Episode 23: Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo

Tonight's episode brings us to the showdown we have all been waiting for: Zatoichi vs. Yojimbo. However, like many entries in this series, things are not what they seem (the twist is that it's not a very good movie)

From IMDB: Zatoichi (ShintarĂ´ Katsu) becomes a drunken bodyguard's (ToshirĂ´ Mifune) adversary when he becomes caught up in a feud between a village boss and the man's son over stolen gold.

From IMDB: Zatoichi is tricked by a crime gang into killing a man. Realizing his mistake, he sets out to protect the dead man's sister, who is conflicted in accepting his help.

Episode 18: The Blind Menace (Ghoul Summer Special)

We are back and this episode is a real doozy. Tonight we stray away from our original path to dive into the slimiest, grossest time of the year: Ghoul Summer. We are watching 1960's The Blind Menace starring Shintaro Katsu, a film about a blind murderer and con artist that predates Zatoichi by 2 years.
