Impecunious samurai Iemon and his conniving servant Naosuke commit multiple murders to secure the affections of two sisters, Iwa and Sode. Iemon soon tires of Iwa, and given the opportunity to marry a wealthy man's daughter, he removes the inconvenience of an existing wife by poisoning her and slashing to death the masseur he'd bribed to seduce her. The two bodies are nailed to opposite sides of a shutter and sunk in a lake. Both victims' disfigured ghosts return to haunt the two murderers, leading them to further crimes and, ultimately, retribution.

"Usually in ghost stories, even those of this very classic Japanese variety where ghosts are often portrayed as a lot more than just simple poltergeists, the horror usually starts up when those ghosts start showing up. In The Ghost of Yotsuya the real horror is the preceding hour during which we get to see two sisters torn apart from each other, the rest of their family and their lives by two complete and utter bags of bollocks who want them for themselves and murder a handful of people to do so."
