Actually it has, under the title of "Utsukushii Yoru, Zankoku na Asa" and 
is already available on DVD. Haven't seen it yet though. It seemed to get 
more attention here for the presence of increasingly popular South Korean 
actor Lee Byung-hun, rather than for Miike's involvement.

Perhaps Jason Gray can fill us in on what's happening with this one? I 
don't know if "Loft" is supposed to be Kurosawa's entry for the J-Horror 
Theater series, as the official homepage is only plugging Shimizu Takashi's 
"Rinne" at the moment.
