Synapse is one of our favorite labels. They are like a record label in the 50’s; You see the name and you just grab it ’cause you know it’s going to deliver the goods. Even though GUROZUKA wasn’t on my radar, if Synapse is involved I want in….
SYNAPSE FILMS PRESENTS
OUR LATEST ENTRY IN THE ASIAN CULT
A terrifying horror film in the tradition of THE RING and SCREAM!
A fun getaway turns into a journey to Hell for some unlucky teenage girls visiting an isolated house to rehearse and perform a play for their private movie club. Taking the trip with an adult chaperone, the girls learn that a previous club member supposedly went missing in the house, and another went insane! Shortly after they arrive, a mysterious videotape is found with footage of a violent killer wearing a Japanese ‘deigan’ mask. Is this footage faked—or real? Soon the girls’ food and equipment disappear, and one of the girls is hauned by ghostly visions of the masked demon. Someone–or something–is in the house, and gruesome death awaits those who cannot escape!
Synapse Films presents Yôichi Nishiyama’s GUROZUKA, a stylized horror film in the J-Horror tradition of the genre-bending Japanese classic, THE RING, and the frightful ferver of SCREAM.
