Synopsis by Mark Deming
Japanese horror auteur Takashi Shimizu (best known for his international success Ju-On: The Grudge) leads viewers through a puzzle of fear and suspense in this thriller. Ken (Yuya Yagira) and Motoko (Ryo Katsuji) are a pair of old friends who haven't seen each other in over a decade, and when they run into one another, Motoko suggests they pay a visit to Rin (Ai Maeda), his girlfriend who knew Ken back in the day. When they arrive at Rin's place, everyone is surprised that their pal Yuki (Misako Renbutsu) has stopped by -- particularly because Yuki has been dead for nearly ten years, having perished in an accident at an amusement park. When Yuki suddenly falls ill, the three friends insist on taking her to the hospital. However, when they arrive, they discover the hospital is abandoned, and it soon transforms itself into an enormous haunted maze, where Yuki is determined to take revenge against her former friends. Senritsu Meikyu (aka Shock Labyrinth) was the first Japanese film to be shot in High Definition 3D.
