Inmu 2: Flesh Dreams
Reviewer: Rowena Lim Lei 05/24/2003

Synopsis:
Again, four episodes comprise this collection:
  • The First Night "Illusion" - Like most young women her age, Youri has a boyfriend. The problem is, she can't seem to make herself go all the way with him. Rumor has it that her boyfriend is frequenting a massage parlor because of a masseuse who looks just like Youri...
  • The Second Night "Excessive Love" - Megumi is a pretty young nurse who lives alone. Unknown to her, an obssessed man is watching her every move with a telescope from the building across... and he's determined to possess Megumi at all costs.
  • The Third Night "The Shadow Card" - A man who's addicted to playing cards orders some special cards to help him win in the upcoming tournament. But his new cards are magical, and the girls on the cards come to life to fulfill his sexual fantasies.
  • The Fourth Night "Drowning in a Summer" - A stepmother seduces her young stepson, unleashing his uncontrollable innermost desires.
Review:
Inmu 2 is the sequel to Inmu. Like its predecessor, Inmu 2 is a collection of strange hentai short stories which are Twilight Zone-ish in nature... although quite far from being anywhere as good as any Twilight Zone episode. Porn star Asia Carrera reprises her role as the masked woman who "guides" us through each episode, reminding us to "look at our backs" once again.

With the exception of the third night, I disliked all the episodes of Inmu 2. The first episode went by like a blur. There were two Youri's and one guy... and then that was that. I didn't really understand what happened in the end. The second episode was downright infuriating; showcasing what could be one of the most disgusting de-virginizing rape scenes ever. There was so much blood and semen that it seemed as if the room was flooded with them. I also didn't get how the obsessed man managed to conduct astral travel and "teleport" in and out of Megumi's room, even going through her underwear drawer. The third episode, "The Shadow Card", was the most entertaining of the bunch. The card-playing man uses his magical cards for all they are worth, and when he finally puts out the final ace from his sleeve, he gets the surprise of his life. I'm not going to describe it any more as not to ruin Inmu 2's one and only saving grace. The last episode "Drowning in a Summer" tries to emulate a classic silent film style in the beginning, showing flashes of white text against a black background in place of dialogue. Apparently, the stepmother wants some hot young blood to liven up her day... but the tables are turned when her stepson becomes uncontrollable, oversexed, and abusive. But the stepmom-stepson sex scenes are actually flashbacks, and I have no idea what the present situation is because of the f*cked-up storytelling.

I had high hopes for Inmu 2 since I thought Inmu had a lot of unrealized potential. Sad to say, Inmu 2 is extremely disappointing. With the exception of the third episode "The Shadow Card", everything had the same vague storytelling style which didn't elicit any sort of wonderment from me... just discontentment. Inmu 2 makes the first Inmu seem like a freaking masterpiece. Inmu had some great plot ideas but somewhat lame endings. Inmu 2 has some lame plot ideas and lame endings. At least the masked woman spouts markedly less lyrical quotes this time around.

The art and animation are somewhat above average. Different groups of animators worked on each episode but overall I found the character designs to be quite nice. If there's one thing Inmu 2 improves on it's definitely the visuals. Sex is depicted explicitly, more so compared to the first Inmu. Inmu 2 shows absolutely all the anatomical parts complete with their matching secretions in great detail. The English dubbing is generally okay. As is the case with the previous Inmu Asia Carrera does a passable job as the guide. Since she has a lot less to say this time, her tendency to murmur didn't bother me as much. The other porn stars (Kobe Tai, Brittany Andrews, Alexa Rae, and Jacklyn Lick) sounded about right for the parts they were playing as well.

All in all, Inmu 2 had a nice concept going. It's just too bad there wasn't enough creativity to pull it off.

Miscellanies:
Two DVDs comprise the boxed set.
