Sadako vs. Kayako teaser

The official teaser trailer for the craziest horror mashup since Freddy vs. Jason is here, and I couldn’t be more excited. In case you don’t recognize the names, Sadako is the ghost in the original Japanese Ring movies, while Kayako is the ghost from Ju-On (aka The Grudge, both the Japanese ones and the American remake/sequels). Check out the teaser here.

That the two biggest franchises in modern J-horror are finally coming together is perhaps not surprising, since it’s already happened with so many American horror franchises. But I’m always a sucker for crossovers. I have no illusions about how good this film will actually be–i.e., it almost certainly won’t be, given how crappy American mashups have been, and how awful both of the source franchises have become in recent iterations (see Sadako 3D). But my hero Shiraishi Koji is directing it, which is definitely cause to look forward to its release in June.
