Also are there other films you think achieved this artistic balancing act between horror and beauty. I know Darrio Argenta did so in a different way or style if you like. Susperia is almost pushing this concept to the edge of the envelope. Any thought?
---I'm more familiar with Japanese samurai films--chambara, an onomatopoeia for the sound of swishing swords.
Horror specific try 'Onebaba' and 'Kwaidan'.
'Seppaku' AKA 'Harakiri' while not horror is afine blend of beauty and violence.
Try the Lone wolf and Cub series.

A propery trained samurai should be able to write poetry.
Its the sword and chysanthemum thing.
Zatoichi, the blind swordsman, movies are entertaining.
Shintaro Katsu, Zatoichi, also produced the first three Lone Wolf and Cub movies.
Tomisaburo Wakayama, the star of them is Shintaro Katsu's brother.
