Summary Star of David: Hunting for Beautiful Girls is a masterpiece of twisted and unique Japanese cinema. The most infamous of Nikkatsu's classic erotic "Pink" films, It's based on a popular erotic manga by Masaaki Soto. It portrays the life story of Tatsuya, a young man of proper descent who is hiding a dark secret. Tatsuya is a little messed up. He's a bastard child conceived from the result of a vicious sex attack on his mother by a violent rapist. Growing up he has a stepfather that treats him like dirt, degrades his mother by tying her up, whipping her and having sex with other women in her presence. Tatsuya eventually gets even by killing his stepfather, inheriting a fortune as a result. But it seems that he's also inherited his biological father's penchant for mistreating women, and is soon following in daddy's footsteps, abducting, raping and killing beautiful women.
