A slice of glorious 70’s Japanese action for Cinema Bizarre this month with a rare chance to see Toshiya’s blood-soaked revenge tale on the big screen!
Born in prison, trained by a priest to be a lethal assassin, the only thing on Yuki Kashima’s mind is to wage terrible vengeance on the people who killed her family. Based on the Manga comic Shurayukihime and one of the main inspirations for Tarantino’s Kill Bill, it’s easy to see why this film has become a bonafide cult classic.
