About the film
Stunning 70's cult siren Meiko Kaji, star of the LADY SNOWBLOOD, FEMALE CONVICT SCORPION and STRAY CAT ROCK films, blasts off in her first headlining role! A novice yakuza boss in early 20th century Japan, she must defend her clan against a vengeful blind swordswoman (Hoki Tokuda), her bizarre hunchback servant (Tatsumi Hijikata), as well as villain Toru Abe's gang of bloodthirsty killers.
Director Teruo Ishii (FEMALE YAKUZA TALE, HORROR OF MALFORMED MEN) delivers a bizarre hybrid of Japanese horror and yakuza genres featuring a nomadic terror carnival, girls skinned alive for their tattooed epidermis, and a succession of brutal swordfights. Actress Kaji offers prime evidence of why she became the top female action star of 1970's Japan. One of the key cult films from Nikkatsu, the studio that also released the unforgettable, offbeat hit TOKYO DRIFTER.
Gruesomely violent, compelling and beautiful. I LOVE this movie!Published 1 month ago by Paula McElroy
Blind Woman's Curse is a unique Yakuza-themed movie starring Meiko Kaji. She plays Akemi, who is jailed for 3 years after avenging her father who happens to be Yakuza. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Ruined
Unfortunately- I was not able to watch this film because of the region. The region was not posted on Amazon so I did not realize this before purchasing it. Very annoying. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Jennie C Portney
Great performances all around and it really makes you appreciate Meiko Kaji's work as an actress. If you're not familiar with her, give it a shot.Published on January 8, 2013 by Michael D. King
