Hirokazu Kore-Eda And Shinya Tsukamoto Contribute To Anthology Project Kaidan Horror Classics

24 November 2010 9:33 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Assembled for broadcast on Japanese television by Nhk, Kaidan Horror Classics is a series of four adaptations of famous macabre short stories by high profile Japanese directors. And it's an interesting selection of talent, to say the least. Calling the shots on the series are Hula Girls director Sang-Il Lee, Infection's Masayuki Ochiai, Nobody Knows helmer Hirokazu Kore-Eda, and Tetsuo: The Iron Man's Shinya Tsukamoto.

For a full breakdown of the four films I recommend heading over to the Toronto J-Film Pow-Wow, who have posted a full review, but for a quick taste we've got the trailer below.

A few days ago, the official website for the hybrid live-action/animated film Thriller Restaurant was updated with a full trailer featuring some previously unrevealed live-action footage.

A total of 50 volumes were published from 1996-2007 and have sold over 8 million copies to date. Toei Animation recently adapted the books to an anime series which TV Asahi began airing on October 13, 2009. According to Anime News Network, the film version will be mostly live-action and CGI except for a 10-minute animated sequence in the beginning. 13-year-old Oscar Promotion member Ayano Kudo will star as a young spirit detective named Haru Amano.

The film’s director is Masayuki Ochiai, who’s previously been best known for directing horror films like “Parasite Eve” (1997), “Infection” (2004), and »

Trailer released for Hiroshi Takahashi's "Kyofu"

22 April 2010 2:26 PM, PDT | Nippon Cinema | See recent Nippon Cinema news »

The official website for Hiroshi Takahashi‘s Kyofu (terror, horror, fear, fright - take your pick) has been updated with a trailer for the film.

Takahashi was the screenwriter for Hideo Nakata‘s “Ring”, the 1998 film which launched the J-horror wave that had Japanese teenagers biting their fingernails and routinely screaming “yada yada!” for several years afterward. Most would agree that particular wave has been pretty much kaput for a good while now, but don’t tell that to producer Takashige Ichise, who keeps finding ways to get worldwide distribution for the “J-Horror Theater” series of horror films he’s been involved with from the beginning. As the trailer shows, the series includes Masayuki Ochiai’s “Infection”, Norio Tsuruta’s “Premonition”, Takashi Shimizu’s “Reincarnation”, Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s “Retribution”, and Hideo Nakata’s “Kaidan”. Kyofu is intended to be the sixth entry in the series.

Forbidden brain experiments in the trailer for Hiroshi Takahashi's Kyôfu

22 April 2010 9:19 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

From the writer of The Ring comes an experiment which gives me some serious Dreamscape vibes.

As we previous reported, Kyôfu is being promoted as the sixth and final movie in the "J-Horror Theater" (J horâ shiatâ) series - the five previous movies being Hideo Nakata's Kaidan, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Retribution

(Sakebi), Takashi Shimizu's Reincarnation (Rinne), Norio Tsuruta's

Premonition and Masayuki Ochiai's Infection (Kansen).

Kyôfu Coming to Haunt Japan in July

6 April 2010 1:43 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Is anybody really still watching J-horror anymore? I don't know about you guys, but we've pretty much had our fill of spooky little girls dressed in white with long black hair. Even our own Andrew Kasch only gets a half a chub when a new Japanese flick comes out, and that's really saying something!

For those of you following along the steps of the "J-Horror Theater" franchise, the sixth installment in the series (the other five films being Hideo Nakata's Kaidan, Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Retribution, Takashi Shimizu's Reincarnation, Norio Tsuruta's Premonition, and Masayuki Ochiai's Infection), Hiroshi Takahashi's Kyôfu, is getting set to make its debut in Japan this July. To help you gear up for this auspicious occasion, the official Kyôfu website has been launched. Right now it's only home to some teaser art, but we'll keep an eye on it in case anything interesting pops up. »
