- For those of you who couldnt join our SH group that went out to the
Tormented / Rabbit Horror 3D movie premiere in LA here's a quick summary
During the Q&A at the end of the movie,
propglenn introduced us as representatives of an international SCANDAL
fan club and then proceeded to ask about their inclusion in the movie
with the ending theme and stuff. This got the attention of someone who
approached us after we got out of the theater, saying he was
representing a company from Japan that works with SCANDAL and said that
apparently one of the girls was even supposed to be there for the
premiere! Imagine how surprised we would've been... but he said that
unfortunately they were a bit burnt out or whatnot after Budokan and
that didn't end up happening. But on the note of Budokan, I explained to
the guy how a bunch of us actually went to Japan to watch the Budokan
performance. I actually keep the ticket in my wallet (I'm not crazy, I
swear lol) and after I showed it to the guy he seemed pretty amazed and
took pictures of us with the ticket and of the ticket itself and said he
would send the pictures to SCANDAL's management!
So yeah! for
not having any expectations for the night at all really, besides hearing
Burn while watching credits roll lol, it ended up being a pretty
awesome night! and actually at the end our little SH group got a picture
with the director of the movie which was cool (I tweeted the girls the
picture trying to explain that this was at the movie premiere but no
I don't know how this flew under our radars but SCANDAL's "Burn" is the closing credits song for this movie

The US premier was screened at the Asian Pacific Film Festival in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago. Being a huge fan of Japanese movies I was planning to go anyways but I noticed in the online trailers that it featured "Burn" by SCANDAL. So some of the So Cal members made it an event. It was also Noodle's B-day. I can't tell you how awesome it was to hear "Burn" come out over the theater speakers.
At the Q&A I asked Shimizu-san (the director, also directed Ju-on) what has behind the decision to use "Burn". He smiled and laughed. He told us we probably won't like his answer. He felt that the song was his least favorite part of the film. He explained that he felt that the song didn't go well with the film. There seemed to be a connection between SCANDAL's management and the film's financiers. Shimizu-san also mentioned that the girls really wanted to make the song work for him and asked him for suggestions. So what I gathered from that is that "Burn" was written specifically for the movie.
I don't think any of us really cared if the song fit the movie. It was there. That's what's important.
