This is a 2-disc, 2-film set from the Toho Studio of Japan. They are two slasher films from the 70's. So be prepared to put up with severed limbs, and buckets of fake blood bursting out of a cut artery. Lady Snowblood could have died many times over in her pursuit for vengeance and justice. But of course blades and guns couldn't kill her or there would have been no movie. So you can't take the plot seriously. Some camera shots are beautiful to look at. Reportedly these films inspired Tarantino to make Kill Bill. Worth a watch if you are into the samurai genre.
