Since the early days of horror movies, audiences have always taken great pleasure in watching our most iconic monsters battle it out. In 1943, Frankenstein fought the Wolf Man in the appropriately titled Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man. The two most famous giant beasts of all time threw down in 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla. The kings of the ’80s slashers turned their bladed weapons on each other in 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason. In 2004, intergalactic supremacy was (kind of, sort of) decided in Alien vs. Predator.
And just when you thought every potential horror match-up had already come and gone, Sadako vs. Kayako arrives to remind us that cinematic monsters will never stop crossing over into each other’s movies so they can fight each other. If that title doesn’t ring a bell, just know that this film is essentially The Ring vs The Grudge, pitting one evil stringy-haired Japanese ghost against another. This isn’t a joke – there’s a trailer and everything.
