Switchblade Pictures Licenses Sultry Assassin – The Aphrodisiac Kill

HOUSTON, March 2nd,  2012Switchblade Pictures has announced the latest addition to the company's expanding line of live action features: SULTRY ASSASSIN – THE APHRODISIAC KILL.  Based on the sizzling line of “eroninja” novels by Junichi Yagami, APHRODISIAC  KILL is the first film in a new series from writer/director Kenichi Fujiwara (Zombie Hunter Rika, Zero-Man R and Grafreeter Toki.)  Produced by the Take Shobo Company and Shintoho Pictures Co., Ltd, the erotic action thriller stars Akiho Yoshizawa (Maidroid 1 & 2, Invader 33D) as the titular female ninja Rin, while exploitation stalwart Kesuke (Cruel Restaurant,) former U.S. adult film star Asami and new ero-horror star Rin Kawai round out the cast.
When drugs, graft and the illegal sex trade, come together, the outcome can be deadly; especially in ancient Edo, where the law is dictated by he who wields the strongest sword. That's why Yasaburo, a mere commoner, spends all his spare time practicing and refining his prowess with a blade.  But when Yasaburo comes to the aid of a woman he believes to be a prostitute, he soon learns that there are more kinds of weapon than he'd ever imagined… for the woman is actually Rin, a female ninja enforcer assigned to pose as a prostitute in order to investigate shipments of an illegal aphrodisiac, and the deadliest weapon in ancient Japan isn't made of steel or wood, but rather of human flesh in the form of a deadly Kunoichi assassin.   Get ready for the wildest eroninja film ever as three of Japan's hottest female stars bring Junichi Yagami's epic erotic novels of sex and steel to life in SULTRY ASSASSIN - THE APHRODISAIC KILL!
SULTRY ASSASSIN - THE APHRODISAIC KILL will be available on subtitled DVD later this year.  Contains Violence, Nudity & Adult Situations.
