Female assassins are so successful because they unnerve their target by breastfeeding in front of them first.

Sadly, the lady-killer in this action movie is more focused on revenge than starting a family.

While in prison for attempted murder, Sayo (Miyoko Akaza) is impregnated by a guard so she can birth revenge on the thugs who killed her husband and son.

Upon her birth, Yuki (Meiko Kaji) is handed over to Dōkai (Kō Nishimura) to be trained as an assassin.

Later, Yuki reappears with a sword sheathed in an umbrella and 4 names on a list she's looking to cross off.

A beautifully shot bloodbath, this 1973 Japanese thriller utilizes flashbacks to reveal its depressing narrative. Caked with blood, this highly influential picture not only spawned a sequel but a number of modern cinematic homages.

Moreover, it confirms that Japanese thugs do contain double the normal amount of human blood.
