"22.10 DVD Tyylikästä ja tunnelmallista Jaappanin kauhua. Visuaalisuus on taas varsin komeaa ja laavakuvaa osataan käyttää, mutta mitäpä uutta siinä nyt olisi, kun ottaa vuosikymmenen huomioon. Pidin enemmän kuin Kuronekosta."

" ็Horny widow and her daughter-in-law ! I've never seen any movie that woman eager for sex so much that make her look ridiculous, pathetic,evil but still funny. The film is totally dark and satire. "

"Onibaba on hieno kuvaus eräästä ajasta ja onnistuu tuonaikaisen maailman julmuuden kuvaamisessa, sen seksuaalisten tabujen ja eritoten kulttuuriin kuin kulttuuriin kuuluvan yksityishenkilön tarkoitusperien uskonnon varjolla ajamisen esittämisessä erinomaisesti. Visuaalisesti Onibaba on huippuluokkaa (mm. eräässä kohtauksessa mökin edessä möllöttänyt valtava kuu jäi allekirjoittaneen mieleen paremmin kuin mainiosti) ja painostava musiikkikin on huippuluokkaa. Pelottavaksi itse en l"

" First Viewing Rented Library DVD While a great film in terms of scope, I couldn't help but feel it ran a bit too long. I was entertained by the last 20 minutes or so but felt that the middle section did nothing but drag it's feet through the grass."
