Happy Aloha~♥ Frido~ween!!~!! (゜Д゜;)！！
So are there any horror film buffs out there?
If so then do I have a special treat for you on this evening!~!….
…and this being the eve of the much celebrated festivities of Halloween, I thought how
appropriate if we’d watch a horror short film together ^^.
So tonight’s movie is a J~horror~ (psychological thriller) movie I’d seen Yada Akiko star in some years ago and actually the very first time I had seen or heard of her was in the drama series “Aishiteiruto itte kure” (“Say you love me”) in which Yada Akiko played the part of the younger sibling to Toyokawa Etsushi (awesome actor!!) whom stars as a hearing impaired man who encounters an unlikely love~meeting w/ a young girl played by actress Tokiwa Takako ….this would in fact be my very first Japanese drama series that I’d watch so that one’s very special to me as you always remember your very first time right?! =P Today’s mini~movie is titled “Yukiyama” (‘Snow mountain’) which only runs about 30 minutes or so (32 minutes with the brief intro…) in total so it’s quite the easy watch for those always on the go as a single sitting will likely do.
Okay so the story stems from a horrific airplane crash where a small group of survivors must band together in order to attempt to survive both the extreme elements as well as themselves or could it possibly be an outside horror which has come to stalk them without mercy?? Things are even creepier when a deep snow is falling like in that old J~horror classic where a man’s deceased wife returns to haunt him when he pursues another love going against her dying warning placed upon him ….that film sound familiar? It’s really a classic and perhaps it’s even creepier in all black & white =O! Sorry getting a bit off track here (-∀-`)、…so tonight’s mini~movie is indeed fully subtitled in English as well and it’s actually a part of a horror DVD collection I’d purchased many moons ago so perhaps I’ll share~♥ more of these mini features in the future if this one happens to generate any interest that is ^^.
Following the movie and just a tiny bit of my happy cap~spamming♥ are just a small sampling of scans from Yada Akiko’s very first shashinshuu titled “Vivo!” including some of my most favorites♥….keep in mind that this shashinshuu was shot quite a long time ago so some if its styling is evident of just that although adding together a timeless beauty in Akiko~chan♥ w/ wonderfully exotic scenery is truly timeless in its own right I think! I also loved the photographer’s choice of going with black & white imagery for some key photos in the book which adds an extra touch ~* of elegance at times ….please enjoy both the movie and this idol book sampling from yesteryear ＾＾♥。
~”Yukiyama”~ (short film)~
A quick note about WordPress Videos here:
Firefox seems to play WP videos most efficiently,
while a browser such as Safari won’t play them at all for some odd reason. Google Chrome
works okay but still Firefox appears to be the most compatible ^^.
Samsung GALAXY phones use Safari by default as your browser so if you’re having difficulty in playing videos on WordPress with that platform then that’s most likely the issue.
So what did you think?
Just how creepy good that was!~!
I mean when they began filming themselves in order to figure out what was occurring and then the final moments and the revelation of it all was just so OMG freaky-frightening wasn’t it (゜Д゜;)！！
And now those earlier promised cute scans to help lighten to mood once again ^^♥.
While this pb may be a bit of a rarity there’s something also a bit familiar about the two photos above, you see there’s another idol♥ and one of most prominence in the idol♥ world whom has photos of herself taken in this exact same room as seen above from a similar angle…..the question is can you name her?
Hope ~* you have a fun, safe and festive Happy Halloween!!~!! ^^
And do remember!!!!
