Kiwako Taichi in 'Kuroneko'
Kiwako Taichi (1943 - 1992)
Kuroneko (Yabu no naka no kuroneko; Black Cat) (1968) [Shige]: Killed (off-screen), along with Nobuko Otowa, after being raped by a group of samurai who then set fire to the house. Their bodies are shown afterwards, miraculously intact in the ashes of the house, as a cat approaches them. They appear as "cat-woman" ghosts throughout the rest of the movie; Kiwako "dies" once again when she returns to Hell after refusing to kill her husband (Kichiemon Nakamura).
