Jigoku is a 1960 Japanese horror film centered around a man tormented by a guilty conscience. The film was written and directed by Nobuo Nakagawa, a prolific Japanese filmmaker famous for his work with folk-tale art. Jigoku is based on a ancient Japanese myth which depicts hell on earth. When a straight-laced graduate student who studies theology accidentally hits someone on the road, his instinct tells him to flee the scene. Little does he know that his actions, or, rather his inactions, will haunt him for the rest of his life. He becomes extremely downtrodden by guilt and a looming sense that he is responsible for the death of a lover. Things become increasingly confusing when he meets his doppelganger who threatens to divulge dark, incriminating secrets concerning his past. As a result, Nobuo Nakagawa embodies hell on earth as it was imagined by ancient Japan. A harrowing tale of a man so consumed by his thoughts, he goes crazy. Two thumbs up!moreless
