Disc 8 has movies that are totally unknown to me. The whole feel of this CD is that of Vampire film
music with parts reminding me of the Hammer Dracula pictures.
Some additional movie info courtesy of Jolyon Yates - 09/05/2002
Track 1 - THE STROLLING HEARSE (SANPOSURU REIKYUSHA)
1964, dir Hajime Sato, Aka "THE HEARSE TAKES A RIDE / THE GLAMOROUS GHOST"
A husband kills his wife then drives her around to her lovers to blackmail them.
Track 2 - GHOST STORY OF THE HUNCHBACK (KAIDAN SEMUSHI OTOKO)
1965, dir Hajime Sato (Toei), Aka "HOUSE OF TERRORS".
Italian style gothic horror, with a love-stricken, murderous hunchback in a haunted house.
Track 3 - GHOST STORY OF THE ONE-EYED MAN (KAIDAN KATAME NO OTOKO)
1965, dir Tsuneo Kobayashi (Toei)
People who gather to share the loot from the man they murdered get a nasty surprise, one by one.
Track 4 - BLOODSUCKING SKELETON SHIP (KYUKETSU DOKUROSEN)
1968, dir Hiroshi Matsuno, Aka "LIVING SKELETON".
Pirates are lured back to the ship they slaughtered the crew of. Great use of foggy nights at sea; not as gory as
some reviews suggest.
Track 5 - GHOST MANSION OF HORROR: BLOODSUCKING DOLL (YUREI YASHIKI NO KYOFU: CHI O SU NINGYO)
Jul 4 1970, 78m, dir Michio Yamamoto (Toho)
First of Yamamoto's vampire threesome. A woman is brought back from death as a vampire. Possibly Track 6 is from this
Track 7 - CURSED HOUSE: BLOODSUCKING EYES (NOROI NO YAKATA: CHI O SU ME)
Jun 16 1971, 82m, dir Michio Yamamoto (Toho), Aka "LAKE OF DRACULA".
Some of the Dracul family have fled to Japan.
Track 8 - BLOODSUCKING ROSE (CHI O SU BARA)
Jul 20 1974, 83m, dir Michio Yamamoto (Toho), Aka "EVIL OF DRACULA".
Vampire descendants of a man who renounced God prey use their school for girls as a blood bank.
Track 9 - HOUSE (IE)
Jul 30 1977, dir Nobuhiko Obayashi
A witch's house consumes virgins. Weird imagery spoiled by bad effects, but better than Obayashi's "DRIFTING CLASSROOM"
(1981). Track 10 might be from this film.
Track 11 - INUGAMI NO TATARI.
Possibly another title of the hugely successful Kon Ichikawa film "THE INUGAMI FAMILY" (INUGAMI-KE NO ICHIZOKU, 1976),
which is one of many movies about Detective Kosuke Kindaichi. Track 12 might be from this film.
Track 13 - BLACK LIZARD (KUROTOKAGE)
1968, 93m, dir Kinji Fukasaku
Yukio Mishima's adaptation of an Edogawa Ranpo story, in which a detective falls for a criminal mastermind with a
gallery of taxidermised victims (one of whom is Mishima).
Track 14 - THE COMPLETE EDOGAWA RANPO: HORROR OF A MALFORMED MAN (EDOGAWA RANPO ZENSHU: KYOFU KIKEI NINGEN)
1969, dir Teruo Ishii (Toei)
A doctor renders those around him uglier than himself.
Track 15 - EDOGAWA RANPO'S BEAST OF LUST (EDOGAWA RANPO NO INJU)
1977, dir Tai Kato, 118m
