Ghost of Oiwa


Ghost of Oiwa is a 1961 Japanese ghost story, another of many films based on the old tale. This is available online divided into sections and with English subtitles at this website. I can't find even so much as a trailer to embed here. I like Asian ghost stories, and this is a good one.

Weird Wild Realm covers a bunch of these films and calls it "one of the most vile brutish evocations of Iyemon's character."

  1. Thanks for reviewing this, but I'm not a big fan of ghost stories. I was impressed with the audience rating at Rotten Tomatoes, though.

    1. I re-checked Rotten Tomatoes, and that 100% score is gone now. Weird, but I'll correct the post now that I see it's wrong.
