Legend of [the] Eight Samurai (Satomi Hakkenden) is a 1983 Japanese fantasy blockbuster from Kinji Fukasaku, the director of Battle Royale, set in the Edo period. It's based on the 1982 novel Shin Satomi Hakkenden, a loose retelling of the 19th century Japanese epic Nansou Satomi Hakkenden. It would in turn inspire a 1989 Famicom JRPG titled Shin Satomi Hakkenden: Hikari to Yami no Tatakai ("Shin Satomi Hakkenden: Battle of Light and Darkness").
