New J-Horror Trailer: Hideo Nakata's Newest The Incite Mill
What better way to recover from your hangover the morning after Independence Day than by watching some wacky J-Horror in this official trailer (via ShockTillYouDrop) for Hideo Nakata's The Incite Mill. That's a very industrial name for a kooky Japanese horror film but who cares, since it looks crazy fun. Nakata is the director behind the original Ringu and Dark Water and is back with this William Castle-like flick. The film follows a group of 10 strangers invited to a mansion where, if they obey certain rules and survive their seven day stay, they'll score thousands in cash. It doesn't have subtitles, so you'll have to make do with Japanese.

Ten strangers who agree to take the same lucrative job find themselves locked in an underground complex and forced to play a murder game for seven days. But if they can survive, they'll score thousands in cash.
The Incite Mill, or "Inshite miru: 7-kakan no desu gêmu" in Japanese, is directed by Hideo Nakata, of films like Ringu & Ringu 2, Dark Water, Sleeping Bride, Kaidan, Death Note 3 and the Cannes Film Fest stinker Chatroom previously. The screenplay was written by Satoshi Suzuki (Ôedo Reipuman, Spellbound, Nobody to Watch Over Me) based on Honobu Yonezawa's novel. The film will hit theaters in Japanese this October, but doesn't have a US release date nor a distributor. Maybe we'll see this at a film festival soon. Thoughts?
