Zombies, Theme Parks, 3D movies and Japan…Together at Last


It is now August and Halloween is appoarching.  I know, Halloween is not until two months from now, but according to the store shelves it is time to get ready for this wonderful holiday.

So what better way to celebrate than to head over to Japan and visit Fuji-Q Highland theme park.

Here is a commercial for the park.

This park looks amazing not only does it offer huge rollercoasters but, it has its own horror section. Including the GeGeGe no Kitaro Haunted House. According to its website, well, what I could make out from the website,  it is a 3D movie attraction. Fuji-Q horror section also offers the House of Executions and the Labyrinth of Horrors aka Shock Labyrinth.

The Labyrinth of Horrors holds the Guinness World Record for “The longest horror-house walk through”.

Check out the training videos for the horror park. (If English is your only language, you can still watch the video and understand – you can start at 0:28, on the first video.)

On the horror movie and 3D front, Takashi Shimizu is returning to Japanese horror and is doing a 3D horror flick  called,  The Shock Labyrinth (Senritsu Meikyu 3D).   The Shock Labyrinth is going to be an original screenplay by Daisuke Hosaka but the concept is based  an attraction at the Fuji-Q High Land. The film is shot on location at the theme park.  Did I mention that this film is going to be IN 3D?!

The film is expected to be released in Japan in October 2009, just in time for Halloween.    **any of  my readers from Japan want to send me a copy of this movie when it available please let me know**
Here is a blurb about the film;

One rainy night, Yuki, a girl missing for 10 years, suddenly comes back. Her friends Ken, Hajime, Rin, and sister Miyu feel a bit of confusion with the sudden return, but they welcome her. Later that night, Yuki suddenly faints and they try to take her to a hospital. But the hospital they arrive turns out to be a decayed and very mystical place… like a labyrinth.

For those who don’t know who Takashi Shimizu is – he is the one who wrote and directed the The Grudge and The Grudge 2.

So, if you can’t make it to Japan to check out this awesome theme park, then you must pick up the First ever Japan 3D horror film, The Shock Labyrinth 3D.
