Today, we’re sharing a handful of images from Howling Village (directed by Takashi Shimizu), slated for its US premiere as part of the Popcorn Frights Film Festival! Check them out below the trailer and synopsis!

Synopsis:
After her brother goes missing, Kanade, a young psychologist visits his last known location, an infamous haunted and cursed site known as ‘Howling Village’ to investigate his disappearance. Her investigation reveals that the village’s mysteries are connected to her family and works to uncover her family’s dark history.

Shimizu is one of the most influential directors in horror cinema. After his debut Ju-On: The Curse he has gone on to achieve international success. Subsequently, the director would go on to create a follow-up to his iconic first film before turning the concept into two highly successful American reboots of the property.
