About the Film
According to Asianwiki, the plot concerns “A young woman searches for her younger brother who was dragged away into an alternate world by a rabbit …” see Asianwiki for more details.
Who wouldn’t want to see a film about alternate worlds and giant rabbits?
About the Director
Shimizu is a prolific Japanese director and the director of one of the best, if not the best, contemporary Japanese horror film, Ju-on ( 呪怨: 2000), as well as its sequel Ju-on 2 ( 呪怨２), and the US remakes, Ju-on: The Grudge and Ju-on: The Grudge: 2. He also directed the more experimental Marebito (稀人: 2004), which is well worth checking out if you haven’t already seen it.
I will not be able to attend because it is too far away for me to get home easily that early in the morning, but I am interested to know what people think.
