A Halloween double feature — over at Apocalypse Now, Scout Tafoya continues our Cannes ’68 Comeback Special with a look at Kaneto Shindo’s KURONEKO, the spookiest of all entries at the Cannes That Never Was.

And at The Notebook, this fortnight’s Forgotten delves into some more very strange goings-on in the Land of the Rising Sun. You want monsters? We got monsters! (And cat ghost vampire women too!)

In the US, you can buy KURONEKO thusly:  Kuroneko (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]

In the UK, so: KURONEKO (Masters of Cinema) (BLU-RAY)
