Every now and again to remind us that a certain product is coming out, companies send us some really cool stuff in the mail, but XSEED Games has taken the cake with how they sent us over our copy of Ju-On: The Grudge Haunted House Simulator.
For fans of the Ju-on franchise, or The Grudge as it is known here, the date of October 13th cannot arrive soon enough. Why's that, you ask?
The man who proved to us that no one on the planet can hold a Grudge quite like the Japanese, Takashi Shimizu, is getting geared up to bring us yet another slice of shiver fodder that is guaranteed to put a song in your heart ... and then stop it dead.
The trailer for Ju-On creator Takashi Shimizu's latest dive into the terror deep, The Shock Labyrinth in 3D, is now available. Say what you want about the guy and his films. He knows his stuff when it comes to making movies about really creepy ghosts that are pretty pissed off.
Ju-On: The Grudge for the Wii takes place in the fantastical movie universe we’ve come to love. There are no nubile young hussies who seem to beg for a beheading here. You are just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and now you and your family are cursed for it.
Takashi Shimizu knows his stuff when it comes to making movies about really creepy ghosts that are pretty pissed off. In his latest film, The Shock Labyrinth, he's taking his trademark pale spookers off of the screen and into your lap via the wonders of 3D!
In what is probably the most shocking bit of news today: Japan is actually taking a page from a recent American movie trend. They’re going 3D!
All I can say is hallelujah! After the disappointing cancellation of the fourth Fatal Frame game in the States, hopes were next to nil that we'd see the recently announced Ju-On game here. God forbid we get something other than Cooking Mama or Barbie's Horse Adventure!
Those of you excited to experience the terror that Takashi Shimizu created first-hand will be pleased to see that a trailer has surfaced for the upcoming Wii game Kyôfu Taikan: Ju-on -- roughly translated as Experience Fear: The Grudge.
Last Thursday we reported about the new Ju-on game for the Nintendo Wii and that there are two more Ju-on films coming out to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the franchise. Now just a few days later we have the teaser trailers for both films. Man, the Japanese sure do work fast.
Wow, that was quick. Apparently someone out there does read Japanese. Kevin over at Nippon Cinema contacted us in the wee hours last night (not the Wii hours … oh I slay me) with news of his post explaining the details on the teaser site juongame that we English-only types didn’t pick up on.
I'd read recently that Ju-on creator Takashi Shimizu was getting involved with game development, but the actual project wasn't clear. Now it appears to be a game set in The Grudge universe.
A good look at the Blu-ray artwork for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's The Grudge crept online today, and we have a look at it as well as a listing of the disc's special features for you. Excited yet?
