A former geisha girl returns from the grave to take revenge on the servant who drove her to suicide, married her husband, and is trying to kill her son...
It starts out like an episode of the old TV series THE NAKED CITY with a deformed narrator telling us there's a million stories in a public cemetery and this in one of them. He says he used to narrate silent films (an old Korean custom?) and his tale plays like one too, laying old-time melodrama on with a trowel. There's murder, revenge, adultery, drug addiction, a girl driven to become an "entertainer", a prison break, eye-gouging, acid to the face, and a vengeful ghost whose grave splits in two so she can ascend to heaven when she's done. I don't know what was going on politically at the time but the ghost's husband was tortured by the police and sent to prison for protesting the Japanese government. It's lunatic sh!t on a low budget with lots of Mario Bava-style colored lights trying to cover a multitude of juvenile sins.
