I am really p*ssed off!
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The British may have their video nasties, but the Japanese "pink" is much more exciting.

Sachiko (Miki Sugimoto from the Red Handcuffs episode of Zero Woman) is the leader of a girl gang from Tokyo. We aren't 5 minutes into the film when she is unzipping her leather to show a flower tat covering her entire left breast to a group of harassing males, which the gang dispatches quickly. I thought that may be the leaders sign, but later in Kyoto all the gang is topless with the same tat which they are applying to a new member - a nun.

The nunsploitation angle continues as they take pictures of a nun getting a real religious lesson from a monk and use them for blackmail.

There is a lot of fighting in the flick - mostly girl on girl - and that leads to some ripped blouses, of course. There is also a whole lot of sex, as one of the gang members seems to want it frequently.

But, the thrust of the film is the girl's constant scrapes with a yakuza gang, and after losing a friend to a yakuza knife, she gets even more determined to do something, which ends up in a stunning scene of torture.

Sugimoto does a good job and has help from some other good actresses in this wildly entertaining sexploitation film that has elements of nunsploitation, torture, golden showers, and even a little incest.
