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.
Watch the official Japanese trailer for Hideo Nakata's The Incite Mill:
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?

The Indian puppet is looking a bit like Jigsaw (Saw flicks) could be a touch disappointing...and I think that may tie into the scene where all the characters are listening to 'the rules' of the game. Im still rooting for this one...the cast is very good.

Tatsuya Fujiwara really only does the same expressions in every movie he's in (Battle Royale, Death Note)... looks like your average j-movie...

"And then there were none"/Agatha Christie copy with the 10 little indians? I predict a stupid ending coming out of this, buuut...we shall see. Hopefully, it is good. darn, I predict a Hollywood remake as well. :/

Has anyone noticed that sounds like the exact same low booming noise from the Inception trailers?
