SHOGUN’S JOYS OF TORTURE

Teruo Ishii, Japan, 1968, Arrow Films, Cult

“More polished than films of this type outside of Japan with its colorful art direction, polished cinematography and death-march soundtrack.” -- Jasper Sharp, MIDNIGHT EYE

From the outrageous imagination of cult director Teruo Ishii (HORRORS OF MALFORMED MEN) comes this infamous omnibus! SHOGUN’S JOYS OF TORTURE features three shocking tales of crime and punishment, all based on documented cases from antiquity. Vehemently denounced by the critics of the day, the film set a new benchmark for sex, sadism, and depravity in Japanese exploitation, with Ishii staging his elaborate methods with an unmatched verve and inventiveness.
