The Devil's Temple

鬼の棲む館 (Oni no Sumu Yakata)
Friday, May 14, 2010

© Kadokawa Pictures, Inc.



1969, 76 min., 35 mm, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kenji Misumi. With Shintaro Katsu.  Print courtesy of Kadokawa Pictures.

In this little known Misumi masterpiece, an abandoned temple nestled in the mountains is the scene of a fateful encounter between a Buddhist monk, two women in love with the same man, and a fallen samurai (Katsu, at his most ferocious). As destinies collide: it appears that not just the lives of the quartet are at stake, but their very souls. Hell awaits!

Part of the Monthly Classic Series:
The Double Edged Sword:
The Chambara Films of Shintaro Katsu & Raizo Ichikawa
