4 out of 5. ONIBABA by Kaneto Shindô was one of the first Japanese films I ever saw. I remember the photography and use of cutaways of the tall grass, luring you into a seduction of safety. It twists and turns and gets really creepy as samurai bodies pile up under the terrible hands of mother and daughter. This is the kind Japanese horror film that I like. Great execution!
