Shintoho Co. Ltd. (新東宝株式会社, Shintōhō kabushiki kaisha, or New Tōhō Company) was a Japanese movie studio. It was one of the big six film studios (which also included Daiei, Nikkatsu, Shochiku, Toei, and Toho) during the Golden Age of Japanese cinema. It was founded by defectors from the original Toho
Toho
company following a bitter strike in 1947.[1] To compete with the other major studios in the horror/supernatural movie field, Shintoho turned out a large group of such films suddenly in the late 1950s, including a number of period ghost movies and low-budget science fiction films[1][relevant? – discuss] (such as the "Starman" series which was designed to compete with rival then-popular characters "Planet Prince"[2] and "Gekko Kamen"[3]). Shintoho declared bankruptcy in 1961, after its last production, Jigoku.[4]
