While Shiro is on the rope bridge, we see him at various times hanging on to the side handrails. Between shots, without him having changed position, these handrails quite noticeably change in diameter from thin cables to a much thicker cable, indicating that some shots were filmed on a real bridge, others were filmed on a studio mock-up.

So you want to turn me in for manslaughter?
We're the ones who killed him. We caused it. Let's go together. Please.
That might ease your conscience, but I'm not interested. It'd be stupid. He was drunk. He ran into the road. It was basically suicide. Besides, he was just some yakuza scum. He's not worth the best years of our lives.

The student Shirô Shimizu (Shigeru Amachi) is in love with his girlfriend Yukiko (Utako Mitsuya) and they want to get married. While returning home with his evil friend Tamura (Yôichi Numata) driving their car, they hit and run the Yakuza Kyôichi (Hiroshi Izumida). Kyôichi's mother and wife seek them out to revenge the death of Kyôichi. Meanwhile Shirô decides to turn himself in to the police and he takes a taxi with Yukiko but there is a car crash and Yukiko dies, in the beginning of the bizarre journey to hell of Shirô.
"Jigoku" is a weird and insane Japanese horror cult movie from the 60's. The story begins with a great jinx and crisis of conscience of Shirô, but out of the blue the screenplay becomes bizarre and messy. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Inferno" ("Hell")
