WILD Japan Cinema! “Pinky Violence”! Amazing Cult Exploitation Madness!

“Sex! Trash! DYNAMITE!”

How can you go wrong with a poster like this? What exactly is going on here? There seems to be some “trouble” at the school…

INTRODUCING “PINKY VIOLENCE!”

Trouble indeed! Time to look at a Japanese trend in the 70’s that blew the doors off of exploitation films and introduced the world to “pinky violence!”

Warning: some of these movie posters feature nudity!

In the 60’s and 70’s, the Japanese had a category of movie known as the “Pink film”, a term used to categorize a wide variety of Japanese films with adult content.

These movies were, for the most part, action thrillers with a certain amount of nudity and sexual situations…but they were NOT pornography! Think of them as drive-in style, “R”-rated morality tales – with a Japanese twist!

Female Empowerment – At A Price!

These movies were wildly entertaining with LOTS of action – usually highlighting women in peril – lots of fighting schoolgirls – but the twist is the women ALWAYS get revenge – these are similar to the “women in prison” movies that were popular in the 70’s and 80’s in the US…the young women had to overcome adversity, which they did – and always with lots of kick ass action!

Here is a look at some of the most popular movies in this genre, beginning with a double bill of “High School” terror!

Terrifying Girls High School


“Terrifying Girl’s High School!” Plus! “Terrifying Girl’s High School: Lynch Law Classroom!”

Look at this double bill! Outlaw Japanese film auteur Norifumi Suzuki`s ‘Terrifying Girl`s High School’ (1971) and its sequel are classic examples of 70’s sexploitation! Check out this strange clip I found online, which begins with a Japanese lounge singer and then goes into a girl fight:

As you can tell, this is one messed up school! The students at this institution major in one thing only: survival. Bad girls must face off against one another in power plays, fend off lecherous teachers, corrupt politicians and a sadistic student body that murders when crossed – some things never change!

This is a wacky double bill to warm you up to what is a very unique genre of film…young school girls fighting for survival is a perfect example of “pinky violence!”

Girl Boss Revenge movie

These “pinky violence” films were produced by a number of studios, most notably TOEI Studios. They are full of samurai action, geysers of blood, and lots of nudity. And they all had great titles!

These are, simply put, Japan’s version of Sexploitation, and they are even more over-the-top than ours!

There are a score of websites devoted to this sub-culture of film, but I wanted to bring attention to a great collection of films in this genre available now…
