Genuinely scary fantasy set in feudal Japan, where a widowed peasant woman and her mother-in-law survive by luring soldiers away from their comrades and slaying them for their armor, until a man comes between them. Kaneto Shindô's violent and eerie film caused a sensation in its first stateside release. Nobuko Otawa, Jitsuko Yoshimura star. 103 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Japanese Dolby Digital mon o; Subtitles: English; interview; featurettes; art gallery; theatrical trailer. In Japanese with English subtitles.
