Synopsis: In the time of civil war between samurai armies, a woman and her daughter-in-law live in a small hut in a susuki swamp. They make a living out of scavenging and selling armour from dead samurai, many of whom they murder themselves. The younger woman begins a relationship with a man who lives nearby, and cannot resist sneaking out to visit him at night. Her mother-in-law tries to stop the relationship by playing on her fears of ghosts and punishment for sins of the flesh. Onibaba is notable for its setting in a sea of susuki grass, its taiko drum soundtrack, and its grisly conclusion.
