High school can be a scary time – and with films like Battle Royale, Japanese filmmakers don’t hesitate to capitalize on its creep factor.  The latest addition to this tradition is X-Game, a bloody and mysterious shocker from cinematographer/director Yohei Fukuda.  Danger After Dark will be importing this title to DVD for American audiences on December 4th and it will be presented in anamorphic transfer and in Japanese with English subtitles.  Read on for all the schoolyard shock details…

In ‘X-GAME,’  Hideaki is kidnapped and when he awakens the next day, finds himself in a recreation of his old schoolroom, along with his recently reunited classmates. Trapped and held captive by mysterious hooded figures, each of them must now play a brutally violent, version of the punishment game…or face death. A twisty, horror/mystery ‘mash-up’ peppered with dark humor and inventive gore, director Yôhei Fukuda’s (‘Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad aka Chanbara Beauty’) shows how revenge is a dish best served cold and not very sweet – Japanese style
