Plot – Spoilers:
Shogun’s Sadism is set during the Shogun Era in Japan and has two stories from the 1600s and 1800s. In the first story, Sasaki a samurai falls in love with Toyo, a woman he later discovers to be Christian. This was in a time-period when Christians were persecuted in Japan. Sasaki’s master and feudal lord is a sadist and proceeds to torment the couple brutally.
Shogun’s Sadism doesn’t let up on the torture. The movie opens with a woman being boiled in a cauldron and the torture just goes on and on. In the second story about a petty conman who falls in love with a prostitute, dark comedic elements are introduced to complement the torture and induce a few chuckles.
Shogun’s Sadism was marketed as The Joy of Torture 2 and aptly lives up to its title. Scenes include, a pilloried man’s head sawn off, a woman ripped apart by a couple of bulls, forced abortion and sexual torture involving a couple of dogs.
holy shit that lady was in there with REAL snakes
what did i just watch
i liked the main character, its sad he had to suffer and die in the end. Nice movie btw
Witch part of deepweb is here? Weird shit but atleast now I figure out why some of japanese porn movies are weird.
Why penetration scenes were censored ? This is not YouTube channel…… censorship is not accepted here. Beside that this was a real sick movie.
Mindblowing. This is the antecedent of the term “Torture Porn”. But its much deeper than that. Theres a movie with a message underneath all the depravity. Great writing, execellent actors, and funny as fuckin’ when it wants to be, this movie is a complete mindfuck. It presents you with likeable and endearing protagonist that you grow to care for and forces you to watch thier descent into hell as they are slowly tortured to death. Heavy shit! On a lighter note: This site is outstanding! Thanks for the movie and all your great work.
Absolutely amazing!!!! loved it. perfect for this site.
Awful music didn’t suit the tone of the film at all
That was a really good film, honestly though it reminded me of anime movies like ninja scroll. I enjoyed how they unraveled each story.
Wow, very interesting movie and fucked up scenes (except the one with the puppies, that was silly), the most disturbing thing for me is that I already found on the internet that most of the sick torture stuff showed on the movie was common on ancient japan.
I’m a sucker for Asian films and this is a good little 70’s Japanese film. Considering its age the effects are very well done. 3.5/5 Ox
one of the best R scene. love this site.
I am a fan of 70s gore films but tbh I never heard of this one. I doubt if it ever got a theatrical release due to its graphic nature. A bit overacted but the torture is right up there with some modern day films. Goes to show that the Japs are masters at this sort of thing. Definitely fucked up.
