Strike of the Tortured Angels (aka Tortured Angels) (1982)

STRIKE OF THE TORTURED ANGELS (1982)
This is the first Asian women-in-prison flick the Gill Man has ever seen and that’s only one of two things that makes Strike of the Tortured Angels noteworthy. The other is that rare portrayal of a black woman by an a Japanese woman in brown make-up and an afro wig (!) Most of the standard WiP cliche’s are checked off though there’s a noticeable lack of violence or nudity (which are the primary reasons to seek out these movies in the first place). Though it was released in 1982 it looks like something from the late 60s. Bad dubbing with hilarious accents are a highlight. The public-domain print I masochistically soaked up was dubbed in English with GERMAN subtitles (?!). For WiP completionists only.
