Exclusive: Freaky Clip From Hitoshi Matsumoto's Surreal, S&M-Themed 'R100'

Next month, “Fifty Shades Of Grey” comes to cinemas, bringing its best-selling, Mom-approved kinks to the big screen for mass consumption. But we’re pretty sure it won’t have anything on Hitoshi Matsumoto‘s “R100,” in which a particular fetish gets exercised in some unlikely ways.

Nao Omori leads the movie as Takafumi Katayama, a salesman leading a dull, semi-tragic life, raising his young son alone as his wife is in a coma. Seeking an outlet for some excitement, Takafumi signs up with an S&M club that has some very curious stipulations: membership is for one year, it can’t be canceled, and you will be treated to beatings and public humiliation. And there are no limits. Want an example? Check out this exclusive clip in which a nighttime stroll takes on sexy, violent dimensions.

“R100” opens on VOD and in limited release on Friday, January 23rd. Watch below.
