Japanese AV and Gravure Idols do Horror

Halloween is horror movie time and if you’ve watched a low-budget Japanese horror/gore flick in the last few years and wanted more info on the sexy actress in the lead role, finding it shouldn’t be difficult. Chances are, a simple Google search is all it will take to see a lot more of her because most of the ladies seen in such gems were chosen from the very large talent pool of AV and gravure idols Japan has to offer. Above, we see how nicely JAV alumnae Sora Aoi, Risa Kasumi, and Mari Sakurai fill out their roles in Big Tits Zombie (in 3D!).

Below are just a select few more JAV and gravure idols who’ve landed starring roles in horror/gore movies. If you’re a fan of this genre, all of these films are highly recommended. Well ….all except for maybe one of them.

Yukie Kawamura as Monami/Vampire Girl in Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl
Eri Otoguro as Keiko/Frankenstein Girl in Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl
Even though she’s a fashion (not gravure) model, Eihi Shiina, who gave a
winning performance as Asami in Audition, deserves inclusion here.
She’s pictured above as Ruka in Tokyo Gore Police.
Minase Yashiro as Ami in Machine Girl
Aya Kiguchi as Yoshie in Robogeisha
Yumi Sugimoto as Rin in Mutant Girls Squad
Aino Kishi in Samurai Princess
Tsugumi Nagasawa (formerly known as Asami Tachibana and who’s also starred in
Tokyo Gore Police and Zombie Hunter Rika) as Aki in Grotesque. Unlike the other
more campy films mentioned here, this one is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
