Shogun Assassin

Directed by Kenji Misumi

In this bastard offspring of the first two episodes of the popular Japanese Babycart series of films, a masterless samurai wanders feudal Japan with his baby son, cutting a bloody swath through all who stand in the way of his ruthless quest for vengeance. Legendary excess reigns supreme in this blur of lightning swords – a balletic bloodbath of jaw-dropping proportions. A hit in the Staes but banned in the UK for many years, this is the ultimate Japanese cult samurai movie. Catch it on the big screen.
