Is the new trailer for “Yamagata Scream” awesomely stupid, or stupidly stupid?

Here’s the full trailer for Naoto Takenaka’s Yamagata Scream. Not much new to report on this one except for a few confusing teasers, although thanks to the magic of Twitter, we now know that Don Brown of ryuganji heard it’s crap, and Marc Walkow confirms that it is.
The story centers around a group of high school seniors who are forced to join a historical research club to fulfill a graduation requirement. Their teacher, Mr. Kachi, plans a mandatory club trip to a small village in Yamagata prefecture to study remnants of an ancient clan of warriors called the ochimusha who displayed legendary cowardice in battle. When they arrive, the local villagers hold a special ceremony and construct a “super shrine”. As a result, an 800-year seal is broken, unleashing a curse that causes the ochimusha to rise from the grave.
Distributor Gaga Communications is releasing Yamagata Scream at Cine Libre Ikebukuro on August 1, 2009.
