Carol J. Clover,
As sadomasochistic yakuza enforcer Kakihara searches for his missing boss he comes across Ichi, a repressed and psychotic killer who may be able to inflict levels of pain that Kakihara has only dreamed of.
More commonly known as CAPTURED FOR SEX 2, this is a well made tale of sexual abuse and torture done with gallons of style and some buckets of money.
A couple, driving through the country, meet a sadist who abducts them and subjects them to various forms of carnal horseplay. Being Japanese, the inevitable happens: The boyfriend of the couple becomes the apprentice of the sadist and the two men abuse the woman together.
The climax is wonderfully audacious and downright evil. The "victim" is suspended in an elaborate rope web strung between two trees in the woods.
Little-seen but never forgotten, this slick masterpiece was directed by not one but four people who used a collective pseudonym to produce other films of this ilk, but none eclipse the savage perfection of this.
