Hiroshi Noguchi, Japan, 1965, Arrow Films, Action

“The eccentric hitmen pile on with gimmicks worthy of the 1960s BATMAN show and the plot moves with the frantic energy of kids making shit up on the playground.”
-- Reifferschizzle, LETTERBOXD

Nikkatsu, the oldest film studio in Japan, inaugurated a star system in the late 1950s, finding talent and contracting them to a series of wild genre pictures. These “Diamond Guys” films are relatively new to the U.S., and feature Nikkatsu’s leading talent at the peak of their game. When the mysterious “Joe of Spades” executes one of the bosses of a powerful syndicate, his colleagues -- fearing for their own lives -- call on the services of assassin agency Murder Unincorporated to take care of the problem. This unique entry showcases some of the most peculiar killing tactics to ever hit Japanese cinema!
