Director Hiroshi Takahashi (“Occult Bolshevism”, “The Sylvian Experiments”) has completed production on his recent horror production “Toshimaen”. Although this marks the fifth feature length film from Takahashi, fans of Japanese cinema may be more familiar with him through his written work. This includes scripting on various films in the “Ringu” franchise as well as having his manga work adapted into a live action film (“Crows Zero”).
The film is set for release on May 10, 2019 in Japan, with a domestic release certain to follow. A trailer for the film has been made available prior to the films release and can be viewed below.
Shot on location at the famous Toshimaen Amusement Park, the aptly name “Toshimaen” film is centered around a group of friends who decide to spend a day of fun at the park and its attractions. Things go awry when one of their numbers disappears mysteriously and they believe her to have gone into the haunted house. Going in search of their wayward compatriot, the girl find more than they expected within the house of horrors. (Filmsmash)
