The story a young couple caught in a web of ghostly revenge, with a black cat serving as a conduit between the worlds of the living and dead is familiar from the era's horror films, but the sumptuous production, the use of color, the Kabuki-esque theatricality, and the shadowy period atmospherics of the "ghost mansion" are something else all together.
