Description by OLDIES.com:
A fun getaway turns into a journey to Hell for some teenage girls visiting an isolated house to rehearse and perform a play for their private movie club. Taking the trip with an adult chaperone, the girls learn a previous club member supposedly went missing in the house, and another insane! Shortly after they arrive, a mysterious videotape is found with footage of a violent killer wearing a Japanese "deigan" mask. Is this footage real or fake? Soon, their food and equipment disappears and one of the girls is haunted by ghostly visions of the masked demon. Someone or something is in the house, and gruesome death awaits those who cannot escape! Synapse Films is proud to present Yôichi Nishiyama's GUROZUKA, a stylized horror film in the tradition of SCREAM and genre-bending Japanese classic, THE RING!
A group of young girls venture to a secluded house to rehearse a play for their movie club, and unearth a gruesome videotape that leads to a wave of brutal deaths in this bloody shocker from director Yoichi Nishiyama. Frightened by rumors that previous members of the movie club either vanished without a trace or went completely mad after visiting the house, the girls decide to be safe and bring an adult chaperone along for the trip. But later, when the girls stumble across a videotape featuring a "deigan" masked maniac on a vicious murder spree, their supplies begin to vanish, and the killer starts stalking their dreams. With death lurking around every corner and nowhere to run, the only way to avoid becoming the next victim is to face death and fight back.
