Akemi is the boss of an all woman yakuza clan. During a brawl with a rival clan, Akemi takes out an opponent's eyes. A black cat appears out of nowhere and drinks the victim's blood. This starts off a mysterious revenge curse.
A few months after the first opus of Alleycat Rock, Meiko Kaji (The Scorpion Woman, Lady Snowblood) affirms herself firmly as a star under the lens of the most aesthete of japan's perverts, raving Teruo Ishii (the Criminal Women series) who injects this work, a half fantasy, half saber movie, with a serious dose of ero-guro, his secret mix of eroticism and grotesque.
