Shogun Assassin, made in 1980, is an English-dubbed reedit of the first two Lone Wolf and Cub films, Sword of vengeance and Baby cart at the River Styx.
White heaven in hell: In the final Lone Wolf and Cub film, star Tomisaburo Wakayama decided to make the sort of wild movie he'd always wanted to: one in which Lone Wolf battles zombies and Daigoro's baby cart zips improbably across an icy landscape on skis.
Baby cart in the land of demons: 5 warriors challenge Ogami to duels. Each has 1/5th of Ogami's assassin fee and 1/5 of the information he needs to complete his assassination. His mission is to kill a mad Daimyo before he destroys his clan!
Baby cart in peril: In this distinctly lowbrow entry in the Lone Wolf and Cub series, Itto Ogami is hired by the Owari clan to assassinate a tattooed woman who is killing her enemies and cutting off their topknots. Meanwhile, Daigoro is separated from his father when he follows a pair of traveling street performers outside of town.
Baby cart in Hades: Unfolding in an idyllic countryside that contrasts sharply with the violence that occurs within it, the third Lone Wolf and Cub film follows Itto Ogami and Daigoro as they continue their journey and stumble upon a crime scene involving a group of lowlife swordsmen from the watari-kashi class.
Baby cart at the River Styx: In this exploitation-cinema classic, which took the action and graphic violence of the Lone Wolf and Cub series to delirious new heights, Itto Ogami and Daigoro continue their quest for vengeance through meifumado, the spiritual way of "demons and damnation," pursued constantly by the Shadow Yagyu clan and the shogun's spies.
Sword of vengeance: He was Ogami Itto, a man who held himself to the harsh code of Bushido. Their first commission: to save the life of Daimyo and kill the traitors that plot his death. Baby Cart at the River Styx: The Yagyu clan has murdered Ogami Itto's wife, and had him stripped of his position of Official Shogunate Second. Now Ogami and his son Diagoro wander the countryside.

I enjoyed the movie. The only thing I didn't like about it is too much rape in it. Other than that it was good.
