The 30th Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) will commence on
4 April 2006 and following last year's Naruse Mikio (1905-69)
Retrospective, a screening of 14 films by Nakagawa Nobuo (1905-84), the
master horror filmmaker (actually a master of genre films), will
probably be a revelation.  Born in the same year as Naruse, Inagaki
Hiroshi (1905-80) and Toyoda Shiro (1905-77) and to whom the still
active Ichikawa Kon (1915-  ) was once an assistant, Nakagawa is
well-known outside Japan mainly as the director of horror classics like
Ghost Story of Yotsuya (1949) and Hell (1960). For details, please
