Description by OLDIES.com:

Between 1970 and 1974, numerous Japanese film companies - in particular Nikkatsu and Toei - produced dozens of films in a new sub-genre which combined action, sex, violence and crime, and was dominated by ruthless and deadly delinquent females. This sub-genre, which Toei would eventually dominate and define, is now known as pinky violence. With such series as Girl Boss, Girls' High School Terror, and Female Prisoner: Scorpion, as well as individual films like Ranking Boss Rock and Criminal Women: Killing Melody, Toei created a cinematic world filled with nudity, sex, cat-fights, torture, rape and revenge, and peopled by very, very bad girls - renegade cops, girl gang leaders, rebel highschool girls, female convicts - who stripped off their clothes as readily as they pulled out a gun or a knife. TOKYO GRINDHOUSE Volume One is the first English-language book publication devoted to this brief but highly influential 70s movie craze for sexy bad girl action, whose themes have more recently been echoed and revived in films such as Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill and Death Proof. The book contains an extensive introductory history by Jack Hunter, as well as illustrated sections on all the main pinky violence series and one-offs. It is printed in full-colour throughout, with over 140 rare images of film posters and publicity shots, plus nude glamour galleries of leading pinky violence stars Reiko Ike and Miki Sugimoto.
