'Sadako vs. Kayako'
In the grandly disreputable tradition of Freddy vs. Jason and Alien vs. Predator comes this new face-off between two icons of J-horror. In this corner: the perpetually drippy wishing-well phantom from The Ring films; in the other corner, the pallid-skinned, gape-mouthed child monstrosity from The Grudge and its many sequels. A new generation of unsuspecting souls incite the wrath of these creepy Japanese spirits, and realize their only hope of survival is to pit them against one another. To paraphrase a great tagline: Whoever wins, we can’t sleep for a week. CB
