It is a terrific movie.

The director made a second film "Kuroneko" which is more overtly supernatural than "Onibaba." I would like to see that one some day.

 

They are both great, though I still slightly favor Onibaba. I mean just the thunderous theme song alone is a pleasure to listen to.  Kuroneko has the strongest visuals and the creepier FX work, I'll give it that.

This from the man who made "The Exorcist."

I first saw the Japanese "Onibaba" decades ago in Los Angeles; I've never forgotten it. Two women in medieval Japan kill soldiers for profit. There is a feminist theme running through it. It is savage and dark and eerie. I highly recommend.

Would love to see it on TCM.
