Movie Info

"The Legend of the Poisonous Seductress" saga begins with this bloody tale of an actress who seeks vengeance against her tormentors after being wrongly imprisoned. Ohyaku (Junko Miyazono) was just an innocent actress when she was accused of a crime that she didn't commit. Subsequently thrown into prison and brutalized by her fellow inmates at every turn, the once fragile girl is gradually transformed into a sword-wielding warrior whose back is adorned with a maniacal demon. Now, her blade clenched firmly in clinched fists, Ohyaku sets out on a violent quest to cut down anyone and everyone who ever dared cross her. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Yôen Dokufuden Hannya no Ohyaku (Ohyaku: The Female Demon)

Godmother of the Pinky Violence genre of Japanese films, this is quite legitimately good, with most of the salaciousness and violence all in the last third. Respectable.

For a Pinky Violence movie (admittedly one of the first) there wasn't as much sleaze as the later ones had. Female Demon Ohyaku is pretty much a straight up revenge tale. The first half hour is great (the opening scene alone...), the second act is pretty weak but when Ohyaku finally gets her revenge the good times start rolling. This movie is beautifully shot and Junko Miyazono was stunning,. Oh, and Bunzo kicked ass...!
