ZERO WOMAN: RED HANDCUFFS - retail edition


From our friends at NEON EAGLE VIDEO! Ships from the 2nd week of April!

When renegade cop Rie (played by top Toei starlet Miki Sugimoto) goes too far in bringing justice to untouchable bigwigs, only a dangerous mission to rescue a politician’s daughter will keep her out of jail for good. She readily takes on the task, only to find it more complicated and deadly than she suspected. After a relentless pursuit and run-ins with despicable yakuza thugs, Rei finds herself a target of a wider criminal conspiracy the outcome of which will leave almost no one alive.

Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs is a prime example of the “pinky violence” series of exploitation films that were made at Toei Studios in the early to mid-1970s. Though a short-lived genre, several true cult classics were made, of which Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs is one of the best and most influential. Based on an infamous adult manga series, this film is a delirious riot of action, sleaze, and outrageous style directed by genre master Yukio Noda (Golgo 13: Assignment Kowloon). Neon Eagle Video delivers Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs to its worldwide Blu-ray debut from a gorgeous new blood-splattered 4K restoration!
