Kaji Meiko is at her gorgeous, formidable best in arguably the greatest “lady of vengeance” movie ever made. A huge influence on Quentin Tarantino – so much so he uses the film’s theme song (sung by Kaji) in Kill Bill, it is the story of a young woman who is born into the world to become an instrument of revenge, to seek out and kill those who raped and murdered her parents and brother. It’s a classic exploitation film and a delightful late night pleasure. The recent Blu-ray release of the film from Arrow Video is also incredible.
