From Director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge, Ju-on), Childhood friends Ken, Motoki, and Rin estranged for years but now reunited 10 years later are joined by the last of their group, Yuki, who has been missing since her disappearance at the House of Horrors a decade earlier. Her sudden reappearance in Rin s living-room as a frail, distraught woman, has set in motion a string of terrifying events. The group brings Yuki home, where a menacing-looking toy rabbit triggers a panic attack in Yuki and she falls down a flight of stairs.
Joined by Miyu, Yuki s younger sister, the five quickly rush Yuki to a hospital, where something seems terribly wrong. No one is there to help them and not a patient is in sight. In the midst of the confusion, Yuki disappears. The night of terror that ensues, where Ken, Rin, Motoki and Miyu must navigate the labyrinth-like corridors of the hospital as well as their own minds, are forced to confront their past, unearth long-suppressed memories, and test the resilience of their sanity.

I'm not going to talk about the storyline because to do so would be to spoil the plot twists and turns. Suffice it to say, fans of Japanese horror cinema will enjoy this film. Even a relative newcomer to the game like myself found many things to appreciate about Shock Labyrinth. Japanese style horror is far more cerebral than American and I really like that. The slasher flick has its place, but more like this please.
Shimizu has a way with pulling you into his films and getting you emotionally involved. He takes you through all sorts of different emotions, from fear to sadness to empathy all in a 90 minute time period. His work goes so much deeper than what American viewers have seen with his "The Grudge" movies.
Consumers and fans of intelligent horror films will love the "Shock Labyrinth 3D" Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack. The movie is an atmospheric and claustrophobic journey through the darkest parts of a person's mind. The fact that it was shot in the actual "Shock Labyrinth" haunted house attraction in Japan helps with the distinctive character of the film. Besides a great movie available in both 2D and 3D, this has some impressive special features that make the whole package a worthy purchase.
3D effects are great for the pop-out element and the translation is decent. Do yourself a favor though, do not turn on both english subtitles and the english audio track because they are NOT the same.
This seemed more like a made for TV movie that would probably work for someone...else.
