Weird Japanese films

A list of weird Japanese films, if you are looking for the more violent films, then see the torture porn list.

I span the New Japanese Gore films off into their own list, as it was a phenomena well worth a more detailed look, and see also the second half of my Asian zombie films list (and the more exploitationy end of my period films list) and there also plenty of weird giant monster and ninja films.

Comments: As I don't have a Facebook account I cannot interact with the new comments system, so have switched it off. I will start a thread on the message board and link it in here shortly.

Public domain, get from the Internet Archive - the vast majority of Japanese films were lost by the end of WWII, so it is always a treat to find the bits that managed to make it through. ” - Mighty_Emperor
