    Caught “Onibaba” on TCM a couple of months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it’s plot twists and eerie, dream-like world set in the haunting world of the Ronin and Samurai. Checking him out on IMDb, I was surprised to see that Writer / Director Kaneto Shindô lived to be 100 (died in 2012) and has 177 Script Credits and 45 Director Credits. Moody and atmospheric, this was a pleasure to discover, especially for anyone who enjoys Asian Films. On that note, I was truly disappointed that TCM dropped their “Extreme Asian” film series a few years ago. Hope they will revive it as it unearthed several fascinating films that I was not familiar with.

    Although it’s low on their list of “The Rest,” I’d like to recommend “The Nanny” with Bette Davis (1966). Wonderfully creepy.

    • Thanks for the plug, Rick! The order is based on global Flickchart rankings, and my guess is The Nanny is low simply because not enough people have seen it to push it up. It sounds really good to me, and I hope people will watch it! It also played last month and I highlighted it as a “wild card” pick, so I wanted to make sure I highlighted some other things this month.

      That makes sense. I saw the Flickchart ranking number and knew how that worked. I was eleven when I first saw the film, and did find it scary. I saw it again a few years back and it still worked for me. Do give it a look! I did appreciate seeing the list, and liked the way it included the three sections.
