FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION: BEAST STABLE

Shun'ya Itô, Japan, 1973, Arrow Films

The four-film FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION cycle charts the vengeance of Nami Matsushima (Meiko Kaji, LADY SNOWBLOOD, the STRAY CAT ROCK series), who becomes an avatar of survival and an unlikely symbol of female resistance in a male-dominated world. Spiritual kin to MS. 45, COFFY and THE BRIDE WORE BLACK!

“The third film in the series, and last by itsoriginal director, BEAST STABLE is the most horror-tinged entry, and arguably the most violent. Nami, having escaped from prison in JAILHOUSE 41, befriends a lonely sex worker and incurs the wrath of a yakuza gang led by a former nemesis, the sadistic and power-mad Katsu—a grand guignol creation clad in black feathers who has sworn vengeance on Scorpion.” (Japan Society)
