OK, brainiacs: I need help

There is a Japanese movie I saw some years ago that had a scene with a young priest (monk, acolyte?) sitting in a ritual bath singing “The Way, The Way, The Way” (“Tao! Tao! Tao! Tao! Tao! Tao!”)
I believe he was doing this to get ready to do spiritual battle? Or maybe keep demons or ghosts away?
I also remember a woman demon/ghost/something that shot her tongue out at people as an attack. It was like 20 feet of long,icky tongue. Plus, I believe either her or another demon/etc.etc. had attack hair as well. This was happening in a woods or forest.
Also, I think that this movie was set in Long Ago.

I would LOVE to have this movie for tonight. Please help me recall what it is called.

  1. That is the marvelous, wonderful and aptly named “Chinese Ghost Story.” Fun, fun stuff. And you are right, the man singing is a Daoist priest and exorcist.
