Demons, samurai, and pretty women
18 January 2019 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

Good and entertaining samurai and demon movie. This is more based on a supernatural concept than samurai, so this may not be the treat for people that want a samurai movie. On the other hand you are not seeing so much to the demons either.

I liked it and it is fairly good acting and an okay story. But be aware it is not a full blown samurai or demon movie.
