* BilingualBonus: Although "kiri kiri" is translated as "deeper, deeper" in the English subtitles and elsewhere as "cut cut", it is actually the Japanese onomatopeia for describing sharp pain. [[spoiler: Which Aoyama is in a lot of by that point.]]

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Aoyama's son, Shigehiko, manages to save his father from a horrific death at the hands of Asami, kicking her down a flight of stairs causing her neck to snap. Unfortunately, Aoyama has suffered absolutely '''horrific''' torture, and the ending implies he may be just a tad crazy.]]

* GutPunch: The first 45 minutes could easily be mistaken for a romantic drama in which everything is slightly... off. Then we get Asami's EstablishingCharacterMoment.

* EnforcedMethodActing: For the scene where Asami [[spoiler: vomits into a dish and feeds it to the Bag Man, ''the vomit is real.'']] Eihi Shiina [[spoiler: ''insisted'' on actually vomiting [[VomitDiscretionShot (offscreen, thankfully)]] for the scene.]]

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: The torture sequence in this movie was wrenching enough to make a number of seasoned gorehound directors walk out of a screening, including Creator/EliRoth, Creator/JohnLandis, and ''Creator/RobZombie''.
