Blind Woman's Curse

Category: Pink Films



Stunning 70’s cult siren Meiko Kaji, star of the LADY SNOWBLOOD, FEMALE 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 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, as well as also
being one of the first genre-bending “jidai geki” movies that started a trend.
