One of the great things about being hardcore trash enthusiasts is that Lady P and I are willing to give ANYTHING a go, and when we saw the DVD of this in a shop today, with nothing on the cover except a very faint image of two miniaturised Japanese girls standing in a urinal, we just had to have it. And watch it. As soon as we got home.
Despite the quite brilliant poster art, Rectuma is actually a micro-budget US movie but itís in the style of the old Japanese monster films. Waldo Williams, on holiday in Mexico, is violated by the Mexican butt humping bull frog with the result that his prostate gets affected and unless he gets treatment from Dr Wantmoresake heís going to die. Unfortunately the Drís nuclear treatment results in Waldoís buttocks taking on a life of their own, detaching themselves from their creator, and going on the rampage, killing his unfaithful wife, her lover, and three perverted priests before growing to Godzilla size and setting about destroying Los Angeles. A Japanese super monster fighter is called in ("Thereís only one problem," says one character, "he does have a slight speech impediment," which Iíll leave you to discover if you watch the movie). Anyway, while it turns out that ďthere isnít an ass in the world that isnít frightened of a rubber gloveĒ the actual method of despatch involves shooting a Muslim suicide bomber up its back passage after filling it with a mixture of beans, prune juice and bran. You can probably guess the rest, but youíd never guess that the entire proceedings are accompanied by songs from the Japanese chorus of the two girls who are on the DVD cover, nor that the case is being investigated by a Jodie Foster / Clarice Starling wannabe who canít stand the sight of menís asses or hamsters after she was mentally scarred by the evil Dr Rektor in a previous case. Utterly unpredictable, Rectuma offers the funniest title sequence Iíve seen in ages, the promise of a terrifying sequel featuring enormous testicles entitled Scroton, and while the first half on hour is a bit slow I havenít laughed this much in weeks.

Jennifer is currently cackling with glee, being an enthusiast of the Man-in-Rubber-Monster-Suit genre of Japanese film. One must attempt to locate this here. Apparently NetFlix is about to crush all video store businesses in the next 15 minutes, so perhaps it can be had at a steep discount.
