Wasn’t it just two months ago that we heard “The Grudge” director Takashi Shimizu was getting ready to shoot Japan’s first 3D horror movie called “The Shock Labyrinth”? Yup, and now we have a teaser trailer for the new horror movie. Talk about efficient filmmaking! If Hollywood ever found itself doing a movie this fast, it might just implode, along with the universe.
“The Shock Labyrinth” will be based on the popular spook house attraction at the Fuji-Q High Land amusement park near Mt. Fuji (billed as “the world’s longest horror house walk-through”) and will follow a group of teenagers who take a fainting friend to an old hospital, only to discover that it’s actually one big horrific labyrinth with, one presumes, deadly traps and girls with long hair haunting the corridors.
The film is scheduled for a October 2009 release, and stars a bunch of actors you’ve never heard of, though that doesn’t mean watching them get slaughtered won’t be just as entertaining.
