[ Story ]

Japan is a land of ghost-stories, particularly in the summer when, before air-conditioning, the pleasant chills induced by such tales were most welcome to sweltering audiences. One such series of stories was called "The Hundred Monster Collection", a whole series of tales about supernatural creatures, each more frightening than the one before.
This film is about a man who wanted to tear down a shrine in order to erect a brothel. On opening day he called in the local story-teller to entertain his guests with the hundred-monster collection. But he is himself so entertained that he neglects the exorcism ceremony with which such entertainments were usually concluded.
From then on things went wrong. His fancy new brothel was haunted by the hundred spirits let loose by the story-teller. Girls and customers alike were crazed by sudden and horrid appearances. Finally, the owner mistook his right-hand man for a monster and killed him, falling upon the upturned sword to end his own miserable existence.
