Here’s an extremely novel idea: Take an exceptionally well-worn concept, get the original author to pen a brand new story, and then present the final product in the third dimension. What am I talking about, you ask? Why, it’s “Sadako 3D”, the latest installment in the neverending “Ring” saga. This particular tale was written by Koji Suzuki, the individual responsible creating one of the most chilling horror villains in history. In my opinion, anyway. I’ve always had a soft spot for poor Sadako and her deranged little video.

Here’s the official synopsis for the aforementioned title:

At a high school where Akana Aikawa works as a teacher, a rumor exists of a video. The video is purported to show someone committing suicide. Then Akane Aikawa’s student Noriko kills herself. During that time, more suspicious deaths occur one after another. The police concludes that the deaths are suicides. What the police miss is that a key element exists in all of the students’ deaths. All of them watched a video before they died. Akane Aikawa now holds the key to the revival of Sadako and must defeat her once and for all.

“Sadako 3D” will bow in Japanese theaters on May 12th, 2012. Kadokawa Pictures will release the film, which stars Satomi Ishihara and Koji Seto. Check out the imagery below.
