signified by them developing a cough.
Noboru tells Kyôko that the woman in the photo is Taeko Matsuzaki, his dead mother, a sickly and unhinged woman who would abuse him and his siblings. One day, Taeko "disappeared" after killing Noboru's siblings, and after that the rumors and sightings of the Kuchisake-onna began. Noboru hears the voice of the Kuchisake-onna, who has possessed the mother of Mika's friend Natsuki. Natsuki is taken to the Kuchisake-onna's lair, where the Kuchisake-onna cuts her mouth, and murders the boy she had abducted from the playground. Mika cuts the ropes binding Natsuki, who escapes, but is too traumatized and injured to help with the search for Mika.
Kyôko looks through information on the Kuchisake-onna that the boy she saved had given her, and finds a note stating that the Kuchisake-onna's hideout is a deserted house with a red roof, a description which matches Noboru's childhood home. As he searches the building with Kyôko, Noboru remembers that his mother tried to have him mercy kill her, telling him that unless he decapitated her, she would come back. Instead, Noboru slit his mother's mouth and stabbed her, then dressed her body up in coat and mask, and hid it in the closet.
Kyôko and Noboru find Mika in the basement, and are attacked by the Kuchisake-onna. The Kuchisake-onna wounds Kyôko, then captures Noboru and Mika, takes them down to the basement, and brutalizes them. Finding a knife, Kyôko stabs the Kuchisake-onna in the neck with it, killing her, and leaving behind the body of Natsuki's mother. Mika's mother, who had gone off to look for her daughter on her own, arrives at the house, and becomes the new host of the Kuchisake-onna. To give Kyôko and Mika the chance to escape, Noboru sacrifices himself, fending off the Kuchisake-onna, and beheading her, convinced that doing so will finally vanquish her. The decapitation fails to stop the Kuchisake-onna, and unknown amount of time later, the spirit takes over Kyôko while she is visiting her daughter.
A three and a half out of five was awarded by Bloodtype Online, which called Carved "an excellent atmospheric movie" that was "shocking and very effective".  Arrow in the Head also responded well to Carved, giving it a three out of four, and stating that it was "risky, brutal and unsettling" and "a good film that is intense and scary". 
Variety had a mixed response, describing the film as a "low-budget chiller that is unlikely to join the international remake stampede" albeit one that "has an unsettling quality that transcends its cheap origins".  Slasherpool gaveCarved a two out of five, writing that it was poorly acted, cheap looking, and was "yet another dull ghost story with a basic plot, little gore and surprisingly enough - not a single scare".
