Arrow Films loves exploitation flicks, and their latest addition to the Arrow archives is quite possibly one of the genre’s crowning achievements. It’s called Female Prisoner Scorpion and it stars the legendary Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood) in a film that inspired later cult classics like Kill Bill and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.
This is trash cinema at it’s purest, and Arrow is delivering Female Prisoner Scorpion in a glorious box set that includes the original and its sequels.
