For our October Foreign Affairs screening, the Hollywood Theatre proudly presents the classic Japanese horror film, KURONEKO, on 35mm. Free for Hollywood Members!
In this poetic and atmospheric horror fable set in a village in war-torn medieval Japan, a malevolent spirit has been ripping out the throats of itinerant samurai. When a military hero is sent to dispatch the unseen force, he finds that he must struggle with his own personal demons as well.
From Kaneto Shindo, director of the terror classic ONIBABA, KURONEKO is a spectacularly eerie twilight tale with a shocking feminist angle, employing ghostly special effects and exquisite cinematography.
