Japanese maverick filmmaker Teruo Ishii is hardly a household name in the US – or Japan for that matter – but his films, with their pulp energy and sometimes grotesque imagery, really deliver the goods. This is perhaps the best Yakuza Revenge/Ghost Cat movie ever made, and the presence of Meiko Kaji (LADY SNOWBLOOD) in the lead role pushes the whole enterprise into delirium territory.
