Starring Meiko Kaji (LADYSNOWBLOOD) and directed by genre veterans Yasuharu Hasebe (MASSACRE GUN, RETALIATION) and Toshiya Fujita (LADY SNOWBLOOD), the STRAY CAT ROCK series features a psychedelic mix of girl gangs, bikers, sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll and plenty of ass-kicking. It’s all captured in a delirious mash-up of pop-art aesthetics including split screens, freeze frames, frenetic editing, and dizzying angles, making these films a riotous joy from beginning to end. In series fan favorite SEX HUNTER, the gang go up against rival male gang The Eagles. Naturally, sex and explosive violence erupt! Plus, there’s some real-deal themes of racial injustice in the mix, giving this film a substantive weight.
