Wondering why times are missing?

Female Convict Scorpion

This mad bit of Asian exploitation (released in 1972) is based on a popular Japanese comic book and spawned a string of sequels. Meiko Kaji stars as a tough female prisoner, frequently tortured and humiliated for her cat-scratch hatred of the cruel warden. Eventually, of course, she leads an escape, which results in plenty of mutilation, bloodshed and general fury aimed at the evil male opressors. Thanks to its crazed color palette, eye-boggling camera work and tweaked-out soundtrack, this near psychedelic revenge flick becomes a long-lost work of trash cinema art. In Japanese with English subtitles. 90 minutes
