From the team who brought us last year’s Tokyo Home Stay Massacre, comes this insane hybrid of supernatural thriller and the likes of Battle Royale.
Karen is an American housewife living in Japan who desperately wants to fit in with her Japanese community, until peer pressure forces her to play the Kokkuri-san (the Japanese Ouija) with the other housewives, unwittingly disrespecting a local deity, who sets them up to fight each other in a deadly game of battle royal. A mysterious app gets installed on their phones to aid them in their battle. It offers the women tools to fight each other, which they buy with credits. But they better be careful with their spending.
Written and directed by Masaya Kato (not to be confused with the Japanese action star of Drive and Blood Heat), the film stars Ariel Sekiya, Miharu Chiba, and Eigi Kodaka.
Ouija Japan will be available October 19 on Amazon Prime Video and on Blu-ray from Leomark Studios and TokyoSHOCK Japan.
