pinky violence, pinku eiga, roman porno, ero-guro, women-in-prison, action, martial arts, yakuza, crime, thriller, sci-fi, and other related exploitation films that generally center around women. also including various women-led movies (often melodramas) that might not be exploitation but act as a precursor or just feel like they belong. mostly pre-2000s for now. might add some horror-ish exploitation movies, but leaving out more traditional and supernatural horror – check out my “japanese horror” list instead.
everything is in chronological order then mostly alphabetical order, so series can be followed in order of release.
always kind of a work in progress, but feel free to leave recommendations (especially if you submit any to the database!)Read less
