Japanese horror film director Takashi Shimizu keeps on turning them out. He’s the director of The Grudge (Ju-On) and yes, he’s making movies in the USA too. Rabbit Horror! That’s the two words to describe this film.
“As in THE GRUDGE, director Shimizu ventures once more into the terrifying corners of the mind, creating an eerie atmosphere that is accentuated with the lensing of world-renowned cinematographer Christopher Doyle, a former collaborator of Wong Kar Wai. Like his previous horror film SHOCK LABYRINTH and his next film, the Hollywood film, 7500 (coming out this summer, starring Ryan Kwanten, Jamie Chung, and Amy Smart), Shimizu is obsessed with 3-D. And rightfully so, because he has quite a command with the medium, creating a delusional fantasy world-come-fever dream of a film that delivers frights aplenty and will appeal to 3-D aficionados.”
