Asian horror is alive and kicking, and if you need proof, you won’t have to wait very long as Synapse Films is getting set to expand its Asian Cult Cinema Collection line with the release of Gurozuka!
Synapse Films presents Yôichi Nishiyama’s GUROZUKA, a stylized horror film in the J-Horror tradition of the genre-bending Japanese classic THE RING and the frightful fervor of SCREAM.
Look for the flick to hit DVD on January 10th, 2012! Special features will include The Making-of GUROZUKA featurette and the original trailer.
A fun getaway turns into a journey to Hell for some unlucky teenage girls visiting an isolated house to rehearse and perform a play for their private movie club. Taking the trip with an adult chaperone, the girls learn that a previous club member supposedly went missing in the house, and another went insane! Shortly after they arrive, a mysterious videotape is found with footage of a violent killer wearing a Japanese ‘deigan’ mask. Is this footage faked—-or real? Soon the girls’ food and equipment disappear, and one of the girls is haunted by ghostly visions of the masked demon. Someone–-or something–-is in the house, and gruesome death awaits those who cannot escape!
