Sex Hunter is Cumming

 Coming soon from Synapse/Impulse is Yukihiro Sawada's SEX HUNTER: WET TARGET, a film well worth owning that I've seen (only) on non-subtitled VHS. Falling into the harsher end of Nikkatsu's Roman Porno line (thank God!), it's from a director who has made some excellent crime/sex flicks, the best being RETREAT THROUGH THE WET WASTELAND. 
 He also made the relentlessly grim FLESH TARGET: RAPE.
SEX HUNTER, not to be confused with Toshiharu Ikeda's film of the same name (but without the 'Wet Target' addition), focuses on a man's efforts to catch and kill his sister's rapists/killers. The film does bear some similarities to the Swedish THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE.
