On ibaba

SFX - - Penny dreadful -

Kaneto Shindo, 1964

Strange, grassy, chilly pe­riod drama about mur­der and sex­ual jeal­ousy in mid 1300s feu­dal Ja­pan where a young woman and her mother- in- law hide in the long reeds and kill pass­ing sa­mu­rai un­til a hand­some lover and a cursed mask mess ev­ery­thing up. Gor­geous and haunt­ing, erotic and odd. One of Clive Barker’s faves.
