If you ever get the chance to watch the 1964 horror film, Onibaba (鬼婆, Demon Hag and it’s free on Youtube), written and directed by Kaneto Shindo, you really should. The movie is set during the Warring States era in Japanese history. Nobuko Otowa and Jitsuko Yoshimura play two women who kill samurai and steal what little they have. It is one of the great erotic-horror classics of the 1960s.
