Curses never die, but people do.
In the Edo era of Japan, when cultural arts flourished and the samurai code of "bushido" emerged, humanity's fear of the supernatural was very real! Desiring to wed Lady Oiwa, an ambitious and calculating ronin named Iemon murders her father, who had opposed the marriage due to Iemon's treacherous past.
As a masterless samurai, Iemon soon grows weary and resentful of his ailing wife Oiwa and their impoverished stature; however, when he is presented with an offer to marry a wealthy neighbor's beautiful granddaughter, Oiwa is duped into drinking a poison that horribly cripples her. The revelation of Iemon's betrayal as well as the painful disfigurement causes Oiwa to kill herself, setting into motion a nightmarish curse carried out by a terrifying, vengeful spirit seeking retribution!
