Horror of Malformed Men and Blind Woman's Curse director Teruo Ishii shifts his focus from tormented mutants to sword-swinging samurais with this outrageous, blood-spattered adaptation of an original manga by Lone Wolf and Cub creator Kazuo Koike. Tetsuro Tanba (Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs) stars as a hardened mercenary swordsman who becomes hopelessly caught between a gang of privileged samurais charged with recruiting prostitutes to work in old Edo's pleasure quarter, the barbaric Shogunate, and the rival gangs locked into a violent struggle for power.
