A deranged, scarred and sightless sculptor imprisons a model in a psychedelic labyrinth of giant sculpted eyes and other body parts, before dismembering her in a fearful blood-orgy. The blind killer continues his sexually-charged spree of amputation and decapitation, before presenting his work at an acclaimed art exhibition in which the sculptures are a little too life-like for comfort. One of the earliest literary examples of the Japanese erotic-grotesque' genre, it is a classic of grinding horror and weird sex, tainted with a virulent black humour.'
