The Sinners of Hell aka Jigoku

(Japan 1960) (Many thanks to DarkStar78)


The story tells of a young theology student who flees a hit-and-run accident, he is plagued by both his own guilt-ridden conscience and a mysterious, diabolical doppelgänger represented by Tamura, who appears to know everyone's darkest secrets.

Eventually more deaths seem to occur around him, including his own which sends him plummeting into Hell.

Hello, thank you for making this site. Your collection is beautifull. I am glad you also show films form the older times. This film is great and there many similarities between the Japanese and the Greek mentality in the matters of guilt, remourse, death and revenge. The Greeks also believe in the other world where the dead go and they pay for their debts (sins). Great movie

This is one of my favorite movies! It was so very ahead of its time - by about forty years. The visual effects and the gorgeous, unusual, and eerie cinematography are absolutely stunning. If you are a movie dork like me, you owe it to yourself to watch Jigoku, especially if you want to call yourself a J-horror fan!

This movie isn\'t about hell...watching it is hell! Who cares about these people? Japanese think too much. Hell should be gut-level. This has too much thinking, too much talking.

I admired the ambition and scope of this film, even though it could have been cut down by about 10-20 minutes. Interesting Japanese perspective on hell---I\'ve always been interesting in how other cultures look at death and life in the hereafter. Also liked the slice-of-life partying scenes at the tavern and the unusual amount of singing going on. One problem I had with the film, though----Shiro really wasn\'t guilty of anything, yet he still ended up paying for everyone\'s sins regardless---that just seemed so unfair, even in the context of the film. I also liked the fact that it didn\'t have the expected Hollywood-style happy ending--typical of Japanese

Oldschool, with some great cinematography. And I like how it builds up the characters to eventually show what they get.

I can agree the time could have been cut down, but wow. This movie didn\'t disappoint. I was skeptical about another comment calling it \"ahead of its time\" but after watching it I couldn\'t agree more.
