31 Days of Halloween - Day 3 - Movie 1

Three years after the Dragon King is robbed by pirates who murder all of the passengers and crew, the ship reappears off the coast of Japan, and one by one the pirates are visited and killed by the ghost of one of their victims, a newlywed young woman -- or are they really being stalked by the dead bride's twin sister?

The Living Skeleton (1968) is a stylish, atmospheric thriller full of fog, bats, eerie sounds, mad science and eerie visitations. The movie mixes Japanese horror elements with western style horror cinema creating something stirring and unusual in the best way imaginable.
