WATCH THE TRAILER
Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood) plays Akemi, the leader of the Tachibana clan. When Akemi blinds the daughter of one of her enemies, a cat appears and licks at the blood. Stalked by the blinded victim and the cat, members of Akemi’s gang start turning up dead, with their dragon tattoos skinned from their backs. A delirious mix of yakuza, samurai and grotesque.
