A doctor develops a new scientific breakthrough in female psychotherapy with the discovery of the “Dream Ring,” a device that is inserted into a woman to record her thoughts and dreams. But, one dark and stormy night, the doctor and his assistant end up dead… hanging by ropes from the rafters of their lab. The lovely Reiko suffers from a condition known as “genophobia” (the fear of sexual intercourse), so she is admitted to the Tachibana Clinic for observation. Another group of doctors have the “Dream Ring” device and use it on Reiko to analyze her wildly erotic, and violent, dreams and nightmares. The clinic doctors have more sinister reasons to test this device on Reiko, however, and secretly put her under hypnosis so that the ring is activated at any time she hears the sound of a bell. Can she escape the evil doctors’ experiment and, even if she does, who is that strange person, dressed all in black, following her around?
The story of a young flirty feral woman named Kitty who is trained by a martial arts specialist to become a professional assassin. She’s subsequently recruited by the real killer, a hit woman who targets rapists at large and practices on drooling sex-mad psychos chained up in the attic. When they finally head out for the real thing, they take out victims in a display of midair somersaults, cracking whips, flying ropes, and flashing guns. This kind of foreplay attracts the lustful attentions of rival assassin Carrie Ng, a lesbian killer ready to abandon her purring sex kitten for the savage Chingmy.
This shot-on-video film opens with a close up of a man groping a woman’s dripping wet breasts, and seems to kind of come back to that same theme regularly throughout the movie. If it’s men raping dripping wet women you’re after, this one should suit you just fine, averaging about one wet rape scene every 15 minutes, with the remainder of the film made up of cops sitting around the station plotting their next move. Based on the same series of crimes that the film “The Rapist” was based on, and released the same year, 1994 was a good year for rape films.

In the invitation, the guest is requested to fulfill with the offbeat dream. In the party promoted by Mr. Warren in a warehouse, Wade gets closer to Miss Liang and two other rookies. Each one of them sees the dream coming true but sooner the quartet discovers that they are the lead attraction of the party that is promoted to torture losers in a deadly fight of classes.

In the late Tokugawa period, the Edo government is using Spies from Iga Province to cause the downfall of innocent provincial Daimyo. The Shogun needs to claim the assets of fallen clans in order to boost the failing economies of Edo. The Ninjahunters, jesting Sunlight or Tadanoshi Unui (Ryuhei Uchida) & gaunt Moonlight or Denosuke Kusaba (Mikeo Narita), are led by a brooding fellow named Jubei Muroto. These three ronin are not your normal ornery ruffians who are looking for a drink, a broad and someone to jab a sword into, but are in fact former samurai who, rather than follow their destroyed fiefs and murdered masters into death via seppuku, have dedicated their combined sword prowess to stopping the government from raping its daimyos for valuable resources. It turns out that in the Tokugawa era’s twilight years, one of the tools that the shogunate would screw their daimyos with would be the ninja-sometimes referred to as ‘shadows’. The ‘shadows’ would manipulate the daimyos by planting incriminating anti-shogunate evidence (therefore they could be taken over under the ruse of being treasonous or mutinous), by stealing valuable documents (asserting a fiefdom’s inalienable right of existence), or by the assassination of key political figures and lords. In a sense, the Shadow Hunters act as a kind of firefighter to the Tokugawa shogunate’s ninja bad guys; moving from land to land, offering their swords and ridding Japan of the accursed ‘shadows’ that destroyed their own clans.
Carol Jeffries (known as ‘Jeff’) is a naive American woman staying in the Phillipines. She is given ten years in prison after being set up by her drug-dealer boyfriend, Rudy. She endures the harsh conditions, sadistic head matron and attempts on her life, then convinces her cell-mates to try to escape with her through the jungle, in spite of the knowledge that ruthless trackers will be sent out after them.
The three Shadow Hunters return for another round of Ninja killing. As the film opens, the three Hunters are apart but each is attacked by a “Kunoichi”, a beautiful, deadly female Ninja. After each has dispatched with the Kunoichi, they reunite for another job thwarting shadows at the behest of a clan. Though its use has been outlawed, a mountain clan has a prized cannon that was used in the civil war. Recently, they have melted it down to make a new and more deadly weapon, even though doing so is in direct defiance of the current Shogun’s orders. The Shadow Hunters must retrieve the new cannon from the summit of the mountain and return it to the village before the Shogun’s inspectors arrive. Unbeknownst to the trio, Domoto Makaku, leader of the Shogun’s shadows, is personally coming to make sure that their mission fails. It will take more than brute strength and swords to get the cannon down the mountain and the Hunters pull out all the stops to complete the mission they’ve been assigned.
