Set in 1939 during the Japanese siege of China--a cataclysmic eight-year massacre mission in which at least 23 million Chinese died--Red Angel tells the story of Nurse Nishi, as she is introduced to maniacal, primitive combat medicine and its human fallout. At her first posting, Nishi is raped by recovering soldiers, but her complaints to the head nurse fall on deaf ears. Stationed next in a nightmarish field hospital that does little more than perform amputations and put grievously wounded soldiers out of their misery, Nishi has clandestine affairs with amputee Pvt. Orihara, and kind Dr. Okabe. By turns horrified and cynical about the ripple effects of imperial war, and suffused with cultural guilt, the film is one of the most brutal portraits of war ever filmed, leveling a finger not at war itself, but at the mentality of the people who wage it

Yasuzo Masumura's tale of feminine revenge and '60s Grrrl power in old Japan. This 'Pinku Eiga' (pink cinema) classic deals with a young woman abused by male society who exacts a gruesome revenge. Otsuya (Ayako Wakao) is a young woman of some breeding who is abducted into service at the Geisha house of Gonji. This leads to a less than favourable run-in with some highly unsavoury male characters the likes of which a girl of her breeding has never seen. When deranged 'irezumi' (tattoo) artist, Seikichi (Gaku Yamamoto) get his eyes on her, he thinks he has found the canvass he's been looking for all his life. With the greatest care and using all the skills he has at his fingertips, he needles a huge spider tattoo on her upper back - a tattoo being the ultimate affront to Japanese society. Gradually, Otsuya finds herself morphing into a low-class predator in the mould of the ones who have brought her to this, and starts taking her deadly revenge on male society, using her fine looks to lure them into her web of carnage
