I stumbled across this site today and at first was very impresed by all the information on it but then I was shocked that there was practically nothing here about the master Nobuo Nakagawa who directed such classics as The Depths aka the Ghost of Kasane Swamp- 1957 Yotsuya Ghost Story - 1959, Sinners of Hell 1960 and many others.

Well the site is dedicated to Toho, so only covers Toho films.
The ones you mentioned were by Shintoho (the company that was formed from ex-Toho employees and broke off from the company before going bankrupt on their own). Toho did release a couple of Shintoho films, like Stray Dog that they now own, but their relationship was not very good for the very fact of how it was formed.
I know Nobuo Nakagawa did films for Toho earlier in his career, like Vampire Moth, but seemed to have a preference for working at Shintoho later in his career.
