Shock Labyrinth is rarely if at all scary, but it certainly achieves all the tawdry razzamatazz of a funfair, and more importantly all the confounding disorientation of a hall of mirrors.
Audience Reviews for The Shock Labyrinth 3d (senritsu Meikyu 3d)
Great creepy little nightmarish Japanese horror; as good as the director's famous Ju-On series.The 3D effects really worked well I thought. The dream sequences were as spooky and reality-bending as a Nightmare on Elm Street film. It was fun like the famous 1977 "Hausu" film. The "Shock Labyrinth" setting of the haunted theme park hospital with its melted mannequins was awesome. The 3D depth really helped show off its creepy corridors and rooms. I could understand the developing story, and thought it all fit together nicely by the ending.
A surprising fall from grace for Japanese director Takashi Shimitzu, the guy responsible for the super-creepy Grudge movies. Shock Labyrinth was a drastic dip in quality. No scares, no atmosphere, poor story and lame acting. The film was made in 3D but it really didn't enhance the film at all, it's far from the likes of Avatar or even My Bloody Valentine 3D. Admittedly there was a couple of cool small visual effects to add a more creepy look to the ghost and the scenes at the end when the freaky wax figures came to life were very good, if only they were used more in the film. Overall this was just boring and not effective enough as a ghost movie. It could have been better, but even at its best it would have been quite standard stuff.
This was probably one of the worst asian horror flims I have seen. It did however provide comic relief for me and my friends in the early hours of the morning.
