She’s got a killer secret! In one of the most outrageous and taboo-smashing Shaw Brothers classics, sweet young Ainu (Lily Ho, Water Margin) is abducted and sold off to the popular Four Seasons brothel run by lusty madam (Betty Pei Ti, Clans of Intrigue), who falls for her nubile charge and entrusts her with a number of martial arts secrets like “Ghost Hands,” which allows a fighter to plunge into an opponent’s chest.

Soon murder erupts within the brothel, and a policeman must race against time to prevent a vicious revenge plot from reaching its blood-spattered conclusion. The basis for modern Hong Kong sexy-action favorites like Naked Killer, this erotic, eye-scorching cult classic remains one of the wildest martial arts films ever made!

My Thoughts

This is a Shaw Brothers film with a long title lol. It’s about a girl named  Ai Nu who is kidnapped and sold to a brothel in which they had a few guys bet on her to see who go’s first on taking her virginity. All 4 men have their way with her, not at the same time. After a few events in the film she decides she will take revenge on all those who raped her. She gets the owner who is female to fall in love with her and then gets her to teach her martial arts. Does she get the revenge she has plotted, I know but if you want to know. You just have to watch it if you want to know.

The film sports some nudity and the first I’ve seen where they test the girls at a brothel for their virginity and diseases, and that makes them work out to get in shape. The fighting scenes are OK, some points you can tell some of the actors are jumping when being thrown around.

I would say maybe a quarter of the film is action maybe a little less  but when there is action swords get to flying, blood gets to flying, and some folks die without arms. There is a good amount of blood spraying when it sprays.

The company who put out the film (Eastern Masters) over did trying to make the film look good. Colors were vibrant but the skin tone kinda seemed like it was over scrubbed giving it a blurry effect. The film gets a lot of good reviews  and i would agree with most of them. If they would have made the action a bit better and gave Ai Nu a bigger training scene ( theirs like only 1 minute of training) I would give this film a half star more

I give this film a
