The most gory ninja film of its era is now on video for the first time ever. Based on the works of Goseki Kojima, the artist behind the legendary Lone Wolf and Cub, the tale spins topless crossbow vixens, haunted temples and an assortment of severed limbs into a tapestry of colorful violence.

Hideki Takahashi (The Last Samurai) plays Rokuheita, an enforcer for the Yagyu ninja clan.  When his sister commits suicide as a result of his actions, Rokuheita considers his choices and eventually deserts the organization. Hunted by an army of bizarre shadow warriors that includes veteran actor Isao Nasuyagi, the target turns on his pursuers when he finds something worth fighting for. 

“You’d better have a strong stomach if you go to see this one.” – Howard Thompson, NY Times
