It’s not only Hollywood superheroes that are facing off in cinemas this year, with the villains from Ringu and Ju-On: The Grudge set to battle it out in Sadako vs Kayako.
Thanks to a fan-made trailer that exploded online last year, the studios behind these Japanese horror classics, Kadokawa and NBC Universal Japan, decided to partner up for a horror film of epic proportions. Check out the first trailer below:
For those who don’t know, Sadako is the main character from the Ringu film franchise while Kayako hails from Ju-On. Both Japanese films have enjoyed remakes in the US (2002 and 2004 respectively) and proved to be particularly popular withaudiences who were sufficiently frightened by the ghoulish beings haunting their screens.
This time around, two unsuspecting heroines will have to deal with hellish consequences after one, Yuri (Mitsuki Yamamoto), accidentally happens upon Sadako’s cursed tape, while the other, Suzuka (Tina Tamashiro), moves across the road from Kayako’s cursed home.
The question is, who will come out on top?
Sadako vs Kayako will be released in Japan June 18.
