Kaidan Kasane-ga-fuchi (怪談累が渕, Kaidan Kasane-ga-fuchi) (Ghost Story of Kasane Swamp), also known as The Depths, or The Ghost of Kasane, is a 1957 black-and-white/ Scope Japanese horror film directed by Nobuo Nakagawa for Shintoho Films. The screenplay was based on a story called Shinkei Kasanegafuchi by Encho Sanyutei. It was a short film, running 57 minutes.
Daiei Films remade this movie twice, once in 1960 (B&W/full screen) as Kaidan Kasane-ga-fuchi, and again in 1970 (Color/Scope) as The Masseur's Curse (both directed by Kimiyoshi Yasuda). The 1960 version was never shown in the US, nor was it dubbed in English.Tetsurō Tamba
