Yotsuya Kaidan (aka: Illusion of Blood) - Samurai, Iemon has been left impoverished after the loss of his master. He becomes angry upon learning that his father-in-law is planning to sell his daughters (including Iemon's wife Oiwa) into prostitution.
He kills his father-in-law and then conspires with Naosuke who has just killed another man (the fiancee of the Oiwa's sister Oume whom Naosuke desires) to make it appear that the two bodies were killed by an assailant.
Iemon then learns that if he marries Osode, the daughter of a wealthy man, he will be recommended to a new master - however he is still married to Oiwa. Osode and her father give him a medicine which makes Oiwa's face hideously ugly.
In disgust Iemon kills her and a servant and nails their bodies to either side of a door which he throws in the river and then makes it appear that they eloped together.
He marries Osode but the ghost of Oiwa returns to haunt him.
