Baffling First Trailer For Takashi Shimizu And Christopher Doyles RABBIT HORROR 3D
Important lesson learned from the trailer for Takashi Shimizu and Christopher Doyle's Rabbit Horror 3D: If you smash a rabbit with a brick the spirit of that rabbit will come back as a lady in a bunny suit and drag you down a hole. Therefore do not smash bunnies with bricks you sadistic little bastards.

Hikari Matsushima stars in this supremely peculiar odd offshoot of Ju-On / The Grudge director Takashi Shimizu's The Shock Labyrinth 3D. Shimizu is at the helm again here, joined in directing duties by famed Wong Kar Wai collaborator Christopher Doyle who was originally on board purely as cinematographer only to later be assigned a co-directing credit as well. And what else is there to say about this? The movie appears to be taking itself seriously despite a very silly premise, a move that I think may consign it to the oddity scrap pile as I can't imagine horror fans really biting on this. Take a look below.

I hate to be that guy, but it's Hikari, not Hikaru.

Either way, Hikari Mitsushima + Christopher Doyle + Weird premise = I'm excited.

Fixed, thanks.

Once we got to the clapping... man, that was it for me: I nodded my head "yes." I'm really digging this Japanese period Doyle too. Don't know why, probably because it has nothing to do with Wong Kar Wai. Anyway, which festival will snag this first? and who amongst us will review it?

Todd and I apparently have been speaking with the same person, an evil bastard who hypnotizes you and keeps saying: "Hikaru, Hikaru, Hikaru...".

Nobody mentioned Teruyuki Kagawa. So I will. This could be good.

This looks cool but I thought it was originally intended to be a spooky 3-D film for children, a la Shimizu's last film? Oh well. I usually like Shimizu whenever he takes a step away from The Grudge world (Marebito, Reincarnation) so I'll be sure to check this out.

I blame you, Dutchman. Heh. I copied it from one of your comments on an earlier post about the film ...

Ah, shoddy research! That explains it.

Bunnies are nothing to be afraid of - just put up a rabbit-proof fence.
