Earlier this year in Japan, the infamous Sadako from THE RING franchise got to go up against Kayako from THE GRUDGE series and duke it out until the er… after-death. But it’s been a long, long time since there’s been any (paranormal) activity revolving around their American counterpart Samara. 11 years to be exact as the last time we saw her on U.S. screens was for 2005’s underwhelming THE RING TWO.
But now, Paramount Pictures is aiming to relaunch THE RING franchise, and they’ve just released the first trailer and teaser poster, which promises that “evil is reborn.” How it’s reborn will be interesting to see! Check out your first peek below at RINGS, arriving in theaters this October 28th!
