See Katsu at his best -- doing his worst!

Before he portrayed the legendary blind swordsman, Zatoichi, Shintaro Katsu played Suganoichi, a blind court masseur with a dark side. An outcast since birth, he learned from a young age that the only way to get ahead was to take advantage of others. Now an expert con-artist with a heart of coal, Suganoichi is on a vile quest for power, and everyone else will suffer along the way!

  • The film that inspired the Zatoichi series.
  • Starring the legendary Shintaro Katsu.
  • A must see of all fans of the Zatoichi series!
