The Embryo Hunts In Secret (胎児が密猟する時? Taiji ga Mitsuryō Suru Toki), released in July 1966, is the first film made by Japanese director Kōji Wakamatsu independently of any movie studio. It was released just months after he had left Nikkatsu and formed his own company, Wakamatsu Productions.
A man keeps his girlfriend tied up in his small apartment and tortures her. She is undressed, subjected to various types of bondage, whipped, and tortured with a razor blade. He also brushes her hair, applies make-up on her, and breaks down and cries in the fetal position. In the end the girl gets free and has her revenge.
At the time of its release Wakamatsu was quoted as saying "For me, violence, the body and sex are an integral part of life"
