Very interesting film from director Takashi Miike. It's like a Samurai Western take on the whole Yojimbo/A Fistful of Dollars/Last Man Standing story with fantasy elements. It has a very Tarantino style to it (Tarantino actually plays a role), with some seriously weird story beats and shots (the opening of the film is set against what is very obviously a matte painting - the Sheriff character talks to himself in high and low-pitched voices, and also frequently chokes himself). Still, for anyone who's a fan of westerns, samurai movies, Takashi Miike or Quentin Tarantino, this film is really quite an interesting watch. I know it's not technically fantasy, but it has a lot in common with the fantasy genre - including a goddess named the Bloody Benten.
