If you haven't noticed by now, I'm a big fan of Asian horror films. I feel they have the best grip on what the Horror genre should be about and they continue to deliver. Which leads me to Marebito, a small film yet compelling and haunting.
In Marebito a fear-obsessed freelance cameraman investigates an urban legend involving mysterious spirits that haunt the subways of Tokyo. The film was shot in eight days but that has no effect on it's result. The DVD will hit the shelves on March 14th and comes equipped with the following...
- Japanese, with English and Spanish subtitles
- Anamorphic widescreen
- Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and DTS Surround Sound 5.1
- Interview with director Takashi Shimizu; Interview with actor Shinya Tsukamoto
- Director's Discussion of Ju-On, The Grudge and Marebito
- Original theatrical trailer and trailers of Tartan Asia Extreme's upcoming releases.
