Baian the Assassin: Vol. 2

1992 NR

It's Tokyo shock cinema at its finest in the second deadly installment of the Baian the Assassin series, based on the stories by Japanese writer Shotaro Ikenami. A professional acupuncturist by day and an active assassin by night -- or whenever else he needs to be -- Baian alternately uses his needle to heal and to kill. It all adds up to a dangerous juxtaposition for the ruthless merchant princes and corrupt samurai lords who cross his path.
