Third Episode in the One Hundred Monsters trilogy

original Japanese title TOKAIDO OBAKE DOCHU [Journey Wioth Monsters on Tokaido Road]
also known as YOKAI MONSTERS: ALONG WITH GHOSTS and ONE HUNDRED GHOSTS III

director: Kimiyoshi Yasuda
starring: Kojiro Hongo Masami Kojomon Pepe Hozumi Kitayo Ima Yosuke Shimada

This is the third installment of the YOKAI MONSTERS trilogy, preceded by ONE HUNDRED MONSTERS and THE GREAT MONSTER WAR. A little girl travels notorious Tokaido Road (known as "Monster Alley" to the locals) when she goes off to find her long-lost father. Most all the adults try to rob her or hurt her in some way [with the lone exception of the Kojiro character who eventually befriends her]. She also teams up with an orphan boy for the latter part of her journey. Together, aided by a bunch of monsters, they defeat all the bad guys.

Director Yasuda was Daiei Studios' top director (responsible for MAJIN MONSTER OF TERROR, DECAPITATION ISLAND, ZATOICHI MEETS THE ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN, etc) plus he had also helmed the first entry in this series. He became forever linked to the Zatoichi television series, directing and producing most of the episodes before his death at age 72 in 1983. His assistant [and special effects] director for this movie was Yoshiyuki Kuroda, the filmmaker who made the previous MONSTER WAR entry plus the finale of the BABY CART series WHITE HEAVEN IN HELL.
