It's a Theme

The Halloween Film Festival continued with a Japanese movie from 1959, THE GHOST STORY OF YOTSUYA. "It's Shakespearean! It's Greek!" we said, trying to find the right word before realizing that "Japanese" was the right word, of course. But there is a little Iago-like character who runs around saying things like, "Push him into the waterfall! And if you miss, I'll stab him!" As you can see, there was a lot of white makeup with red around the eyes, a recurring theme around here lately.
