Takashige 'Taka' Ichise-produced Next Horror (Nekusuto horā) series

Next Horror 1: Eisuke Naitō's The Crone (Kōsoku bāba)

Synopsis for The Crone:"'Jersey Girl' is a minor idol group comprised of three members, Ayane, Nanami, and Mayuko, who host a television show about the paranormal. For their next assignment, the girls visit an abandoned nursing home deep in the mountains. The premise of the show is to test the girls' courage, with the bravest girl winning. Video recorder in hand, Ayane is the first to set foot into the forsaken complex. As she enters a room and approaches a bed, she feels an unexplainable presence. Though she survives, her nightmare is just about to begin. ¶ The terror is real and though the girls think this is just another job, they are in for a reality-altering experience with no safe escape guaranteed. The girls not only struggle with the paranormal but also with each other, as animosity has grown between the 'Jersey Girl' members. The haunting repercussions of entering the abandoned building only worsen when the spirits feed off the jealousy and poison they carry in their hearts for each other. Will the girls band together and uncover the truth about the abandoned nursing home or will the ghosts they have awakened consume their souls?"

Next Horror 2: Kōji Shiraishi's Cult (Karuto)

Synopsis for Cult: "Popular idols Mari, Mayuko, and Yu investigate an exorcism for a television show. The exorcist, Unsui, possesses incredible psychic powers. His subjects are the Kaneda family, a single mother and her daughter who experience paranormal activities night after night. However, Unsui finds the demon to be very strong and requests help from another exorcist. During the struggle, Unsui is hurt and needs to be transported to the hospital. The demon terrorizing the Kaneda family pretends to be exorcised, but visits Unsui in the hospital, and kills him, despite Unsui's last efforts to fight. The paranormal terror continues and though frightened, the idols continue the investigation, as an even greater evil lurks in the shadows. Their only hope is to turn to an unconventional ghost hunter who seems reckless and dangerous himself."

Next Horror 3: Norio Tsuruta's Talk to the Dead (Tōku tu za deddo)

Synopsis for Talk to the Dead: "Having lost her beloved father at an early age, Yuri lives with her mother and younger brother. Yuri's mother meets a new man, but they are deeply in debt and forced to leave their home. Yuri is then forced to take a job as a call girl to support her brother. ¶ One day Yuri's brother becomes ill but since Yuri has to work, she unwillingly leaves him at home. When she returns, she finds him dead in the bathtub. Her heart is scarred with regret and she suffers with a pain that will never go away. After some time has passed, Mayu, a colleague of Yuri's, tells her about a mysterious mobile app that is rumored to enable its user to talk to the dead. Yet, it comes with a warning: Never reply if the dead soul says, 'I want to see you.' Because she blames herself for her brother's death and will do anything to tell him how sorry she is, Yuri downloads the app and reaches out to her dead brother. ¶ Meanwhile, the app's users begin to die."

Cult, the second movie in the Next Horror series, is scheduled to be screened at this year's Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) on April 4th. ("Next Horror", incidentally, refers in part to series executive producer Jimmy Lai's Hong Kong-incorporated Next Media Animation Limited (NMA), which is best known - via its "Taiwan Branch" - for its comically absurd animated news shorts.)

Those who are interested in the Next Horror series may also wish to watch the trailer for Kōichi Sakamoto's Travelers (Toraberāzu: jigen keisatsu).
