In Meiji-era Tokyo there are no rules, and Ocho (Reiko Ike) is back, reprising her role from notorious cult director Teruo Ishii's SEX AND FURY. Ocho is a dangerous fighter, gambler, and thief whose clothing is often in danger of falling off, and this film is equal to its predecessor in the sheer volume of its blood, sex, and mayhem. When Ocho is kidnapped by a drug trafficking ring, she plans a dangerous escape, and aided by a mysterious loner (Ryohei Uchida), she investigates the gang's activities. They are engaged in smuggling heroin into the country by using as mules women forced into prostitution. Inevitably, Ocho must face off with the brutal Yakuzas and their equally deadly, beautiful swordswomen. A clear reference point for Quentin Tarantino's KILL BILL series, this anarchistic filmmaking foray represents the apex of the director's 50-year career, during which he produced such gems as HORROR OF MALFORMED MEN and BLIND BEAST VS. KILLER DWARF.
