Go to Hell

Jigoku (1960)
Dir - Nobou Nakagawa

What a wonderful and nighmarish film! Not an all around standard narrative but more of a fever dream look into the different areas of Buddhist hell. The last act of the film is solely in one area of hell or another and is filled with haunting imagery and surprisingly gory FX. I can't imagine what people thought of this film when it came out originally.
