Female Convict Scorpion: Jailhouse 41

VENUE: The Arts House Screening Room
DATE & TIME: 5 June 2015, 7:45pm
RATING: R21 (Some Nudity & Violence)
COST: Free admission

This June, we will be exploring the strange world of Japanese Pink films. Pinky Violence is a film genre that gained prominence in the Japanese film industry in the late 1960s and blossomed through till the late 1970s. The term is coined when erotic elements in Pink films (Japanese theatrical film that includes nudity) fused with violence typical of Yakuza crime flicks. Pinky Violence films have influenced many Western directors, namely Russ Meyer and Quentin Tarantino.


SCUM Cinema will be paying tribute to one of the best from the genre – Female Convict Scorpion: Jailhouse 41!

Director: Shunya Ito | Cast: Meiko Kaji, Fumio Watanabe, Kayoko Shiraishi
1972 \ 90min \ Japan \ R21 (Consumer advice: Some nudity & violence)

This classic Japanese psychosexual B-movie effort brings popular adult manga by Toru Shinohara to life in a frenzy of slashing and gore. This over-the-top jailbreak film pits an attractive young female prisoner, Scorpion (Meiko Kaji – whose singing talents featured on the Kill Bill soundtrack), against a sadistic warden and other adversaries! No one is secure when Scorpion stalks the wings with vengeance in mind.
