Onna kyūketsuki( Visual )

in Japanese and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A woman named Miwako (Mihara) who's been missing for twenty years suddenly turns up alive, and looking not a day older than when she vanished. When her confused daughter Itsuko (Ikeuchi) sees a painting at an exhibition of a woman identical to her unaged mother, her cub reporter boyfriend Tamio (Wada) helps her track down the owner - an odd man named Nobutaka (Amachi). Actually a vampire named Shiro Sofue, he sees Miwako as his eternal, long lost lover. Soon after, he kidnaps and whisks her away to Shimabara in western Japan. The climax leads Itsuko, Tamio, and the cops to the vampire's mountain-entombed castle, which is quite a set to behold, complete with all mod cons (even an acid bath). The vampire's motley crew of henchmen includes a bald brute with a musket rifle, a white-haired witch, and a scurrying dwarf. Nakagawa regular Amachi is amusing as the dandyish dracula, so different from his heavily burdened character in the later Jigoku. In a funny variation on the usual problem with sunlight, this vampire can be killed off by moonlight. During the final battle, the castle caves in, in one of several references to the "Amakusa Shiro" Christian uprising cited in the original novel (the others being the Shimabara location and of course the name "Shiro").--www.midnighteye.com
