Shock broke the news in March regarding the latest film to come from Takashi (The Grudge) Shimizu, Scared of the Dark.

At the time, we learned David Gallagher (Super 8), Morgane Slemp (pictured) and Jake Webber were set to star in the supernatural thriller which finds Shimizu reteaming with his Grudge scribe Stephen Susco.  Today, we have learned Chloe Auger, Yuya Ozeki (“Toshio” from Ju-On/The Grudge) and Teruyuki Kagawa (Tormented) have joined the cast.

The producers – Takashige Ichise and Maya Fukuzawa, Robery G. Tapert and Kazue Udagawa – are circling Alison Lohman (Drag Me to Hell) and Marielle Jaffe (Scream 4) for roles in the film as well.
