|Ghost Cat of Ouma Crossing|
Director: Bin Kado
Stars: Takako Irie, Shintaro Katsu and Chieko Murata
Kaibyo Oumagatsuji - Visually striking and memorable, featuring a young Shintaro Katsu in pre-Zatoichi days (according to Japanese sources, it's his third film).
When a onna-kabuki actress is murdered by poison her pet cat laps its mistress's blood and becomes the demonic cat possessed of the vengeful murder victim. The story takes place in the women's kabuki (onna kabuki), banned by a decree from the Shogun in 1629, so we can assume that the time of action is the early 17th century.
