Shock Labyrinth 3D - Blu-ray/DVD Details

Shock Labyrinth is definitely a movie that has been on my radar for quite some time now. The film, from director Takashi Shimizu, now finally has a release date in the States. On May 8th Well Go USA will be releasing the movie on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and on DVD. Check below for full details from the press release.

PLANO, TEXAS.  (March 14, 2012) – Japan's first full-length, live-action digital 3D feature, Shock Labyrinth 3D debuts on Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack and DVD May 8th from Well Go USA Entertainment.  The horror-thriller follows a group of teenagers dealing with the sudden return of a friend who went missing a decade ago. When the friend falls ill they take her to a hospital, but end up trapped in a horrific labyrinth. The film was inspired by Fuji-Q High Land's famous “Labyrinth of Horrors” haunted house ride, and the film was shot at night in the amusement park.  Yagira Yuya (Nobody Knows), Maeda Ai (The Sword of Alexander), Renbutsu Misako (Ikechan to Boku) and Katsuji Ryo (The Shonen Merikensack) race against time to escape the maze alive in this eye-popping horror thriller from director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge series). The bonus materials include the making-of featurette “Behind-the-Scenes ofShock Labyrinth” and interviews with the filmmakers.

Ten years ago Yuki disappeared at the amusement park haunted house. One rainy night she suddenly returns, and faints in front of her shocked friends. Her friends rush her to the hospital, but what awaits them is an endless labyrinth of unspeakable horrors.
