Genre: Comedy | Horror
Japan's most prolific character actor Takenaka Naoto returns to the director's chair for the madcap horror comedy Yamagata Scream. While Takenaka's last directorial effort Sayonara Blue was a sensitive drama about romance and mortality, Yamagata Scream is a completely off-the-wall effort complete with fish-out-of-water samurai ghosts, village of zombies, and nonstop gags and parodies. Teen actress Narumi Riko (How to Become Myself) is game for both screams and laughs as the hapless heroine of this wacky shriek fest. Yamagata Scream co-stars veteran Iwamatsu Ryo, Maiko (Yama no Anata - Tokuichi no Koi), EXILE's Akira (Be Sure to Share), R&B singer Crystal Kay, Haru (Koizora), and Takenaka himself in a characteristically hilarious performance.
Schoolgirl Mikayo (Narumi Riko) is traveling to a village in Yamagata with her teacher (Maiko) and classmates to learn more about a historical event that occurred there 800 years ago. As the legend goes, defeated samurai Tsuzuranuki (Sawamura Ikki, Kafu wo Machiwabite) fled to the village with his lover (Narumi Riko) and retainer (Takenaka Naoto), only to get tortured and killed by the villagers. The village is supposedly cursed, but Mikayo couldn't care less as she has more pressing adolescent headaches to deal with. When the mayor (Namase Katsuhisa) knocks down the village monument commemorating Tsuzuranuki, however, he unwittingly releases the vengeful warrior spirits of yesteryear. With ghosts running amuck turning villagers into zombies, can Mikayo get out of Yamagata alive?
