Sad And Somewhat Sleazy Pinku Entry...
8 January 2007 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

CRUELTY: BLACK ROSE TORTURE isn't the most notable pinku film out there, but the storyline is actually a bit more engaging and emotionally-involving than most of the typical shallow and sleazy story lines (and that's not saying that "shallow and sleazy" is a bad thing - on the contrary, I LOVE those kinds of films...), while still giving the exploit fan the "goods" that they've come to expect from this sort of film.

Yumiko and her maid are on their way to see her brother who the pair haven't seen in over a year. Yumiko's brother is embroiled in some sort of revolutionary group (to the disdain of the government) and the maid has a pretty big crush on the brother. During the train-ride, the maid is raped by an Officer. Upon meeting with Yumiko's brother - he is quickly made to go on the run when the cops come a-knockin' due to his underground political affiliation. The cops take the two women hostage and "interrogate" them by beating and raping them. The women are eventually freed when Yumiko gives up her brother's whereabouts. Cut to two years later, and Yumiko's brother has been reformed by the government and is now a soldier. Yumiko has become insane with grief and guilt, and the maid is the only one holding the home together. A shady Officer (who was the maid's previous train-rapist) makes a deal with her, that if she willingly gives her body to the local officers, he will call Yumiko's brother back from duty. This eventually happens after the brother loses his sight in the war. Upon his homecoming, things are not as happy as may have been expected, and things end badly for everyone involved...

Pinku fans that only dig the really sleazy material probably won't get a whole lot from CRUELTY: BLACK ROSE TORTURE. This is definitely another example of a pinku film where the name is a bit more risqué than the actual film portrays. Don't get me wrong - there is the requisite nudity, rape, and misogynistic "torture" - but those elements definitely take a back-seat to the pretty "heavy" storyline. A good film overall if you're in the mood for a headier piece of exploit cinema, and will definitely be of interest to hardcore pinku fans...7.5/10
