This is a true homage to the classic Horror flicks of yesteryear
4 May 2018 | by shagee7977See all my reviews

I was approached By the Producers of Gehenna: Where Death Lives to look at a screener and review. I was amazed at the level of this movie took me. Doug Jones (Amphibian Man) From the Academy Award winner The Shape Of water plays a pivotal role. This is the feature directorial debut of celebrated effects master Hiroshi Katagiri (Jurassic Park III, Pacific Rim), who also provides the film's impressive effects and wrote it. Gehenna co-stars genre icon Lance Henriksen ( Aliens), Eva Swan , Simon Phillips, Patrick Naomi Gorman , Sean Sprawling , and Justin Gordon . Lance Henriksen is a real estate developer looking for a new breathtaking tucked away area in Japan for his newest resort.He sends his people to check out the area.There met by the properties representatives and are giving the grand tour. It is the ultimate paradise and just what they are looking for.Until they find a tucked away old WWII bunker. They enter and there lives are changed forever. An evil spirit possesses the bunker and keeps them from escaping and finding there way out. They are shown there most feared past secrets and met with consequences that leave to the ultimate sacrifices....There lives. I am so blown away by the attention to detail of story, FX and sets. Hiroshi Katagiri blew me away with his freshman attempt at directing a feature. Well in all due respect he has mastered all the skills of making a top notch Horror movies. It is original and looks 10X the budget. It rivals all the sappy sugar coated color by number horror flicks out there now. I hope this gets a wide release and is watched. There are thrills and jolts in this claustrophobic Horror flick that has not been achieved in awhile. Nowadays all horror movie are going for the teen audience and are not horror. This while not overly gory, but has it's moments this movie tells a story and has strong characters and convincing actors playing there parts well.. I am so excited to see whats next from Hiroshi Katagiri and want to thank the producers for having faith and making this movie. I highly recommend it and really hope it catches the attention of the core audience it is going for. It is a popcorn munching movie. Feel free to share post and tell your friends! Many thanks to Executive Producer Kee Saik Meng.
