Funimation to ship Kōji Matsumoto's manga-based film in BD/DVD combo in October

The North American distributor Funimation began streaming a 75-second trailer for Tae-Gyun Kim's live-action film adaptation of Kōji Matsumoto's Higanjima supernatural horror manga on Thursday.

The manga is named after a fictional island where the brother (Dai Watanabe) of the main character Akira Miyamoto (Hideo Ishiguro) went missing two years ago. Miyamoto leads a search party of friends to the island and discovers that there are vampires and other creatures lurking on it.

Tetsuya Oishi, the screenwriter for the live-action Death Note films, scripted this film for Kim, who directed Volcano High. The film opened in Japan last year, after premiering at the Pusan International Film Festival in 2009.

Funimation will release the film in a Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo set on October 4. Manga Entertainment released the film in the United Kingdom last year.
