In the battle of horror film icons, it is fair to say that the dream match-up was of course Freddy vs. Jason. A fun film, it could never live up to the expectation created around it, which could be a problem faced with Sadako vs. Kayako. Pitting The Ring against The Grudge is something of a dream match, but can it live up to expectation?
When the cursed video tape is once again watched, two friends find themselves on a race against time to stop the curse. With the help of spiritual medium Kyozo (Masanobu Andô) their may be a chance, by pitting Sadako against Kayako the known ghost who haunts a nearby house. When another girl is cursed by the house though,
My review says it all, but here’s what you can expect:
Those with a palate for J-Horror will be more in-tune with Shiraishi’s darkly humorous ghost story, as two of the meanest undead ladies in all of cinema collide for a
Borrowing iconography from both franchises Sadako vs. Kayako seems to embrace a silly tone while still trying to startle its audience. Horror and humor is a fine line to walk, and it remains to be seen
With that said, I wasn’t all that excited about seeing Sadako vs Kayako while at Fantastic Fest, but by the end, director Kôji Shiraishi won me over with his tongue-in-cheek approach to these two now iconic horror villains. Sadako

The vengeful spirits of the Ring and Grudge series face off.
Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman, King Kong vs. Godzilla, Freddy vs. Jason, Puppet Master vs. Demon Toys. We sure do love to see two iconic franchises clash together on the big screen don’t we? This year alone we’ve seem Batman take on Superman for eight minutes, and even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes collided in Captain America: Civil War. Wanting to capitalise on this recent resurgence, The Land of the Rising Sun has released a movie that pits the ghouls and curses from The Ring and The Grudge in Sadako vs. Kayako – and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
That fun comes from Sadako vs. Kayako knowing
With Rings due to descend into cinemas this Halloween it’s only fitting that we return to its source material as Sadako gets another outing. This time around though she’s got competition from another familiar face of J-horror, Kayako of The Grudge fame.
Sadako Vs Kayako was first birthed as a fake trailer for April Fools Day. However, after people failed to realise it was a joke and started to get excited by the premise, the studios saw money signs and hired Kôji Shiraishi to write and direct. Shiraishi then had the unenviable task of bringing the biggest Japanese smack-down since Kong fought Godzilla.
Both series of films have been around for years now and have become rather stagnant. By combining the two they’ve created something fresh to rejuvenate the franchise. Furthermore, thanks to events within, there could be more films in the pipeline.

There are a lot of things that make up a movie. There’s sound, acting, locations, lighting, editing, and often times, visual effects. There are a ton of aspects to visual effects.
