Walter Presents is bringing J-Horror to the small screen this Halloween.
The online channel, dedicated to foreign-language TV, has snapped up its first Japanese series, Crow’s Blood. The gory bloodbath marks another first for Walter Presents, as it debuts the series on Film4, as part of the channel’s FilmFear season.
Inexplicable happenings have become a daily occurrence at Dolly International Girls Academy, coinciding with the arrival of a mysterious and quiet transfer student. At first, these incidences seem odd, even ominous, but not entirely out of the ordinary – a crow flies into a window and splatters blood everywhere. The new girl has a nosebleed and covers herself in thick, black blood. Then a student falls several floors off the roof of the school. Her body seems mangled, yet two days later she is absolutely fine. Could the new girl play a part in the gruesome and sinister events that are unfolding?
Created by iconic Japanese producer Yasushi Akimoto and executive produced by Darren Lynn Bousman (director and writer of Saw II, III, IV) Crow’s Blood’s tone borrows from both western films and the iconic nuances of Japanese horror. Bringing together some of the biggest names from both the USA and Japan, this slick horror is as compelling as it is dark.
Crow’s Blood will screen on Film4 channel on Halloween night as part of FilmFear, a season of premieres, discoveries and cult favourites running for six nights from Friday 26th to Wednesday 31st October.
Episode 1 will air at 10.50pm, with the entire box set then available to stream on demand through Walter Presents on All 4.
