A film about obsessions on bondage and tattoos, disguised as historically adequate treatment of an inglorious episode in Japans long gone past. It's ingredients are violence, brothels, tattoos, female whorehouse bosses, tattoos, mean pimps, even meaner prostitutes, tattoos, whips, knives, drugs, torture and tattoos. The main theme is the transformation of young girls' skins into pieces of art, depicting both abstract and figurative motives, the latter mainly dealing with death, birth, violence and other more or less disturbing themes.

When two Girl Bosses fight each other over territory, their enmity is difficult to solve - they are equals in looks, strength, determination, and power of their respective girl gangs. So, the way is open to a mischievous Yakuza Boss who invites them for a peaceful way to decide their feud: a sexual challenge for him to decide who is the better Girl Boss. Trapped, both are subject to the man's lust and sadistic assaults. They escape by joining forces against the yakuza gang, though it costs one of the young women her life - when she was friends already with her former enemy.

Oryu is wandering the country, training herself to reinstate her family name. With a written recommendation from Kumatora, she appears at the door of the Nishinomaru family. At the same time, the family is preparing for he gambling competition at the Netsuda Shrine Festival, which they have been hosting for generations. Meanwhile, the crooked Kinbara family is plotting to take over the competition. And now Oryu is forced to get involved in the struggle...

Female Demon Ohyaku is the first in a trilogy of films that are often considered a precursor to the Pinky Violence film that became very popular in 1970's Japan. This early one is filmed in black and white and so doesn't benefit from a striking colour scheme; but that really doesn't hold it back in the cinematography department as this film really is beautiful! Revenge is an extremely common Pinky theme and that is the one shown here.

Oryu catches the house dealer cheating with a swift hairpin launched at his hand and forces the boss to remove one of his fingers. In doing so she has saved the life of Fujimatsu (Kyosuke Machida) who was about to die for declaring the game a dishonest one but being unable to prove it. She gains a good friend, but also a number of enemies who soon track her down on the outskirts of town and try to kill her against a bright deep sunset. With her short sword she ably defends herself, but is still grateful for the assistance of a wandering swordsman who goes by the name of Naoki (played by Ninkyo-Eiga stalwart Ken Takakura) who just didn’t like the odds. As she journeys on she overhears a conversation in which she learns that the only loyal member of the Yano clan, Fugushin, appears to be in trouble and she goes to see what she can do to help him.

The industrual revolution comes to Japan with the introduction of the railroad system. This led to clashes between boatmen, whose livelihoods are threatened, and the railway construction workers. Oryu the Red Peony returns to her home in Kumamoto to accept her
her position as second generation leader of the Yano Family. But the ceremony is interrupted by fighting between local boatmen and railroad works. And it seems a rival family is pulling the strings behind the clashes.

Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter, the third in a series of five Stray Cat Rock films, stars hard-as-nails Meiko Kaji (Yakuza Burial, Female Convict Scorpion) as the leader of a gang of vicious teenage schoolgirls who get their kicks with gang fights, street muggings, and rock and roll.

Kankku's rating:
From Cinema Strikes Back:Teruo Ishii, brought in to replace Sex and Fury’s Norifumi Suzuki, was no stranger to the bizarre. He was a practitioner of the long-standing Japanese style known as “ero-guro” (erotic-grotesque). Ishii was a great admirer of the Japanese mystery/thriller writer Edogawa Rampo (say it fast), with movies like Yakuza Punishment: Lynch and Horror of Malformed Men to his credit. In Female Yakuza Tale, Reiko Ike reprises her role as tough female gambler Inoshika Ocho. Right off the bat, Ishii tries to match the earlier film’s nude fight in the snow by having an increasingly scantily-clad Ocho fights off an army of attackers in the rain (and eventually in the buff). Soon after, Ocho stumbles onto a plot masterminded by the Ogi yakuza clan to smuggle heroin by hiding it in the private parts of drug-addicted prostitutes, when she is mistaken for a courier by the vicious go-betweens who supervise the trade.

After escaping from an asylum, young medical student Hirosuke assumes the identity of a dead man in order to solve the mystery of a weird doppelganger whose picture he sees in the newspaper. Traveling to faraway Panorama Island, he discovers a mad scientist surgically remaking normal human beings into misshapen monsters…but that is only the beginning. Hirosuke soon learns the horrible truth about the island and his own family’s shameful past, and finds himself plunged into the depths of incest, murder, and madness.

When a famous politician's daughter is kidnapped, the police have to risk everything to solve the case and keep the matter quiet. A special trained female cop gets the assignment to infiltrate the gang. And she ruthlessly takes up her task. This outrageously violent gangster film is the forerunner of the well-known Japanese Zero Woman-series from the nineties, in which sexy cop Zero brings the toughest assignments to good ends. Where legal methods fail, Zero is called for the job!

apanese cult movie guru Teruo Ishii directs this deranged, over-the-top adaptation from the original manga by Kazuo Koike about a privileged samurai gang in charge of recruiting women for prostitution in old Edo's pleasure quarter. It's a perfect match for unapologetically decadent, phantasmagorical, softcore sex and bloody, sword-swinging sadism. Fascinating, brilliant and amoral, a tour through an ancient subculture obsessed with cruel, violent death and cruel, violent sex. Tetsuro Tanba is a standout as the hardboiled mercenary swordsman caught in the middle between the sex slave business, the corrupt Shogunate and rival gangs. When he goes into action, blood sprays, and heads and limbs fly!

Oryu is taken in by a former yakyuza boss. She promises to hide her yakuza background and work as a regular woman. Meanwhile, the workers rebel against new tax law, which forces the traders to bring in a yakuza family to settle the matter. Film boasts with the most complex script of the series.

After a life in reform school, Rika (Reiko Oshida) tries her hand at becoming a decent, upstanding citizen. But try as she might, she just can't get the hang of the straight life. She finds herself back in the big city where the hippie revolution has taken hold and psychedelics are the drugs of choice. Back on the streets, she meets up with her old reform schoolmates and becomes embroiled in an underworld full of gangsters and shifty kidnappers who have a taste for money and women. Now, Rika must rely on her two greatest assets - her beauty and her butt-kicking skills - to help her friends take brutal revenge!

This was the final entry in the Zubeko Bancho series, with sexy-and-sweet Reiko Oshida heading up a cast of gangster-girl wannabes in a go-go dancing maelstrom of Japanese music, fashion and kitsch. Truly a film that defies description, but imagine a Jack Hill production of Hair with an unsupervised Riot Girl cast, and you're starting to get the picture. The result is a delicious example of Japanese pop culture in high transition from the groovy '60s to the dangerous '70s.

Female bikers! Catfights! Gang violence! Sukeban Guerilla expands on classic exploitation "bad girl" archetypes with an explosive abandon. Fans of Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and Switchblade Sisters should brace themselves for the be-all, end-all and show-all of what's possible in the realms of grindhouse girls gone way-past-wild.

Tire of her boring life, Seiko makes off with the money taken from the bar she works at. Jiro steals a large sum of money from a gangster and runs away. The two have a chance meeting and hits it off right away because of their hatred toward the society and authority. With their newfound fortune, the pair lives their lives as they want. But when their past, society and authority catches up with them, the flame of youth is extinguished in a sea of violence...

Kankku's rating:
Reiko Ike stars as the daughter of a man who has been pushed into drug dealing by the local Yakuza mob. Having outlived his usefulness to the gang he is murdered and Reiko is gang raped, leading her to attempt a knife attack on the Yakuza boss (Ryoji Hayama) at a swank nightclub. Failing to kill him she ends up in prison, where she befriends a crew of other malcontents (including Yumiko Katayama and Chiyoko Kazama) and meets the Yakuza boss's girlfriend (Miki Sugimoto). Upon release Reiko reassembles her mob and launches a Machiavellian scheme to engineer a gang war between Hayama's Oba Industries and the formerly dominant Hamayasu Clan. The rival gangs begin killing each other off and Reiko works her way closer to her ultimate vengeance.

Kankku's rating:
The seventh chapter of the stunning Hibotan Bakuto series. Many years have passed since Oryu the Red Peony began her soul-searching journey after her father was killed. In her travels, she meets villagers whose crops and livelihoods are being destroyed by pollution from a local factory. They seem to work out an agreement, but Oryu must help the poor villagers when the greedy factory owner and corrupt politicians betray them...

A classic exploitation movie from 1974 that shows Norifumi Suzuki's lush visual style at its peak. A young woman joins a convent where sexual abstinence is required and straying from the path of god is severely punished. Features lots of bare breasts and several whipping scenes. The general mood is pretty similar to that of the Female Convict: Scorpion and Zero Woman series.

Wild Jumbo is the second film in the series and it feels oddly out of place with the rest of the films in the series. The plot is essentially a group of teens looking for a good time, rolling white folks, & stealing money from the wrong people which ultimately leads to their demise. The film was directed by Toshiya Fujita who’s visual and musical decisions are in direct contrast to that of director Yasuharu Hasebe and it's noticeable. One plus about the film is seeing Meiko Kaji playing a more light hearted character that parades around in a bikini.

Kankku's rating:
The final chapter of the Hibotan Bakuto series. Oryu the Red Peony visits an old dying Boss of an ally family and promised her that she would help guide the new Boss. Meanwhile a turf war breaks out. When the family is betrayed from within and the rival family becomes violent, Oryu takes things into her own hands…

Three strangers carrying a package with LSD are pursued by two rival gangs’ one lead by Meiko Kaji and the other lead by Eiji Go. Running in the backdrop is a back-story where a woman in wheel chair who is played by Bunjyaku Han is kidnapped by Kaji’s gang to force the hand of Eiji Go (who has a personal connection to the woman) and his henchmen. Every scene with the woman in the wheel chair comes with an odd organ piece that sounds like something one would hear at church in choir.

Kankku's rating:
Yasuharu Hasebe developed and directed this first installment in a five-film series dealing with the adventures of all-girl motorcycle gangs. Mei, leader of an all-girl biker gang, inadvertently gets involved with a yakuza group's plot to rig boxing matches because of her boyfriend and a rival gang. When the yakuza tortures and kills some of her members, she comes out of hiding and, with the help of a loner named Ako, seeks revenge.

Kankku's rating:
A look at the lives of a troupe of geishas working in a small seaside resort town. For the most part, their lives consist of greeting boatloads of oversexed businessmen and providing bawdy entertainment through the evening followed by private companionship at night, interspersed with occasional catfights with the rival geisha house. Their routine is suddenly thrown off by the appearance of an abandoned baby in the geishas' dormitory, followed by its disappearance only a short time later. Who could be responsible for such a thing?

After a cool opening abstract action scene, we are treated to the sight of farmers being oppressed, kidnapped and murdered by the local ruling elite who are running a black market tobacco ring. Investigating this is Mr. Makebe a medium ranking samurai who writes down all the misdeeds of his compatriots and strangely attempts, on his own, to convince the leader Judayu to stop his criminal operation before the central government finds out. Judayu doesn't go along with this idea, captures Mr. Makebe and subjects him to a water wheel torture to find out where the document is hidden. When this doesn't produce results, Judayu tricks Makebe's wife and daughter, Okatsu, to his house where they are threatened with rape in front of Makebe. Mrs Makebe is thrown into a cage with grunting criminals who try to rape her but Okatsu, who we've seen perfect a special technique in sword fighting class earlier, breaks free and battles the minions of Judayu. In the mêlée Mr. Makebe kills himself and his wife but not before telling Okatsu where the document is hidden. Okatsu's sword instructor shows up and tricks her into letting her guard down then knocks her out. The evil Judayu rapes Okastu but she won't reveal where the document is hidden. Judayu then enlists the help of Okatsu's pathetic fiancé who helps Okatsu to "escape" only to see if she goes for the document. She gets it and goes on a quest for revenge against Judayu while being tailed by her fiancé.

The film opens with the oppression and murder of poor farmers by the minions of the city commissioner. An old woman is saved by Rui, a young plucky swordswoman who wears a miniskirt of sorts. Rui hides the old woman in a dojo where we meet Okatsu. Okatsu is the adopted daughter of a well respected sword instructor. Okatsu is an excellent swordswoman and overshadows the clumsy real son of her adopted father. The son leaves in anger with his pregnant wife. Unfortunately the son, Rintaro, is a gambling addict and he loses all his money during a crooked dice game. Okatsu trades herself to the gambling den boss for her brother but the boss is in league with the local city commissioner who hates Okatsu's father for getting in the way of his evil ambition in the past. Okatsu's father exchanges himself so Okatsu can go free but the commissioner reneges and rapes Okatsu while her father is being beaten and stabbed to death. Later she escapes and slaughters the gambling house thugs aided by Rui, whose intentions are not very clear. Outside, Okatsu plans her revenge while the commissioner plans to have her caught by a bounty hunter played by Tomisaburo Wakayama.

Her failed attempt at stabbing Sugimi on the steps of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Headquarters results in her doing hard time in a female prison run by sadistic and horny male guards. To Sugimi's surprise, Matsushima refuses to testify against him and his connections to the mob, and now the sheer fact that she knows such secrets makes her a liability.

The fifth part of this fun series. This one features Miki Sugimoto as the prostitute with the strong vagina muscles. Her vagina strenght is legendary, so many men come to the hot springs to try her out! As per usual there are lots of boobies and silly situations.

Matsu, known to the prisoners as Scorpian, is locked away in the bowels of the prison as revenge for disrupting the smooth operation of the prison and for her disfiguring attack on the warden. Granted a one day reprieve due to the visit of a dignitary, she takes advantage and attacks the warden again. This leads to more brutal punishment and humiliation. But the punishment gives her an oppurtunity to escape along with six other female prisoners. Their surreal flight from prison pits the convicts against the guards, the warden and each other.

Pinky Violence is a film genre that developed out of the Japanese New Wave in the late sixties and blossomed into it’s own during the early seventies. The term came from the way the films mixed the erotic elements found in Pink Films (a.k.a. Roman Porno) with the action and violence found in Yakuza crime films. They are often grouped in with sexploitation films because of their excessive nudity, over the top gore and low budget production.

These films have influenced many Western directors such as Russ Meyer, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.
