Yuuri Sunohara – Jogakusei: Harakiri AKA Zankoku-bi: Onna harakiri 02 AKA School Girl Harakiri (1990)

Quote:
A young girl in a sailor moon outfit, sits quietly in an empty room, looking at a photo album of girls (from earlier films in this series) who have commit harakiri. The viewing and thought of the suicide turns her on, much in the way that extreme desire and input draw us closer to feeling we have found something tangible. She believes she has found it, so much that she must feel closer to the experience, and the only way to do so is to commit harakiri herself. Read More »

Quote:
A voice from IMDB My continuing quest to see every film that Sweden’s stunningly beautiful Christina Lindberg ever made has brought me here to this extremely rare film… The plot: Christina, on arriving in Japan, acquaints a Japanese man at the airport who looks like a sap. He takes her to his apartment where he brutally rapes her and keeps her hostage and bound in chains. Christina’s alluring beauty eventually enchants the rapist and he is soon consulting his ‘How to Stimulate a Woman’ sex book in an effort to please her… Of course, our girl exploits this weakness and manages to escape. She then finds her way to a nightclub and to cut a long story short is ganged-banged by some odd-looking characters. Christina is not having a lot of luck is she, poor girl! Read More »
