I absolutely loved Ringu. When I first witnessed Sadako climb out of that TV screen, I have to admit, it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Unfortunately as time went on and sequels and remakes came out I lost faith and gave up on the franchise, but will Hanabusa Tsutomu’s Sadako 3D reignite the franchise?
Here we have the first image from the upcoming film courtesy of Film Smash. There isn’t much to, just a couple of pretty kids in scared mode.
Synopsis: “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 will be released in Japan on May 12, 2012.
