Producer/star Shintaro Katsu quickly followed up Goyokiba with a sequel that was even wilder in Goyokiba: Kamisori Hanzo Jigoku Zeme (which is known in English-speaking territories as The Razor: The Snare). Katsu toplines as Hanzo, an investigator who will use any means - violent or sexual - to get the answers he needs. This time, Hanzo's suspicion is aroused by the discovery of a dead girl who recently had an abortion. This leads to an investigation that involves an illegal abortion clinic and kinky sex-slavery ring whose participants include members of the government. As usual, Hanzo barrels his way through plenty of tricky situations that cause him to use his fighting skills and his legendary, oversized phallus. This installment of the series was directed by Yasuzo Masumura, who is best known for his famous erotic-horror film, Moju. Like its predecessor, Goyokiba: Kamisori Hanzo Jigoku Zeme was based upon the popular manga series by Kazuo Koike. Katsu would play the character of Hanzo in one more film, Goyokiba: Oni No Hanzo Yawahada Koban.
