Fortissimo enters Shimizu’s The Shock Labyrinth

26 August 2009 2:40 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

dFortissimo Films have snapped up the worldwide rights, excluding Japan, to Takashi Shimizu’s live-action 3D Horror The Shock Labyrinth. The move marks another foray by Fortissimo’s into the world of Asian horror, following its recent acquisition of Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s supernatural thriller ‘Nymph’ and Pang Ho Cheung’s upcoming Hong Kong slasher Dream Home. Its great news that it’s been picked up for distribution overseas, but we still wonder if we will ever get to experience it as the Japanese will. Theatrical 3D film distribution is still a very pricey business, so most likely we will only get to see it as a 2D release. »

'Grudge' director Shimizu in 'Shock'

25 August 2009 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Seoul -- "The Shock Labyrinth," the latest film from "The Grudge" director Takashi Shimizu, is to be a 3D live-action movie represented in international markets by Fortissimo Films.

The story takes place in a theme park near Mount Fuji and follows a group of teens dealing with the shock return of a friend they had assumed to be dead.

Produced by Japan's Asmik Ace, the film also marks Shimizu's return to genre filmmaking after a hiatus of several years.

"The production represented a great challenge in creating a brand new way of expressing fear and telling a dramatic story via the medium of 3-D film. I hope as many of you as possible will find yourselves trapped in my labyrinth and enjoy the experience," he said.

The film is in postproduction, having begun principal photography in early July.

Produced by Ogura Jimusyo's Satoru Ogura, Asmik Ace's Masayuki Tanishima and Dai Miyazaki, »

Japanese horror director Takashi Shimizu to begin work on a killer song

19 August 2009 8:34 AM, PDT | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Cool

Ju-On (The Grudge to you westerners) director Takashi Shimizu will begin work on his next project, an English-language horror thriller about a song so horrific, so depressing and macabre, that it drives whomever listens to it to suicide. Think Ringu meets Lady Gaga.

Penned by Chris Philpott (Fairytales and Pornography), the unnamed feature will be produced by Taka Ichise (Ringu) along with Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer and Brad Fischer. The idea of a killer song came directly from Shimizu and Ichise

Shimizu is currently wrapping up The Shock Labyrinth, Japan’s first live-action 3D flick. The film is based on a popular haunted house attraction at Fuji-q High Land, an amusement park near Mt. Fuji and is apparently the world’s longest horror house walk-through. A group of teenagers (it’s never 30-somethings) take a sick friend to an old hospital (it’s never new modernized hospitals) and discover »

The Grudge’s Takashi Shimizu to Direct American Horror Movie

19 August 2009 7:35 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Japanese wunderkind director Takashi Shimizu is looking to move past the borders of Japanese horror movies and American remakes of his original Japanese horror movies and finally directing an original English-language horror film for the first time. The director, who has already wrapped production on Japan’s first 3D horror movie “The Shock Labyrinth” mere months after it was announced (they work fast over there), has been attached to direct an untitled thriller about a haunted song for Phoenix Pictures. According to Variety, Phoenix Pictures has assigned writer Chris Philpott to adapt an original idea by producer Taka Ichise and Shimizu. The film, which doesn’t currently have a title, will center around a haunted song that drives its listeners to suicide. If you’re keeping track, that’s a haunted song. Asia has produced some pretty wacky haunted inanimate items in the past, from shoes to cellos to videotapes to sofas, »

Takashi Shimizu heads for horror again

19 August 2009 4:15 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Following his latest work on the upcoming fright flick The Shock Labyrinth, Takashi Shimizu (“Ju-On,” “The Grudge”) has signed up to direct another horror movie, this time for U.S. based Phoenix Pictures. Based on an idea by producer Taka Ichise and Shimizu, the as yet untitled project will follow the story about a haunted song that drives its listeners to suicide. Early thoughts story wise, is that its all sounding very much like yet another American re-hash of an Asian horror. The “hashee” being Masate Harade’s 2007 Suicide Song, but we’ll have to wait and see. »

Fuji (billed as “the world’s longest horror house walk-through”) and will follow a group of teenagers who take a fainting friend to an old hospital, only to discover that it’s actually one big horrific labyrinth with, one presumes, deadly traps and girls with long hair haunting the corridors.

Takashi Shimizu’s New Dimensions of Shock

1 July 2009 10:00 AM, PDT | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

It has been three years since Takashi Shimizu stood beside a film camera and worn his directorial hat—literally. Eschewing the black leather cap that was seemingly glued to his head throughout the production of the Japanese Ju-on and American Grudge movies that made his name, Shimizu is not only sporting new headwear for his newest feature, but is also shooting with a new, custom 3-D digital system, the first for such a production in Japan.

Journeying down to the city of Tateyama, Fango paid a visit to the set of The Shock Labyrinth 3D last week to catch up with director Shimizu’s return to feature filmmaking. Within the peeling walls of a local hospital, Shimizu and his crew are hard at work on one of the final days of shooting. Seated behind a large LCD monitor, the filmmaker reaches over to a spare set of 3-D glasses and hands them to this writer. »

First stills for Takashi Shimizu's The Shock Labyrinth

17 June 2009 11:25 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I wasn't exactly sure about this upcoming 3d flick from Takashi Shimizu backed by Asmik Ace which stars Yuya Yagira, Misako Renbutsu, Ryo Katsuji, Ai Maeda, Erina Mizuno, and Suzuki Matsuo. Why? Well it didn't sound like much original, but after seeing these technocolor stills, I'm sold. Shock Labyrinth is being shot (mostly) on location at the inspiration for the film, the worlds largest haunted house (according to Guiness) at the Fuji-q High Land amusement park near the base of Mt. Fuji,

The film follows a group of teenagers dealing with the sudden return of a friend who went missing a decade ago. When the friend falls ill, they take her to a hospital but end up trapped in a labyrinthine haunted house.
