THE MAD FOX is a Japanese fantasy period romantic drama, from 1962, in which a court astrologer falls in love with a female fox which is capable of assuming human form.

Violence

The film is presented in a highly stylised manner and uses the conventions of ancient Japanese theatre and dance. As a consequence, scenes of violence, including beatings and the use of weapons, are distanced from reality and carry only a mild impact. There is occasional sight of blood on clothing in the aftermath of violent events.

Threat and horror

A woman is tortured in a process ion which her head is jammed in an archery bow with the string being pulled back and released repeatedly to strike the back of her neck in undetailed fashion. Another woman is trapped in a burning building, but her death is not shown.
