Toei Studios female "demon" fighter starring Junko Miyazono. Director Nobuo Nakagawa is the established master of the classic Japanese horror film and the director of films like JIGOKU (1960), YOTSUYA GHOST STORY OF THE TOKAIDO ROAD (1959), SNAKE WOMAN'S CURSE (1968), and two films in the LEGENDS OF THE POISONOUS SEDUCTRESS series, QUICK-DRAW OKATSU (1969) and OKATSU THE FUGITIVE (1969). In the final episode of the LEGENDS OF THE POISONOUS SEDUCTRESS series, Junko Miyazono appears one final time as beautiful swordswoman Okatsu the Avenger, but this time seeking Judayu, a corrupt merchant responsible for the death of her parents. Betrayed by her fiancé, Okatsu finds herself aided in her quest by a handsome stranger (yakuza film star Tatsuo Umemiya) who happens to be as handy with a sword as she is!


What is the reason for his kindness, and will Okatsu be able to prevail against Judayu, now a powerful businessman with scores of allies in high places? Whatever the end may be, the restless spirits of her murdered parents drive OKATSU THE FUGITIVE along her crimson-colored road of vengeance. Master filmmaker Nobuo Nakagawa (Jigoku, Snake Woman s Curse) brings audiences the stunning end of the trilogy that inspired countless imitators among Toei s Pinky Violence films of the 1970s.
