Female Convict Scorpion- The Baddest Bitch

After witnessing the unparalleled badness of Meiko Kaji this weekend in 1972's 'Female Convict Scorpion: Jailhouse 41', I am firmly convinced that she is one of the toughest and coolest females ever to grace the silver screen. Many American film fanatics are unfortunately unenlightened as to grace and elegance with which Meiko Kaji can end the life of a deserving scumbag Yakuza. She is a silent and delicious killing machine- striking swiftly and efficiently, leaving men quivering or dead in a pool of their own blood. She is simply amazing. Even after wasting a room full of scum, she looks fantastic...




This is one of the most bad-ass films I have seen in a very long time. It is surreal, filled with nudity, extreme violence, delicious rape, gore, awesome music, and Arthouse style. Meiko Kaji utters maybe 5 words in the entire film, yet she is always captivating and mesmerizing. She could kill you with her glare.

There are three other 'Female Scorpion' films. 'Female Convict Scorpion: Jailhouse 41'(the second one in the series) has definately been my favorite thus far (I have yet to see 'Female Prisoner Scorpion: #701's Grudge Song')...

This fantastic series started out in 1972 with 'Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion'. This would be the ideal film to start with. Behold the badness in the trailer below...




You need to see these films immediately- they will make you a cooler person. Not only that; but by viewing these fantastic films, you will get to see one of Mr. Tarantino's favorite places to 'borrow' ideas from...
