Bohachi Bushido: Code Of The Forgotten Eight (Porno Jidaigeki: Bohachi Bushido) (1973)
There's plenty of sleaze, swords, and red stuff in this samurai opus helmed by Teruo Ishii ("Horrors of Malformed Men"). In the time of the Edo shogunate, a no-nonsense warrior (Tetsuro Tamba) gets caught up in the web of violence and sadism that ensnares beautiful women recruited for the sex trade. "Lone Wolf and Cub" creator Kazuo Koike's manga serves as the basis for this perverse "pinky violence" outing; Yuriko Hishimi, Goro Ibuki co-star. 81 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Japanese; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; interviews. In Japanese with English subtitles.
