While Hollywood is still fixated on “The Ring” — the sequel “Rings” is now shooting, and takes place thirteen years after the first movie — the franchise’s original director Hideo Nakata has moved on, continuing to build his filmography with genre fare like “Chatroom,” “Chaos,” “Kaidan,” and more. His latest is once again bringing more spooky stuff, this time to the hallowed halls of the theater.
The first teaser trailer for “Gekijourei” has arrived (according to IMDB the English title is “Stageghost“), and the story follows some actresses who find themselves the target of mysterious, unexplained accidents at a theater, that undoubtedly have some scary origins. And for those of you who are followers of Japanese girl pop group AKB48, the film’s lead actress is member Haruka Shimazaki.
“Gekijourei” opens in Japan on November 21st. Watch below. [via Film Divider]
