    Out of the freaking* blue TLA Video has released new information on these upcoming releases:

    Assault! Jack the Ripper
    1976, 72 min
    A.K.A.: Bôkô Kirisaki Jakku
    Country: Japan
    Director: Yasuharu Hasebe

    Easily one of the most violent Pink films ever made, Assault! Jack the Ripper follows the budding romance of an angry waitress and a timid pastry chef who discover (after a deranged encounter with an insane hitch-hiker) that raping and murdering women is the only way they can get turned on. Lots of topless Japanese hotties and many, many scenes of vaginal stabbing follow. Director Yasuharu Hasebe's other films include Rape!, Rape! 13th Hour and Raping!... boy he sure likes exclamation points... and rape.

    The film is set in 1923 in a cheap Tokyo boarding house. The landlord, Goda, roams through the attic, observing the weird lives of his tenants through holes in the ceiling. One day he sees a prostitute murder one of her clients and decides that at last he has found his soul mate.... Based on stories by the Japanese master of horror, Edogawa Rampo, the film features some of the most bizarre sex scenes ever, including the story of a man who hides inside a special chair, so that a naked woman can sit on him.

    You beat me to this, I was just about to post it. Awesome seeing MM getting into the Japanese exploitation scene, I never really thought they would, but it definitely fits their style. Watcher in the Attic is delightfully perverse, and Assault! Jack the Ripper is pretty extreme, and a film I NEVER thought I'd see released over here. A very cool announcement all around, and I'll be buying these without a doubt, hopefully to prompt future releases in the genre.

    Intriguing. I'll most likely pick up both of these.
