Product Description

In the final episode of the LEGENDS OF THE POISONOUS SEDUCTRESS series, Junko Miyazono appears one final time as beautiful swordswoman Okatsu the Avenger, but this time seeking Judayu, a corrupt merchant responsible for the death of her parents. Betrayed by her fiancé, Okatsu finds herself aided in her quest by a handsome stranger (yakuza film star Tatsuo Umemiya) who happens to be as handy with a sword as she is! What is the reason for his kindness, and will Okatsu be able to prevail against Judayu, now a powerful businessman with scores of allies in high places? Whatever the end may be, the restless spirits of her murdered parents drive OKATSU THE FUGITIVE along her crimson-colored road of vengeance. Master filmmaker Nobuo Nakagawa (Jigoku, Snake Woman s Curse) brings audiences the stunning end of the trilogy that inspired countless imitators among Toei s Pinky Violence films of the 1970s.

Be sure to collect the other two volumes in the LEGENDS OF THE POISONOUS SEDUCTRESS series FEMALE DEMON OHYAKU and QUICK-DRAW OKATSU for more action-packed female swordplay excitement!

This is a great samurai (chambara/jidai-geki) film, filled with loads of swordplay, villainy, and heroism. I'm quite confused as to why the film distributors labeled this film as "pinky violence." Those seeking "pinky violence" will be quite disappointed, as this film is no more "pinky violence" than any of a score of regular samurai films.

The hero of this film is a samurai swordswoman on the path of revenge to avenge the death of her parents by corrupt clan members. Miyazono Junko is fabulous as the expert swordswoman O-Katsu. After her parents' torture and deaths, she wanders the countryside seeking vengeance and, on the way, uses her flashing sword to save helpless people from various villains. Great film, especially for those (such as myself) who are tired from the weeping, wafting, helpless females that infect too many films all over the world. O-Katsu provides an example of a strong woman who can take care of herself as she seeks righteousness.

They say the third time's the charm. Some think this phrase originated with Shakespeare, although that's uncertain. What is certain is that Okatsu the Fugitive, the third movie in the Tales of the Poisonous Seductress series, could have used some Shakespearean talent in the script department. It's a very good looking film, but the fact that it's essentially a retread of the same story told in the first two movies in the series makes the phrase "been there, done that," more apropos.

Once again, the beautiful Junko Miyazono stars as a swordswoman named Okatsu, although she isn't the same character named Okatsu who she played in the previous film. Confused? Me too. I don't get it. I even wonder if the normally accepting Japanese audience of 1969 got it. Perhaps this odd choice contributed to the demise of the Toei studios series.

Once again, a young woman's family is tortured and killed in front of her and she vows revenge. That was a hell of a lot of fun the first time around, and in some ways perfected for the second film. Here, it just feels like a half-assed retread. Still, I think this movie would be a lot more fun if I hadn't recently seen the other two. It isn't terrible. It just doesn't break any new ground.

Director Nobuo Nakagawa is back and this time around he stages and shoots scenes much more conservatively than in the second film. That works wonders for the fight scenes because they retain a lucidity that more ambitious camera work would have destroyed. Nakagawa really works wonders with the close-quarters sword fights. I also liked the exterior shots that were actually played on location. They open up the film by removing it from the typical stage-bound locations and really lets all of the scenes breathe.

Okatsu The Fugitive is the final chapter of the Leagends Of ThePoisonous Seductress trilogy. Okatsu now finds herself a wanted woman from various samurai clans. Along the way, she befriends a trusting swordsman and together, they fought and slew Okatsu's enemies. I recommend the entire three-part DVD set to any fan of classic Japanese bad-girl films.
