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!
