The official trailer for Vauxhall Rideshow, a horror film directed by Koji Shiraishi (Grotesque, Sadako vs Kayako) and designed to take advantage of the immersive 4DX cinematic format, is now available online:
The story of the found-footage style film involves a group of young women being trapped in an empty school while stalked by a deranged slasher and menaced by supernatural apparitions. Vauxhall Rideshow was specifically crafted to take advantage of the 4DX format, where the movie is accompanied by such gimmicks as vibrating seats, blasts of air, and scented mists to create a more complete sensory experience.
Director Koji Shiraishi compares the combination of 4DX trappings and the subjective, “false documentary” camera-work of Vauxhall Rideshow to the works of William Castle, an American film-maker known for including similar gimmicks with the release of his horror pictures such as The Tingler, House on Haunted Hill, and 13 Ghosts. Vauxhall Rideshow opens in Japanese theaters on January 16, 2016.
