Three years before her starring turn as ice-cold assassin Lady Snowblood, Japanese action heroine Meiko Kaji and her all-girl gang of juvenile delinquents terrorized the streets of Tokyo in Nikkatsu's Stray Cat Rock movies. The third film in the series, Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter, sees Meiko and the girls coming to the defense of a handsome mixed-race wanderer who falls victim to a xenophobic beating at the hands of their male counterparts. Set against the psychedelic backdrop of Japan's answer to the swinging London of the 1960s, Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter features a feisty gang of teenage girls who take no shit, including one cathartic scene where they light up a party full of would-be rapists with Molotov cocktails.
