    Heck, I like Zero Woman because it's delightfully cheesy! I'd add the Tomie franchise to the list, that's even cheesier!

    Female Prisoner #701 is definitely a good one. The utterly bizarre "Branded to Kill" is another one that I like a lot. It's even developed something of a cult following in the U.S. over the last few years.

    That's the one. Suzuki made a sequel in the last few years called "Pistol Opera." It isn't as zany as "Branded to Kill" - it tries too hard to be deliberately artsy - but it's worth watching.

    I'm not sure if it's considered a B-movie, but I definitely found Versus enjoyable.
