Being made in 1967 it's naturally a bit low on horror by which I mean blood or even gore. But that doesn't mean that it isn't watchable. The overall look reminded me a bit of Hitchcock. It's filmed in a rather special way because some shots are in black and white and others are in colour, for you to find out why.
But the story still works nowadays. A girl being raped at the age of sixteen got infected by syphilis. She (Michiko Aoyama)becomes a doctor and is out for revenge. Of course it all works out perfectly until she met another doctor (Ahihiko Kaminara).
The thing I was surprised by was the use of nudity for a flick being made in 1967. All the girls in this flick do show their breasts. Back then in Japan that was a thing not done, even today private parts are mostly blurred.
There's only one actor here (Yuichi Minato) who made it into the scene outside Japan. He was seen in a few Takashi Miike flicks like Fudoh (1996) and Dead Or Alive 2 (2000) as the head of the orphanage.
A classic in Japan, a pure revenge flick with a little twist, but if you go watch it place it in the time being made.
