“Battle Royale” Meets The Mysterious Board Game in “Ouija Japan”

Friday, September 10, 2021 | News

“Karen is an American housewife living in Japan who desperately wants to fit in with her Japanese community, until peer pressure forces her to play the Kokkuri-san (the Japanese Ouija) with the other housewives, unwittingly disrespecting a local deity, who sets them up to fight each other in a deadly game of battle royal. A mysterious app gets installed on their phones to aid them in their battle. It offers the women tools to fight each other, which they buy with credits. But they better be careful with their spending”

A female-led action/horror hybrid, OUIJUA JAPAN combines the mystery of the Ouija board and the mayhem of Kinji Fukasaku’s Battle Royale for a fresh twist on popular genre elements.

OUIJA JAPAN will be available on October 19th on Amazon Prime Video and on Blu-ray from Leomark Studios and TokyoSHOCK Japan.
