THE SNAKE GIRL AND THE SILVER-HAIRED WITCH—Widescreen Ed. (1968) Yuko Hamada, Sachiko Meguro, Yachie Matsui, Mayumi Takahashi. A girl comes home from an orphanage to live with her parents. Also living in the house are a nanny and older sister, both of whom dislike her. Soon the house is filled with supernatural terror as the jealous older sister (who can change into a snake-like creature!) stops at nothing to kill her younger sibling, all the while aided by a silver-haired hag. There are tense moments of terror in this modern-day-setting Japanese horror film. Several dream sequences are filled to the brim with eye-popping abominations. The film’s climax takes place high up on a scaffolding where the young girl hangs by a slim grip, her bloody hands being battered by her would-be killer. 35mm.
