Ever since we first heard that a movie pitting THE RING’s Sadako against THE GRUDGE’s Kayako was coming, we’ve been eagerly awaiting any news on how the hell to see it here in America! The teaser trailer was awesome. The second trailer was even better. And the marketing for the film in Japan continued to be more and more inventive as the summer release got closer. Now, we finally have answers as to when the U.S. will get to experience what is sure to be the battle of the year.
Bloody-Disgusting reports that VOD service SHUDDER has acquired North American rights to SADAKO VS KAYAKO, the RING VS THE GRUDGE mash-up. According to the site, the film will make it’s debut at the Toronoto International Film Festival, and continue it’s festival run through the autumn. It will then get a multi-platform release in late 2016, when it will stream exclusively on Shudder!
Directed by Kōji Shiraishi and starring Mizuki Yamamoto (GHOST HUNT), Shudder will be delivering SADAKO VS KAYAKO exclusively later this year. Stand by for dates!
