Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter Review


Want to see the origins of Quentin Tarantino's perverse chicks-with-guns fetish? Look no further than Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter, the third of five Japanese gangster films which came out in rapid succession between 1970 and 1971.

Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter (other installments include Wild Jumbo and Machine Animal) gives us a gaggle of teen schoolgirls who maraud the streets of the city. With no particular plot direction, they find themselves in all sorts of scrapes (Are we supposed to be rooting for them? No idea) -- from mugging rubes to a memorable molotov cocktail attack on their rivals.
