With Halloween around the corner, one student organization plans on creating a haunted house on campus for ASU students.
The Japanese Student Organization (JSO) plans to create a Japanese-style haunted house, as well as bring a Halloween-themed party to the Student Union.
The house will be made with the theme of the Japanese horror movie “The Ring.”
“The Ring” created a great sensation of Japanese horror in the late 90s and is the representative movie of Japanese horror films. It was also remade in the U.S. in 2002.
“I want to reconstruct the horror of the movie, and want people to enjoy the Japanese culture,” Yuma Furuie, president of JSO, said.
JSO was established to introduce Japanese culture to others and exchange cultures with people from different countries.
Since its establishment in 2009, the organization has held several events on campus, however, this will be the first time for JSO to do something for Halloween.
To make the haunted house more real and scary, Tonae Mitsuhashi, a junior theater major of Japan, will do the special effect makeup for the cast of the haunted house.
“I think it will be really interesting and memorable experience for the students who come to the haunted house if we can make it high quality,” Mitsuhashi said.
Mitsuashi belonged to an art club in high school, and worked as the scene designer for the ASU theater’s recent show.
“Since I’m taking an advanced makeup class this semester, I’m excited that I could help this project as a makeup crew. I want to make the actors look really scary and believable,” Mitsuhashi said.
The haunted house will take place from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday in the Black River Room.
