‘Sadako vs. Kayako’ Trailer Brings the Battle of J-horror’s Best Spooks to Shudder

Sadako Vs. Kayako

Arriving on Shudder in the US, UK, and Canada on January 26th is Sadako vs Kayako (read our review; additional review here), which pits the horror icons from both The Ring and The Grudge franchises in an epic battle along the lines of Freddy vs Jason.

Grotesque director Koji Shiraishi is behind the camera with Mizuki Yamamoto caught in the middle of the two battling horror icons.

After viewing a legendary cursed videotape, Natsumi discovers she has only two days before she will be killed by the demonic entity known as Sadako. The only solution: pitting the demon Sadako against Kayako, an accursed spirit possessing a haunted house where everyone who enters disappears.

Ju-On: The Final, billed as the final Ju-On, opened in Japan June 2015, while Sam Raimi is producing a re-remake here in the States.

Here’s the official U.S trailer for Sadako vs. Kayako, which looks like a subtitled version of the previously released one out of Japan.

    This is an extremely shit idea.

    Better than expected (but I did expect the worst, so that’s not saying much in itself). It’s a very disjointed mix of straight horror and bizarrely ridiculous comedy. I actually wish they’d just stuck with the comedy for the whole thing (the horror side of things is same ol same ol), but whatever. Overall, it’s… ok’ish.

    Damn something’s wrong with the link, says it’s not available in your country (United States). Not being a dick just don’t know if you guys know or not.
