    Hello all. I was reading somewhere about a series of Asian "torture" films that were released in the 60's, 70's or early 80's. I beleive there were three or four films in the series and the plots involved various torture themes from Chinese history. I could have sworn these movies were released on DVD, but now I can't find them for the life of me. All my searches keep pulling up Chinese Torture Chamber 1 and 2 and those are not the movies I am looking for.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Is that the Guinea Pig series? I don't know. Never saw it.

    But I do love A Chinese Torture Chamber Story. Granted, it's just a soft-core porn movie, but it's a lot of fun. And "Little Cabbage" is just too cute for words.

    No, it's not the Guinea Pig series, thanks though!

    I will keep looking to see if I can find it. I know it's not the Guts of Virgin series, All Night Long, or the Angel Guts movies. Hmmm...what was the name...

    Legends of the Poisonous Seductress? Female Yakuza Tale: Inquisition & Torture / Sex & Fury? The Japanese were putting out lots of stuff like that during this time.

    Might be the Harakiri series. There were made a little later in 1990 but were more "historic" by nature.

    Are you sure they were based on Chinese lore and not Tokugawa-era Japan? Because they very well could be Ishii's Joys of Torture flicks. Now while all of them aren't based in 17th century Japan, the first few such as Shogun's Joy of Torture and Inferno of Torture are, and feature all of that old-school torture stuff like kneeling on bladed wood, being tied to a water-wheel, getting stretched on the rack, being tied up and flogged, etc.
