"Revenge, witchcraft and forbidden love swirl together like a menacing spell in this retelling of the 18th century Japanese tale about honour." - www.urbancinefile.com.au
"Ignore the poor reviews. The story's a cracker, the action is deftly executed and it's largely, a fun ride." - www.filmink.com.au
