Shikoku in January

Ventura International have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Shikoku for 24th January 2005 priced at £15.99. This is the first title from Ventura International's series of Adness / Kadokawa Japanese horror movies, the production company behind the original version of The Ring.

The island of Shikoku is one of Japan's most rural provinces, with few large cities and scores of small villages scattered amongst the high mountains. The name translates as "Four Countries," but an alternate spelling can be read "The Land of the Dead." This film makes use of both aspects of Shikoku, both the semi-archaic, rural lifestyle of a Shikoku mountain village and the ghosts that haunt there.

"Shikoku" the DVD includes a number of special features, including interviews with Nagasaki Shunichi, the Director, and the two main female cast members Kuriyama Chiaki and Natsukawa Yui, as well as a "Making of " featurette. Trailers and TV Spots are also included.

The film is presented in Widescreen, Japanese with English subtitles giving you a choice of Dolby Digital 5.1 & DTS 5.1 Surround.
