The Viper's Hex

World Premiere

Kiyo (Saya Minami), a lonely hostess spends her days propositioning men on the cold streets of Tokyo and being beaten by her violent pimp, Tetsuya (Yoji Yamada). One day her luck seems to change when she meets a charming foreigner named Anchin (Kenji Shimada) and a romance blossoms but soon everything falls apart when she becomes pregnant. Upon hearing the news Anchin flees Tokyo. With nowhere left to go she turns to The Viper, a scorned spirit that has been with her since birth. The Viper's Hex is a pitch-black revenge feature from the makers of Mondo Yakuza, Under A Kaleidoscope & The Perfect Nonsense.
