Yuko Moriyama stars in this ninja period piece as one of seven women determined to exact revenge on the evil lord Akinari Katou and "The 7 Spears", the band of soldiers he commands. Trained assassins and skilled in sorcery, these men took over the Aizu prefecture and took its most beautiful young women as concubines. When they left, they left behind seven daughters, who have now sought out the sword-master Jyubei Yagyuu to help them discover their own power so that they exact their own revenge.

Ninja Cervix Suck
23 March 2020 | by ThyDavidethSee all my reviews

A bunch of lady ninjas must kill a bunch of demons for some reason. It is suspect but I think Kunoichi: The Lady Ninja is a very loose remake of 1983 film Legend Of The 8 Samurai or maybe a straight adaption of some Japanese novel called 8 Dog Chronicles. I don't know and I don't care. Kunoichi is a frantic action fantasy film. This film is caulked full of bizarre crap like weird characters with weird mystical techniques like lightning hooters and some broad who can absorb magic through her c··· and spit out fireballs. There is also some of eroticism with drug induced (?) orgies and rape. Yay. The action is reminiscent of early to mid 90s Hong Kong Wuxia Pian added lots of dismemberment and gore which is happy fun. Though the pacing is brisk, the story is disjointed as all hell which only adds to this films lunacy. It's a messy, incoherent movie but it's insanely fun with enough crackhead s··· to choke an elephant.
