THE GRUDGE Helmer Enters The Video Game World With NIGHT CRY
Well, now, here's an intriguing and compelling collision of talents. Ju-On and The Grudge helmer Shimizu Takashi has joined forces with video game designer Kono Hifumi as a creative producer on Kono's 'spiritual successor' to his cult hit title Clock Tower titled Night Cry. And beyond helping to shape the game, Shimizu has already shot a live action short film based on the project with further film work a possibility depending on how the game is ultimately received.

For game fans, though, the familiar names don't end there. Also on board are Silent Hill designer Ito Masahiro, Final Fantasy XII and XIV art director Arai Kiyoshi, Metal Gear Solid and Halo composer Toda Nobuko, while Appleseed and Space Pirate Captain Harlock film director Aramaki Shinji is also chipping in visual design.

The story of the piece revolves around a group of cultists aboard a ship but to get a taste, just check out the teaser for the Shimizu directed short below and keep an eye open for more news in the near future!
