Gorgeous sadomasochistic pinku eiga.
2 May 2008 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Sex Hunter" is a gorgeously photographed adaptation of manga.A Ballerina diva runs a dance school from a secluded castle hideaway.One day she brings in a young lovely ballerina upstart to show her the ropes.And that is what she gets - tons of sexual abuse,bondage and rope discipline."Sex Hunter" is a marvelous piece of steamy Japanese ero guro erotica.The cinematography is stylish,the acting is remarkable and the catalogue of sexual debauchery on display includes forced lesbianism,rape and golden showers.Toshiharu Ikeda is very much a genre filmmaker–first working for Nikkatsu in the 1970's as an assistant to his mentor Konuma and then later on his own.He directed a few pinku films such as "Blue Lagoon" and then the fourth in the "Angel Guts" series before later shifting to films with more a gore and horror bent with his most famous shocker "Evil Dead Trap",which is considered one of the keystones of gory Japanese horror.
