    SRS Cinema has licensed WELL SHARK (イド・シャーク, Ido Shāku) for release in North America. Directed, written and produced by Taichirou Natsume, the film is a practical spfx micro-budget supernatural indie found footage horror.


    Psychic Investigation Big Summer, a group which looks into psychic phenomena and the occult, received a video said to have been filmed at a haunted place. The video shows a couple of YouTubers who were filming a deserted old well when they encountered a strange phenomenon: the woman was attacked by a shark-like monster. Psychic Investigation Big Summer begins an investigation search for the missing woman and get to the bottom of the situation.

    Big Summer attempts to start their investigation of the wel but they are blocked by local villagers. Big Summer's Natsume manages to get close to the well but is attacked by a monster and possessed.

    Big Summer's Nishikawa and Momoka talk to psychic and occult experts. They learn that, in the village, the well was worshipped as a god that required sacrifices. Those who were under the curse of the well were told that if they chanted a certain incantation in front of the well, the curse would be dissolved...

    Details are being finalized, but SRS Cinema is expected to soon announce preorders for Blu-ray and VHS Special Editions for early 2024, with a wide release DVD edition to follow later next year. The home video editions will also include Taichiro Natsumi's 9 minute short film SHARK OF THE DEAD (2023),  a prequel of LOVE SHARK (2023).
