Synopsis:
Triple bill of classic Japanese crimes by Seijun Suzuki.

Eight Hours of Terror (1957)
When all trains are cancelled due to a typhoon destroying the rail tracks, a replacement bus is laid on for passengers more eager to get to their destination, including a haughty company president and his wife, an idealistic university student, a brassy good-time girl, and a convicted murderer and the warder escorting him to prison. The bus wends its way through the night along a treacherous mountain road, but the journey is thrown into further peril when more dangerous passengers come aboard.
Tokyo Knights (1961)
When Koji is dragged back from studying in America following the death of his father, the president of a construction company, he not only has to cope with the trials of settling into his new educational environment at a Catholic Mission School, but also lend his hand to the running of the family business. Meanwhile, he notices the acting manager, Mishima, getting a little too close for comfort to his bereaved stepmother Rie, and also to the rival Tokutake enterprise who are vying for the same lucrative government bid.
The Man with a Shotgun (1961)
Nitani Hideaki plays Ryoji, the inscrutable loner who wanders into a small logging town with his shotgun and a thirst for revenge as he attempts to track down the men responsible for murdering his girlfriend. Straight away, Ryoji finds himself the subject of the unruly locals and winds up going hand-to-hand with the town tough guy Masa to establish the pecking order. When the sheriff is wounded, Ryoji steps right into his shoes, an act which sees him pitted against the hired thugs of the local lumber-mill owner Nishioka, a man with a more sinister hidden revenue stream than that provided by mere timber.
