Onibaba

Kaneto Shindo's atmospheric thriller Onibaba comes to Blu-ray for the first time as part of Eureka's Masters Of Cinema series. Set in feudal Japan, a woman and her daughter-in-law live in a hovel hidden in a field of tall reeds. They survive by murdering lost and injured samurai and selling their weapons while waiting for the woman's son to return from the army. Instead, their old neighbour Hachi shows up, having deserted his unit. When Hachi begins an affair with the daughter-in-law, the flames of jealousy take hold with deadly consequences. Brimming with menace, Onibaba is a dark, erotic spine-chiller, and is out now.
