Mask of Jigoku (地獄の仮面 Jigoku no Kamen) is a film written and directed by Akira Jotaro as the live-action movie version of the survival horror game, Jigoku no Kamen by Aozora.


In year 1006 on the anniversary of Abe no Seimei's death, a temple in an island named Torii Island had found a strange corpse by the riverside, and it was covered in blood all over its body but it had no face. A thousand years later on the same date, another body was found the same way as the first one from year 1006. Seven years later in 2013 on the 1007th anniversary of Abe no Seimei's death, a girl by the name of Kagura Hoshino finds herself waking up on the Torii Island entrance with no idea how she had gotten there. When Kagura enters through the gate, the thick fog suddenly disappears and a pathway surrounded by bamboo trees appears; when Kagura got out of the bamboo forest, she sees a festival-like village that looked like it was abandoned for years and continues to search around the island to find out the reason why she is in it, not knowing of any dangers that awaits her. Along her exploration of the island, she encounters two ghosts who wish to help her, the nameless man who died 1007 years ago and the nameless girl who died only seven years ago.
