"Pinky Violence" refers to a genre of Japanese action cinema which began in the late 1960's and continued through the mid 1970's. Typically featuring a young female protagonist, these films often told stories of revenge or gangland violence.
Despite the word "pinky", these films were not usually softcore (although a couple of titles toe the line). While certainly characterized by considerable nudity as a means of luring in a waning cinema audience, sex scenes were limited, typically in furtherance of the plot, and extremely mild in comparison to the "Roman Porno" line being produced at Nikkatsu. Instead, the focus is on wild, outrageous action, colorful direction and a spirit of youthful energy.
The genre primarily refers to a line of films released by Toei (one of Japan's major studios), however two series from rival series mirror the sensibilities enough that they are often included: Toho's "Rica" series, and Nikkatsu's "Stray Cat Rock" films. This list is based on the list suggested by KamuiX in his article "The World of Pinky Violence, An Intro." It is grouped by series, rather than chronology, with stand-alone films appearing at the bottom of the list.
IMDB's coverage of Japanese films is not always great. The following films should be on this list, but lack an imdb entry:
Zubekô banchô: Tôkyô nagaremono (AKA Delinquent Girl Boss 2)
Terrifying Girls' High School 4: Animal Courage
All three films in "Joshi Gakuen" series
Hell's Angels: Crimson Roar
Lifted from the Chronology of Movies section of Peter Normanton's "Mammoth Book of Slasher Movies," which would more accurately be described as an overview of gore/exploitation movies than a history of slasher movies. This replicates the order of the chronology as printed in the book, so all examples of movies being out of chronological order in the below list are mistakes made in the original publication.
From the book Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents by Stephen Thrower. (Not complete but will be whenever I stop being lazy, there's just a lot of stuff to add to ICM and...I'm lazy.)
Every film listed in the appendix of Kier-La Janisse's 2012 memoir "House of Psychotic Women." From the book:
"[…]while by no means comprehensive, this appendix is a cross-section of horror and violent exploitation films that feature disturbed or neurotic women as primary or pivotal characters […] Admittedly some films stretch genre definitions, and others fall completely outside of the centre but are nonetheless important progenitors for genre characterizations."
These are all the films covered on the fabulous website Trailers from Hell. It is not an official list, per say, nor is it a personal list, just a collection of the films that are discussed on their website, which gives great recognition to some of the best cinematic outliers.
The entire library of boutique label Mondo Macabro. Mondo Macabro is a collection of horror, exploitation, and just plain weird films curated by Pete Tombs, co-author of the book Immoral Tales: European Sex & Horror Films 1956-1984.
Movies listed in the book Svensk Sensationsfilm by Daniel Dellamorte.
Missing titles, Det Bästa Ur Kärlekens Språk, Dreams of Love, Hemmafruarnas Hemliga Sexliv, Ligga I Lund, Sommaren Med Vanja since they are not available on imdb.
All movies are exploitation movies, if you really think about it. Each one seeks to elicit interest from viewers, attempts to exploit something in them that will cause them to take time out of their busy schedules and consume whatever visual story has been conceived by the filmmakers.
However, generally when people call something an “exploitation movie”, the implication is that the producers are cynically trying to entice audiences with the promise of sex, blood, and sheer tastelessness. Such assumptions aren’t entirely groundless, and more than one movie mogul (Roger Corman, for example, who appears on the following list no fewer than three times) has made a living playing to the public’s baser instincts. But that doesn’t mean that the final product can’t be a blast to watch, or can’t be as respectable, in it’s own way, as any A-list picture.
At the very least, many exploitation films, whether objectively good or bad, provide a kind of entertainment that is direct, unvarnished, and specifically calculated to please. The list you are about to read gives a rough outline of exploitation movies that might be lesser-known in many cases, but are no less worth the investment of time it takes to watch them for people who like their fun visceral and uncompromising.

Pete Walker (born 1939 in Brighton, Sussex) is an English film director, writer and producer, specialising in horror and sexploitation films, frequently combining the two.
His films often featured sadistic authority figures, such as priests or judges, punishing anyone - usually young women - who doesn't conform to their strict personal moral codes, but he has denied there being any political subtext to his films. Because of the speed with which he had to make his films, Walker often used the same reliable actors, including Andrew Sachs and Sheila Keith, the latter playing memorable villainesses in four of Walker's pictures.
