Manufacturer Description

New 1080P High-Definition Transfer From The Negative!

Deceptively innocent at first, Takashi Miikes Audition finds Shigeharu Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi, Suicide Club, The Grudge), a middle-aged widower of many years, urged by his teenage son and his film producer friend Yasuhisa Yoshikawa (Jun Kunimura, Ichi The Killer) to get out and start dating again. To help Aoyama meet women, Yoshikawa devises a plan to hold a fake audition for a leading lady. Reluctantly agreeing, Aoyama auditions 30 young hopefuls and falls for the silent beauty of Asami (model/actress Eihi Shiina), a former ballerina with a dark past. Their courtship veers from quiet romance to psycho nightmare, realizing a sadistic breach of contract between filmmaker and audience of which Hitchcock could only dream. (Richard Falcon, Sight And Sound).

Shout! Factory presents this 1999 modern horror classic in a new 1080P high-definition transfer from the internegative, with a new 5.0 digital stereo soundtrack mixed from the original audio elements. This special collectors edition includes 90 minutes of new interviews with the cast and a new audio commentary with director Takashi Miike and screenwriter Daisuke Tengan.
