''{{Onibaba}}'' (鬼婆) AKA ''Demon Hag'' is a Japanese PsychologicalHorror {{samurai}} film from 1964, written and directed by KanetoShindo. It is based on an old Buddhist Fable, but the film is notable for its uncompromising modern vision, including frank depictions of sexuality and ruthless female power, fast cuts, slow motion, unusual angles, and a frantic soundtrack mixing natural sounds and traditional drumming.
