PINKU VIOLENCE

Pinku Violence (aka Pinky or Pink Violence) is a sub-gengre of Japanese film known as 'Pinku Eiga', which is a wide ranging term that encompasses everything from dramas to action thrillers and exploitation films, and softcore pornographic (aka romance pornography or roman poruno) features.

Pinku violence is a peculiarly Japanese form of so-called 'Exploitation Film', which is an informal label often applied to any film which is generally considered to be low budget, and therefore apparently attempting to gain financial success by "exploiting" a current trend, niche genre or base desire for lurid subject matter.

The term "exploitation" is common in film marketing for promotion or advertising in ANY type of film.

A true "exploitation film", however, due to its low budget, relies more heavily than usual on "exploitation" of sex, violence, or romance... and, more often than not, a combination of all three.

Pinku Violence differs from this usual Hollywood formula though, as they sometimes contain little or no softcore sex scenes and focus more on violence and revenge and feature strong female lead characters.

Other popular themes are rival girl gangs (whether street gangs, motorcycle gangs or yakuza) clashing and prison settings.

Toei, a major Japanese film studio, led the charge in developing Pinku Violence films and produced the vast majority of them, though Toho and Nikkatsu each produced about a dozen or so such films during the height of the Pinku Violence era from 1969 to 1980.

Though Pinku Violence films are widely considered to be generally "B movies", they sometimes attract critical attention and cult followings.

Some films which might readily be labeled as Pinku Violence have become trend setters and of historical importance in their own right, such as the Stray Cat Rock series of films (1970-71).

Some modern films, particularly V-Cinema releases, such as 'Bloodbath at Pinky High', also might be advertised by the producers themselves as Pinku Violence in order to pique the interest of those who seek out films of this type.

A great many Pinku Violence films revolve around Sukeban, Yankī and Bōsōzoku gangs, and many of them are listed (and where possible download links are given) in the TV and MOVIES pages on this site....
