Independent film distributor Indican Pictures has announced a July 13 home release date for Ghost Master.
The Japanese horror-comedy will be available on demand on Apple TV, DirecTV, Google Play, Prime Video, FandangoNow, and other platforms.
A DVD release will follow on an as-yet-undermined date.
From director Paul Young (Flashback), Ghost Master tells the story of a nervous assistant director working on the set of a low-budget romantic comedy who ditches the scheduled project and pivots to his own horror script. Akira Kurosawa (Takahiro Miura, Attack on Titan Part 1) is shocked when his evil screenplay comes to life and begins possessing the film’s star, Yuya (Mizuki Itagaki, First Love Loss Time). As a bloodbath begins and Yuya embraces the spirit of the cursed script, Akira is forced to put a stop to his own creation to save the cast and crew from their gruesome deaths.
Winner of “Best Film” at the 2020 International Fantasy Film Awards, Ghost Master is produced by Kazz Kitaki (Rolling) and Kensuke Zushi (The Tiger Mask). The film also stars Mizuki Itagaki (First Love Loss Time) and Motohisa Harashima (Tango on the Campania).
