Join us for the gory alternative to Cat Video Fest – Killer Kitties – Back-to-back ferocious feline films on Saturday, August 5th in the MUBI Microcinema.

From Teruo Ishii, BLIND WOMAN’S CURSE is a thrilling yakuza film featuring eye-popping visuals, sensational fight sequences and the iconic Meiko Kaji (LADY SNOWBLOOD) in her first major role. Akemi (Kaji) is a tattooed leader of the Tachibana Yakuza clan. In a duel with a rival gang, Akemi slashes the eyes of an opponent and a black cat appears, to lap the blood from the gushing wound. The cat, along with the eye-victim, pursue Akemi’s gang in revenge, leaving a trail of dead yakuza girls. A bizarre blend of the female yakuza film and traditional Japanese ghost story with a strong dash of grotesque erotica, BLIND WOMAN’S CURSE is a delirious mash-up of classic genre tropes — of which Ishii was no stranger, having directed everything from Super Giant films to biker movies.
