I really don’t care what anyone says or thinks or writes — I’m pretty excited for “Sadako 3D”. The “Ring” films were what initially sparked my interest in Asian film, and, believe it or not, I’m still not sick of the “long-haired ghost” gimmick that has been used in countless pictures over the years. And while I’m not entirely crazy about the whole 3D angle, I’m still quite interested to see where the franchise is headed after all this time.
Here’s a synopsis to help educate the masses:
13 years after the original Ring movie, Sadako returns to the big screen in 3D! Akane is a high school teacher who hears a rumor from her students that there is actual footage on the Internet of someone’s suicide. The footage is said to drive anyone who sees it to also commit suicide. Akane does not believe the rumor at first, but when one of her female students dies after viewing the footage, she and her boyfriend Takanori are fatefully drawn into the horror that has been created by the man who appears in the suicide footage, Kashiwada. Kashiwada’s intention is to create chaos in the world by bringing back Sadako and the power of her curse. Now Akane has to fight against Sadako and Kashiwada to save the lives of herself and Takanori.
“Sadako 3D”, which stars Satomi Ishihara, Koji Seto, and Yusuke Yamamoto, opens in Japan on May 12th, 2012. Check out the rest of the new images by directing your attention below. They’re not much to look at, but hey, at least they’re new. Right?
