  • Onibaba, or Demon Crone, was a dangeours creature of the Shadowlands, some sort of highly evolved Bog Hag. Kuni scholars theorized bog hags were searching for the perfect skin that could become fully theirs. Once they were “completed” by such a skin they would gain additional powers. They lived in the mountains and forests of the Empire.
  • "People are both the devil and god--and are truly mysterious" -Writer/Director Kaneto Shindo Onibaba (鬼婆) AKA Demon Hag is a Japanese Psychological Horror Samurai film from 1964, written and directed by Kaneto Shindo. It is based on an old Buddhist Fable, but the film is notable for its uncompromising modern vision, including frank depictions of sexuality and ruthless female power, fast cuts, slow motion, unusual angles, and a frantic soundtrack mixing natural sounds and traditional drumming.
  • Onibaba is a Category II Kaiju present in the Pacific Rim franchise. Bearing a striking resemblance to a crustacean and a Japanese temple, Onibaba appears somewhat smaller than the rest of the Kaiju in height, but larger in terms of width. During the battle, Onibaba is able to inflict damage to Coyote Tango's head. Tamsin Sevier blacks out from a seizure, forcing Stacker Pentecost to undertake the dangerous task of piloting the Jaeger alone. He succeeds in doing so and kills Onibaba, saving Mori.

abstract
  • Onibaba (鬼婆 Onibaba) is a 1964 Japanese film written and directed by Kaneto Shindō.
  • Onibaba is a Category II Kaiju present in the Pacific Rim franchise. Bearing a striking resemblance to a crustacean and a Japanese temple, Onibaba appears somewhat smaller than the rest of the Kaiju in height, but larger in terms of width. Onibaba's attack on the Japanese capital city of Tokyo was dubbed the "Onibaba Incident". The beast lays waste to the city, killing millions of people. In the midst of destroying the city, it notices a terrified little girl wandering the streets crying for her parents: Mako Mori. The Kaiju relentlessly chases and corners her, but is interrupted by the arrival of Coyote Tango. Piloted by Stacker Pentecost and Tamsin Sevier, the Jaeger is deployed to the city to aid the military in luring Onibaba into a more isolated area in order to prevent further casualties. During the battle, Onibaba is able to inflict damage to Coyote Tango's head. Tamsin Sevier blacks out from a seizure, forcing Stacker Pentecost to undertake the dangerous task of piloting the Jaeger alone. He succeeds in doing so and kills Onibaba, saving Mori.

  • "People are both the devil and god--and are truly mysterious" -Writer/Director Kaneto Shindo Onibaba (鬼婆) AKA Demon Hag is a Japanese Psychological Horror Samurai film from 1964, written and directed by Kaneto Shindo. It is based on an old Buddhist Fable, but the film is notable for its uncompromising modern vision, including frank depictions of sexuality and ruthless female power, fast cuts, slow motion, unusual angles, and a frantic soundtrack mixing natural sounds and traditional drumming. It was filmed in a field of high susuki grass, meaning that neither the characters or the camera were able to see more than a few feet, which helped to create a claustrophobic, entrapping effect. The action takes place during one of the many bloody wars of Japan's feudal period, but centers around a small group of poor fishing villagers who must eke out an existence on the outskirts of the brutal war, highlighting the social conflict between the ruling samurai and the poor farmers on whom they built their empires. The iconic mask inspired the design of the demon in The Exorcist. Also, the film is named after creatures in Japanese folklore, which you can find here.
