Female Prisoner #701 Scorpion: Beast Stable in October

Eureka Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of Female Prisoner #701 Scorpion: Beast Stable on 8th October 2007 priced at £15.99. Meiko Kaji (femme fatale extraordinaire of the Stray Cat Rock and Lady Snowblood series) returns as Female Prisoner #701 — now escaped from the very authority that would grind her down. With one severed arm dangling from one handcuffed wrist, Kaji takes refuge in the home of a kindred soul... a latchkey slut in want of all the world’s sympathy... forced into a back-alley living for the sake of supporting her retarded brother... whose baby grows ever quick in her womb — oh, life!

No, it’s not long until old enemies rearrive, new adversaries are inaugurated... and this waking nightmare gives way to a new dawn... soiled by indiscriminate abortion!

Sounds crazy! The press release goes on to say…

This third instalment of the Female Prisoner series is perhaps also the finest, and in its concise layout it represents both a fitting conclusion to the Scorpion story as directed by Shunya Itô, and a stand-alone work requiring no familiarity with the preceding episodes. Seen either as a cinematic golf-club spelunking an orifice, or as a loving ode to human hate, one thing is certain: Female Prisoner #701 Scorpion: Beast Stable exemplifies the grind house ethos in its haunting depiction of beauty...

Presented in 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with the original Japanese audio and optional English subtitles, the sole extra is the original trailer.
