Nakata's Incite Mill new trailer
I'm quite a fan of Hideo Nakata, mainly because he's responsible for the Ringu (Ring) series, Chaos, Dark Water as well as a few other strong horrors, and introduced me to Asian horror with a fright and a half. His next film is called The Incite Mill and while the plot might feel familiar, you can be assured the film won't be.
The trailer is rather disappointing though, as was a teaser I saw a little while ago. Neither really gave non-Japanese speakers a sense of the story, although it's Hideo Nakata so I'm always willing to give it a go.
Hideo Nakata has succeeded in scaring me several times, and to be fair his turn in Hollywood hasn't been too bad - he directed Dark Water which he also wrote, he was uncredited on the screenplay for the original screenplay for Honogurai mizu no soko kara, as well as The Ring 2 - he's a strong director, and even better out of Hollywood.
So it's great to see him return with The Incite Mill which is Japanese and looks a lot tighter in terms of budget and production, but at first glance delivers a plot that you'll recognise.
Ten people are locked in an underground complex forced to play some kind of murder game for some seven days. Those who survive and follow the rules face a huge cash payout at the end of it.
There's going to be more to it you can be assured, but in the meantime, here's the trailer through ShockTillYouDrop, and if anyone can find an English version or even translate it to give us some more sense of the story, then please do.
