Bizarre Japanese film full of goofy low-budget effects in which cats, pianos, and mattresses are all to be feared.

Bizarre, original and fun. Highly recommended for those with unconventional tastes.

Ignore the negative reviews, this Japanese horror movie is one of the weirdest, most visually striking movies I've ever seen and essential viewing for fans of bizarre/batcrap crazy cinema. Criterion, as always, knocks it out of the park.

Probably the cheesiest movie I've ever seen. This late '70's Japanese sort of horror movie tries very hard to be an American B movie but it just turns out to be a mess. The storytelling is of the 'put it in a blender and push high' kind, the soundtrack is acid trip wanna be and in the end, I didn't stick with it. I turned if off after about an hour or so.

Just because it's experimental does not mean it's interesting. Just because it's ridiculous does not mean it's amusing. Just because it's child-like does not mean it's primal. And just because it's absurd does not mean it's camp. The only thing at all interesting here (although typical) is the Japanese patriarchal fascination with (and fear of) female sexuality. This is certainly someone's idea of a cultural relic, but it's not a terribly interesting or relevant one. Skip it.

Really funny and weird. I still think about this movie. You won't regret watching it if you like watching unconventional films and if you have an 'alternative' sense of humor.

This movie is made in 1966, its tripy and will make you laugh and jump, a little slow but entertaining. If your a fan of Anime or experimental movies..you will love it! If you think this is a modern horror movie you'll probably hate it.
