Jigoku (The Sinners of Hell) (REVIEW)

“Jigoku” is both an incredible and truly bizarre film. The director of the movie, Nobuo Nakagawa, made 97 films over the course of his career, which is an ungodly large number by American standards (only two other of his films are easily available in the States, i.e. "The Ghost Story of Yotsuya" and "Snake Woman’s Curse"). If you think of a current director like Quentin Tarantino maybe making one movie every four years, many Japanese directors at the time, were making four or more movies every single year.

The Living Skeleton (Kyûketsu dokuro-sen) (REVIEW)

A group of pirates hijack a boat to steal it’s cargo and in the process maliciously gun down everyone on board. Months later the ship continues to reappear off the coast and a young girl named Yoriko feels strangely drawn to this ghost ship. She makes her way on board to find out her twin sister was among those who had been murdered, and soon afterwards the gunmen begin to die one at a time.

Possession (REVIEW)

Possession movie

Possession is a hard movie to describe. So much about this movie is purposely ambiguous that I really can’t begin to recount a coherent plot. However, that is perfectly fine, because this movie is more about the experience of the character’s collective descent into complete insanity, than it is about telling a cohesive story.
