New 1080P High-Definition Transfer From The Negative!
Deceptively innocent at first, Takashi Miikes Audition finds Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi, Suicide Club, The Grudge), a middle-aged widower of many years, urged by his teenage son and his film producer friend Yasuhisa Yoshikawa (Jun Kunimura, Ichi The Killer) to get out and start dating again. To help Aoyama meet women, Yoshikawa devises a plan to hold a fake audition for a leading lady. Reluctantly agreeing, Aoyama auditions 30 young hopefuls and falls for the silent beauty of Asami (model/actress Eihi Shiina), a former ballerina with a dark past. Their courtship veers from quiet romance to psycho nightmare, realizing a sadistic breach of contract between filmmaker and audience of which Hitchcock could only dream. (Richard Falcon, Sight And Sound).

Factory presents this 1999 modern horror classic in a new 1080P high-definition transfer from the internegative, with a new 5.0 digital stereo soundtrack mixed from the original audio elements.

The movie pace doesn't justify the climax at all, and this is coming from a guy who thinks Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a roller coaster ride. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Alex Miles
This is a great movie! Period. End of story. Hitchcock has been reincarnated into Miike and the results are as intricate as they are disturbing and when this old fart finds... Read morePublished 23 days ago by Yukio
I only watched this because my sister insisted it was one of the best horror movies she's ever seen. After watching, I have serious doubts about her sanity. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon56
