Last week, we brought you the super-exciting first trailer for upcoming J-horror smackdown Sadako Vs Kayako, which sees the titular spirits, from Ju-On and Ringu respectively, take each other on in gloriously spooky fashion. Now, a second trailer has been released to whet our appetites further for the battle to come.
Directed by Koji Shiraishi (Grotesque) and starring TV favourite Mizuki Yamamoto, the flick is set to hit theaters in Japan on June 18th of this year.
And, although it’s probably going to be a while before we’re given a chance to catch it over here (though Sam Raimi’s re-imagining of Ju-On should tide fans over, along with further Japanese sequel Ju-On: The Final), there’s now two, wonderfully creepy trailers to pore over in the meantime.
Sadako Vs Kayako was devised after a particularly crafty April Fool’s Day joke that went viral. The flick sees the titular spirits go head-to-head after their stories seemingly become entangled thanks to Yamamoto’s character.
Aside from being one of the most successful horror films of all time, The Ring is big business right now, with Paramount recently revealing their plans to make further sequels to the J-horror crossover hit an annual Halloween tradition.
