A brand new trailer has just been unleashed for Hideo Nakata’s (Ringu, Dark Water, The Complex) latest journey into terror, and if you are brave enough, then check out the awesome trailer below.

There aren’t any subtitles, but a new synopsis has been discovered which gives a little more detail on what looks like classic Nakata material. Few Japanese directors, or any directors for that matter, can conjure up the sort of atmosphere Nakata can, so I have extremely high hopes for this.

Ghost Theater (Gekijo Rei) has just sold to Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei courtesy of Red Pictures LTD, so here’s hoping a UK deal is struck soon.

Nakata is revisiting his roots with Ghost Theater, inspired by his 1996 horror Ghost Actress, made before he filmed The Ring franchise, which kicked off a worldwide interest in J-horror.

While Ghost Actress followed a vengeful spirit that drives a movie crew to insanity, Ghost Theater is set in a haunted playhouse.

The cast includes Haruka Shimazaki, Rika Adachi, Riho Takada, Keita Machida, Ikuji Nakamura, and Mantaro Koichi. The film haunts Japanese cinemas from November 21st.


A young actress, Sara, who lands a leading role in a major play, soon encounters bitter rivalry amongst her fellow cast members which escalates into out-and-out hatred. Strange things start happening at rehearsals and Sara begins to investigate a very real and menacing threat.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
