Japanese Horror Remake Shocker

Here's another in a seemingly endless line of remakes. This time it's a remake of Ataru Oikawa's 2007 movie which by all accounts was fairly decent. Saying that though it didn't exactly make a huge splash upon its release, which was through Tartan, so I wouldn't be surprised if this goes unnoticed as a remake by a good chunk of the movie-going public.

Anyhoo, this 3D version is being directed by Daniel Fridell and stars Rebecca De Mornay, Mischa Barton and John Diehl. I believe it is set for a 2012 release.

Synopsis of 2007 Apartment 1303

After moving into her first apartment, Sayaka invites her friends to come over and celebrate. During the party, she begins acting strangely, before suddenly running to the balcony and jumping to her death. At the funeral, stunned and horrified, her friends and family refuse to believe Sayaka committed suicide. Her sister Mariko begins investigating and learns that Sayaka wasn’t the first to plummet to her death in Apartment 1303. The room has a shocking history and Mariko is about to come face-to-face with an evil more powerful and terrifying than she could ever have imagined.
