DAIEI

[ Story ]

In the eighteenth century the governor of lzu is out fishing with his daughter (Akane Kawasaki) when there is a sudden storm out of which materializes the monster Daimon.
This creature once ruled over ancient Babylon and has now awakened from its sleep of four thousand years and come to Japan. A blood-sucking monster, it drains the governor and then takes over his body.
Though the man was formerly kind and gentle, he now becomes violent and merciless, and his daughter does not know what to make of him. Only one of the local water-spirits, being part monster himself, sees through Daimon in his new disguise and realizes what has happened.
The spirit asks the help of his many ghostly friends and they rise to defeat the new monster. But they are powerless, until one of the late governor's loyal retainers (Yoshihiko Aoyama) realizes that Daimon may be killed by a direct shot through the eye. This he accomplishes, but the monster, though wounded, lives on.
The ghosts and spirits gather for a last desperate battle. They come from all corners of the islands and eventually conquer the dreaded monster. Only then does peace once more prevail.
