Cult Classic Video Games by MitchellWA

Question 9

The 1989 game Sweet Home is on the list, a sort of survival horror/jRPG hybrid game that served as the primary inspiration for the fabulously successful Resident Evil franchise. The game was, however, released in tandem with a film of the same name, and development was overseen by this film director, who directed the movie of the same name (and could be considered a "cult classic" film director in his own right, with horror films like Pulse, Cure and Doppelganger). Name the DIRECTOR (given and family name), who has no relation to a far more successful Japanese director.
