Movie Info

Female Yakuza Tale - Inquisition And Torture is an anarchistic apex in the career of Japanese cult director, Teruo Ishii, whose fifty year resume includes Horror of Malformed Men and Blind Beast Vs. Killer Dwarf. Notoriously lacking restraint, sexy 'pinky violence' star, Reiko Ike, returns in this gonzo sequel to Sex & Fury following the further exploits of Ocho, a thief and gambler running afoul of evil yakuza in Meiji Era Tokyo. Aided by a lone wolf adventurer (Ryohei Uchida), Ocho investigates a ruthless gang of cutthroats who are using indentured prostitutes as drug mules to smuggle heroin from China. Director Ishii throws everything but the kitchen sink into this mind-altering sexploitation action saga, all culminating in a bloody mobster massacre replete with sultry swordswomen. Full of intoxicating mayhem and uproarious kabuki-striptease antics, Female Yakuza Tale - Inquisition & Torture is freak-out filmmaking at its finest!

Audience Reviews for Female Yakuza Tale - Inquisition and Torture


After just watching the final battle in Female Yakuza Tale I am just blown away. It was a colorful and bloody spectacle of a torch that could've easily have been handed down by Mario Bava. It's also one of the silliest things and a prime example of the term "Theater of the Absurd." Revenge is about to be dispensed in abundance. About 30 naked Japanese women--most of whom are getting spattered with fake blood, pissing on their fallen adversaries and some of them doing comical little victory dances. A perfect bookend to the badass Ocho ending up in a naked swordfight during the opening credits. These two scenes in conjunction with the fantastic direction make it impossible not to forgive all the other nonsense from the sexploitation plot. I loved Female Yakuza Tale so much more than its predecessor Sex and Fury. More entertaining than good and definitely has to be seen to be believed.

This is kind of a sequel to Sex and Fury, but only in that it has the same main character. It's crazier, but for some reason I just didn't like it as much as the first one. I did like, however, the reference they threw in there to Scorpion from the Female Prisoner Scorpion moves. Overall it was really cool, just not as cool as Sex and Fury.
