That’s right folks, it’s really happening; the creepy, creaky, jolting battle of the ages is about to emerge straight out of Japan on June 18, 2016. What started as an April Fools’ prank, quickly became an idea with legs that NBC Universal Japan decided to run with after seeing how well-received the concept was. Fans of both, “The Grudge” and “The Ring” franchises voiced their desire to see this battle play out on the big screen and there is a new trailer proving their wish has been granted.
The trailer for “Sadako Vs. Kayako” does not have English subtitles, however, it wouldn’t take much to get these two vengeful spirits (and all their hair) in the same place. One viewing of that cursed VHS tape in the house where Kayako and her creepy little boy Toshio still dwell would do the trick. There has yet to be any confirmation on whether this film will be adapted for American audiences, but if history is any indication, it will be.
It’s also worth noting, that despite the various setbacks preventing the original release back in November of 2015, the third installment in the Ring franchise, “Rings” will also be released this year on October 28, 2016, just in time for Halloween.
