J-Horror isn’t dead yet, at least that’s what Hiroshi Takahashi wants to prove with KYOFU (OUT OF BODY). Teaming up with producer Takashige Ichise the RINGU collaborators want to revive the once so vibrant genre.

The movie deals with the brain’s control over the human mind and body and forbidden brain experiments that open Pandora’s box. Starring are Yuri Nakamura, Mina Fujii and Nagisa Katahira. KYOFU is due for release in Japan July 10.

MADE IN JAPAN: HIGH SCHOOL GIRL ZOMBIE [JOSHIKOUSEI ZONBI a.k.a. JOSHIKOUSEI ZOMBI]

In case you’ve missed it here’s another, so far largely unknown 2010 entry to the high-school-girls-kill-zombies-girls-and-guns-and-chainsaws genre: Masashi Minami’s HIGH SCHOOL GIRL ZOMBIE (JOSHIKOUSEI ZONBI) is what it is and you get what you pay for (cheap, repetitive and a lot of fun, that is).

Look at the art work and I do not have to tell you what specific audience this one caters to or what other milestones of Japanese splatter movies its peers are. So lean back and let the games begin. Starring Bobby, Shu Ehara, Noriko Fujioka, mariko Kajiwara, Akari Ozawa, Hitoshi Ozawa, Kazuyoshi Ozawa, Manzo Shinra, Ai Takabe, Hiroyuki Tsuji and Mirai Yano.
