The Great Yōkai War), also known as Ghosts on Parade, is a 1968 Japanese fantasy horror film directed by Kuroda Yoshiyuki. It is the second in a trilogy of films produced in the late 1960s, all of which focus around traditional Japanese monsters known as yōkai.

The film was made in Fujicolor and Daieiscope. (Source Wikipedia)
