You can go to heaven with this.

Attacked as she was bathing, Ochô was forced to defend herself against a group intent on her death - outside in the snow! Her magnificent swordplay was enhanced by her nakedness, and soon her creamy white breasts were stained in blood. Creamy white breasts appear in this film more often than swords.

There are familiar faces for viewers of pinky violence films like Girl Boss Guerilla and the nunsploitation film School of the Holy Beast (Yuki - Rie Saotome). The director of this film wrote and directed both.

Christina gets more action than anyone; even girl-on-girl with Jun Midorikawa.

Yuki manages to get herself into a situation where she is raped by Iwakura and made into a nympho by some magic cream. He is soon to get his in a most clever way, when Ochô finds out he was one of the three men responsible for her father's murder.

There is even some nunsploitation in this film as Ochô goes after the second murderer. Ochô is captured by the nun bodyguards, taken to a convent and severely whipped. It is here that she learns the identity of the third murderer - a shocking surprise.

Toshiro Mifune never looked so dashing as Ochô in her final battle. Weakened by the torture and with two bullets in her, she managed to spill buckets of blood in pursuit of her objective.

Brilliant cinematography in this pinky violence classic.
