Female Prisoner Scorpion: Beast Stable
Directed by Shun'ya Itô
The 3rd Female Prisoner film, the Gothic horror-inspired BEAST STABLE finds Nami branded public enemy #1. She soon finds refuge with a sympathetic prostitute, but is on the run from a local gang, her ex-prison mate and a cop whose arm she hacked off (hell yeah). Contains strong language, violence and gore.
In the Gothic BEAST STABLE, Scorpion hides out but runs afoul of a local gang.
Cast: Meiko Kaji, Rie Yokoyama, Yayoi Watanabe
Not quite as operatic or lush as the previous two. Definitely goes to more grounded, almost calm tones with quick shots of nastiness. Enjoyed it nonetheless and was interesting to see them give Matsu more of a character finally instead of just being this wraith swooping from scene to scene.
Gone is the stylish look and feel of the previous two as this third chapter continues the story of Matsu and others while bringing some very perverted moments onscreen.
A bit of gothic horror with this good followup to the series. Some scenes were tough to handle but then we get the playoff when The Scorpion strikes back. A bit more atmospheric than the previous sequel though just as visceral such as the subway scene. A recommended watch.
A more than decent sequel to the first film. It definitely had gothic horror themes and visuals blended with the lone vengeful narrative. Some parts in the movie were downright tough to watch but makes viewers
This series is awesome!
