Creepy 1960's Japanese Horror Movie, 11 December 2007
Author: Zombie_CPA from United States

An old man dies of heartbreak when a cruel landlord is about to repossess his land. The old man haunts the landlord from the grave. Since the man died in debt, his wife and daughter are indentured servants and are forced to work in the landlord's factory.

The movie is pretty creepy and atmospheric ghost story from Japan. It does a terrific job of building the characters in the story. You feel lots of sympathy for the old man and his family. They are the victims of the landlord and his son. This is another top notch Japanese horror film. It is not very scary but very creepy. The movie gets a little under your skin by the end. It is well worth watching.
