Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Yutaka Kohira directed this sequel to his own Shin Joshu Sasori: 701-go (1976). Yoko Natsuki becomes the third actress to portray Nami, a woman whose imprisonment for crimes committed by her ex-boyfriend, a corrupt vice officer, caused her to become the vengeful Scorpion in a series of films starting with Joshu 701-go Sasori (1972). In this episode, the Scorpion takes revenge after her current lover, a reporter investigating Yakuza ties to a local hospital, is murdered to keep him quiet. Takeo Chii co-stars in this lackluster action film, which spelled the end for the character after six films.
