Blind Woman’s Curse

Stunning 70’s cult siren Meiko Kaji, star of the LADY SNOWBLOODFEMALE CONVICT SCORPION and STRAY CAT ROCK films, blast 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 macabre hunchback servant (Tatsumi Hijikata), as well as villain Toru Abe’s gang of bloodthirsty killers.
Director Teruo Ishii (FEMALE YAKUZA TALEHORROR 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, as well as also being one of the first genre-bending “jidai geki” movies that started a trend.
