Hellish Love - Chusei Sone (1972)
Pink film pioneer Chusei Sone brings us something a little different with his 1972 film "Hellish Love". Based on a traditional Japanese ghost story the film follows a young man during the Edo Period who falls in love with a woman, never knowing that she is in fact a spirit from beyond the grave.
