2012/13 Season


Japan 1964 (15)
103 minutes

Directed by Kaneto Shindō

Ipswich Film Theatre - 25 March 2013 - 7.30pm

The wife and mother of an enlisted soldier in fourteenth century Japan eke out a living in a reed marsh, plundering the corpses of stray soldiers they have trapped in a pit. A spine-tingling horror film that demands to be seen, and heard.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Left me speechless! So atmospheric and terrifying. Black and white horror – what a joy; Brilliant black and white photography. I shall never view grass the same way again; Thought it would never end; Rather nasty! Still, it keeps the percussion section in work; A morbid, depressing film.
