Female Prisoner Scorpion: Jailhouse 41 (1972)

Available on Amazon Prime | imdb | trailer

To set the tone, let’s start with one of my favorite weirdo films. I got to see a 35 mm screening of this straight up exploitation masterpiece at the Philadelphia Film Festival back in the early 2000s. Bizarre dream sequences and crazy camerawork abound in Jailhouse 41, the standout of the four part “Scorpion” film series. It is also, what I believe to be, the best action movie to ever come out of Japan.

Available on Blu-ray via Arrow
