Abe Sada: Based on the true story of Sada Abe who is remembered in Japan for erotically asphyxiating her lover, Kichiso Ashida on May 18 1936 and then cutting off his penis and testicles and carrying them around with her in her handbag. The story became a national sensation.
Street of Joy: In 1950s Tokyo, the authorities have decreed that the city's brothels are to be closed down. Street of Joy - one of the most successful of Nikkotsu's famous 'romantic porno' movies - chronicles the activities of the prostitutes in one such establishment, on the day before the law comes into effect.
Watcher in the Attic: The landlord of a boarding house in 1923 Tokyo, is keen on spying on the bizarre close encounters taking place beneath his roof. One day he sees a prostitute killing a customer, and decides he's found his soulmate.
Gate Of Flesh: A lurid tale of the Tokyo underworld from the great Japanese studio director Seijun Suzuki ('Branded to Kill', 'Tokyo Drifter'). After the end of WWII, a gang of prostitutes make their base in an abandoned building and take a vow to punish anyone who gives away sex for free. But when a handsome thief takes refuge in their home, the women find their dedication to the vow severely tested and begin whipping each other up into a hellcat frenzy which can only end in tragedy.
