The first full trailer for The Ring vs. The Grudge — or rather, Sadako vs. Kayako as the movie is known in Japan — has been unleashed.
Kadokawa and NBC Universal Japan have joined forces for the hotly anticipated evil spirit vs. evil spirit showdown that sees the Japanese horror crossover movie feature a faceoff between Sadako, the vengeful ghost from the Ringu (The Ring) movie franchise, and evil spirit Kayako and her super-creepy dead son, Toshio, from the Ju-On (The Grudge) franchise.
As some of you may already know, the seeds for the movie were planted a year ago when a fan-made mashup of the Ju-On and Ringu horror movie franchises went viral back in April. The new movie will see the two evil female spirits come into contact with each other (with horrifying results, I’m sure) when a young girl and her friend watch a cursed videotape in a haunted house. High-fives all around for the bad idea.
Sadaki vs. Kayako is directed by Koji Shiraishi (Grotesque) and stars Mizuki Yamamoto (Ghost Hunt) as the movie’s heroine Yūri, the unlucky girl who gets caught in the cross hairs between the two evil cursed spirits. The movie will see a 4-D release in Japan on June 18, 2016.
