Blind Woman's Curse [ DVD & Blu-ray ]

Blind Woman's Curse [ DVD & Blu-ray ]

Meiko Kaji stars in this 1970s Japanese cult action film from director Teruo Ishii. In a swordfight with a rival clan, Yakuza boss Akemi Tachibana (Kaji) slices Aiko Gouda (Hoki Tokuda)'s eyes, blinding her, and a mysterious cat shows up to lick the bloody wound. Afterward, Aiko and clan leader Dobashi (Tôru Abe) seek vengeance.

A bizarre blend of the female Yakuza film and traditional Japanese ghost story, with a strong dash of grotesque-erotica (the same movement was a sensibility of Edogawa Rampo whose works were adapted by Ishii in Horrors of Malformed Men), Blind Woman s Curse is a delirious mash-up of classic genre tropes, to which Ishii was no stranger having directed everything from Super Giant films to Biker movies!
