Perhaps Meiko Kaji's most iconic role, Nami "Scorpion" Matsushima was created by Toru Shinohara for an adult manga, and has been the subject of many remakes, but Kaji will always remain the original and the best. The third film in the series, and last by original director Shunya Ito, Beast Stable is the most horror-tinged entry, and arguably the most violent. Nami, having escaped from prison in episode #2, 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.

1973, 87 min., Blu-ray, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Shunya Ito. With Meiko Kaji, Mikio Narita, Reisen Lee.

Part of Cruel Beauty: A Romantic Weekend with Meiko Kaji.
