CULT (2013) Koji Shiraishi\'s tale of a Japanese Exorcism

Koji Shiraishi's 'Possession and Exorcism' Tale from Japan


director: Koji Shiraishi
starring: Yu Abiru · Mari Iriki · Mayuko Iwasa · Ryosuke Miura · Natsuki Okamoto · Sayuri Oyamada


Three young, aspiring actresses are hired to help a documentarian film an exorcism at the house of a young girl and her mother. Cameras are set up everywhere as the supernatural events start to unfold. A variety of monks are brought in for exorcisms but the demonic possession only gets worse as everyone is drawn into an increasingly dangerous nightmare of of horror.

Of the actresses, Mayuko Iwasa is probably the most recognizable due to her many film and TV roles. She is best known as the cyborg Mylene in 009-1: THE END OF THE BEGINNING. Her co-star here, Yu Abiru, also found notoriety with the controversial S&M flick SNAKES AND EARRINGS (2008).

Director Koji Shiraishi is considered Japan's foremost horror director, responsible for 25+ films in slightly over 10 years, including JU-REI (his first in 2004) as well as the recent SADAKO VS KAYAKO (Ring vs Juon). One of his earliest projects was a joint production with Hideshi Hino, creator of the GUINEA PIG franchise, a supernatural gore film called DEAD GIRL WALKING. Most of Koji Shiraishi films deal with extreme violence in the ghost arena. An exception to this formula is his bleak, excessive gore venture called GROTESQUE (2010).



A Japanese film with English subtitles; widescreen format, uncut version (84 min.), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras include original trailer.
