"On the outskirts of the town of Furukawa, blind masseur and master blade-slinger Zatoichi encounters one-armed Chinese martial artist Wang Kang and a young boy. Discovering that the pair are on the run from the corrupt local Samurai, murderers of the boy's parents, Zatoichi agrees to guide them to a nearby temple. Unfortunately, things are never that easy for the blind man, as he becomes entangled in in a struggle to save not only these two, but also the lives of the people they come across. When the situation worsens, Zatoichi may discover that his greatest enemy is not the men sent to kill the party, but Wang Kang and a lack of a common language between the two of them. As the crisis escalates, the two master swordsmen will find themselves alone in a confrontation where only one will walk away alive!" The 22nd movie in the series

Bigger than Godzilla! Badder than Gamera! In 1966, the Daiei Motion Picture Co. had reached its creative zenith. Riding high on the success of its Gamera franchise, the studio released a trilogy of high-quality period films (made and released in the same year) that centered around a giant stone idol that comes to life to defeat evil warlords terrorizing innocent villagers in feudal Japan. Two years later, American-International Television (AIP-TV) released two of these films, Majin, Monster of Terror (originally Daimajin) and Return of Giant Majin (originally Daimajin Ikaru), to American television, professionally dubbed into English by Titan Productions. Much like Toei's The Magic Serpent, the Majin films effectively combine traditional samurai swordplay with incredible special effects, making them a must-see for anybody interested in Japanese cinema. Just when you thought the AIP-TV versions had vanished for good, Retromedia Entertainment plucks them out of obscurity
