When renegade cop Rie (played by top Toei starlet Miki Sugimoto — Girl Boss: Escape from Reform School) goes too far in bringing justice to untouchable bigwigs, only a dangerous mission to rescue a politician’s daughter will keep her out of jail for good. She readily takes on the task, only to find it more complicated and deadly than she suspected. After a relentless pursuit and run-ins with despicable yakuza thugs, Rei finds herself a target of a wider criminal conspiracy the outcome of which will leave almost no one alive.
Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs is a prime example of the “pinky violence” series of exploitation films that were made at Toei Studios in the early to mid-1970s. Though a short-lived genre, several true cult classics were made, of which Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs is one of the best and most influential. Based on an infamous adult manga series, this film is a delirious riot of action, sleaze, and outrageous style directed by genre master Yukio Noda (Golgo 13: Assignment Kowloon). Neon Eagle Video delivers Zero Woman: Red Handcuffs to it’s worldwide Blu-ray debut from a gorgeous new blood-splattered 4K restoration!
