Reporter Yoko investigates the urban legend of the slit-mouthed woman, according to which a beauty-obsessed woman who wanted to get plastical surgery in a beauty-clinic was instead horribly mutilated - as the title sugests, her mouth was cut upen from cheek to cheek. Since then, she has haunted the clinic which was closed down only recently.

Yoko's sister Kazumi meanwhile has a boyfriend, Koji, who wants to take Kazumi to the abandoned beauty clinic one night on a dare, but when she refuses, he takes another girl, Hisato, with him, and they have sex right there, after which the slit-mouthed woman shows up, kills Hisato and gives Koji the scare of his life.

Koji returns to Kazumi a changed man, yet he is incredibly horny, and before you know it, they have sex, after which the slit-mouthed woman shows up again, killing Koji and giving Kazumi the scare of her life ... yet this makes her horny, and before you know it, she seduces Yoko's boyfriend ...

Yoko meanwhile slowly uncovers the truth about the slit-mouthed woman and figures the only way to release her from her curse is to go to the hospital herself and open her heart, as in a way, the slit-mouthed woman is victim just as much as she is killer. And really, it seems Yoko's plan works out and she makes the slit-mouthed woman leave this plane of existance for good ...

That night, Yoko returns home to find her boyfriend incredibly horny (no more mention of Kazumi), and while the two have sex, Yoko turns into the new slit-mouthed woman ...


In writing, this might sound like little more than your typical J-horror flick of the urban legends-variety - but actually the (thin) plot is little more than a hanger for a series of sex scenes. And this might not even be the worst idea, since all the actresses look really cute and the plot is of the tried-and-true variety that has been told much better elsewhere. Also, there are no interesting characters here let alone character development, and the direction is less than inspired. That doesn't mean the sex scenes make this one a good movie, not by a longshot, but without them it would have been worse, definitely.
