Fatal Frame: The Movie (20??)

A movie was announced to be made by John Rogers of Dreamworks SKG in 2002. The movie has slated to start filming in 2006 in Japan and many fan sites tipped Courtney Webb to play the lead heroine, although she has recently changed talent agencies and has since been led away from the project, Courtney Webb's company said she officially was dropping her interest in pursuing the project[citation needed].

It apparently started in 2002, with a press release by Tecmo & Dreamworks, stating that Dreamworks had bought the rights to produce a movie based on the Fatal Frame gaming franchise. In 2003, news were leaked that the movie would be potentially 'fast tracked' with promises of actual production in 2004. However, no information of any kind were given at either E3 or TGS, considered the world's two largest game conventions.


Over the past few years, the Fatal Frame Movie has faded in and out of news. MoviesOnline was reporting tips that the movie may be out in November 2005 or 2006[citation needed], but history proved this information to have been erroneous.

In one ending of FF3, Miku Hinasaki is "taken" by the Manor of Sleep because she follows Mafuyu, but does not die in the real world due to not meeting Reika but just following Mafuyu. Kei becomes ash prematurely due to coming face to face with Reika in the Chamber of Thorns trying to do the Staking Ritual to remove the curse only to find she is already staked which she then gets up (in a disturbingly slow and akward way) and closes the door before he can escape. However in an alternate ending Kei and Miku are shown to both be alive(in pictures during the time the credits roll) and to have lived on after Rei vanquishes The Tattooed Priestess.



Whether Miku, Mio, Mayu or Kei will figure in any of the future installments is unlikely owing to these endings.


Miku - FF3 - normal ending - lives but fully tattoed. Whether she will disappear into the Manor is uncertain. Kei - FF3 - normal ending - dies.


Mio - FF2 - alternate ending - is blinded. Mayu - FF2 - normal ending - dies.


In a SPECIAL ending of FF2 (X-Box version) both Mio and Mayu live on.

Spoilers end here.

Story background and history

Throughout the series, references are made to Kunihiko Asou, a fictitious Japanese "Occultist" that lived during the late nineteenth century. Using western technology, he developed inventions that would allow him and others to make contact with spirits in the "other world." His inventions include the camera obscura, the primary weapon used to defend against ghosts throughout the series, the spirit stone radio, introduced in Fatal Frame II as a means to listen to the thoughts and memories of spirits that had been stored in special crystals, and a projector capable of displaying ghostly images captured on film that motion picture cameras could not see. According to Fatal Frame III, Asou's various inventions were eventually scattered about Japan and are now heavily sought after by collectors. The camera obscura used by Miku in the first game had once belonged to her mother, and Mio finds a different camera obscura while exploring the lost village. It is likely that the broken camera obscura Rei finds (which was sent to her fiancé by Mio's uncle Kei) is the same camera that Mio used in the second game. // Fiction (from the Latin fingere, to form, create) is the genre of imaginative prose literature, including novels and short stories. ...
