If you’re a horror movie fan you’ve no doubt come across the creepy J-horror films The Ring and The Grudge. Well, the two freaky ghost characters at the center of those movies have teamed up at the end of last year for a new Japanese supernatural horror film called Sadako Vs. Kayako with a US release on January 26, 2017.

You can watch the trailer for it above, which involves both ghosts being summoned to terrorise some teens and then presumably do battle with each other. Wikepedia sums up the plot by saying “After watching a cursed videotape, Natsumi has only two days before she will be killed by demonic entity Sadako. Her only hope is to pit Sadako against Kayako, a menacing spirit that inhabits a haunted house.”

It’s pitched as a horror-comedy and it looks like it could be very entertaining.

As well as the trailers the filmmakers have also set up an Instagram account to promote the movie, featuring Kayako, the white-faced spirit of a murdered woman from The Grudge, and her equally pale-faced son Toshio.

The comical account is billed as a “heartwarming parent-child diary” and features the ghostly pair playing in the park, having breakfast, hanging in their garden, having picnics, and doing typical family activities.

The only difference is they’re looking pretty supernatural and spooky while they do it. Plus Kayako is wearing a blood-stained dress and is constantly pulling an anguished, haunted face.

It’s a brilliant idea though and it’s nice to see that beyond scaring the crap out of people these two live normal, happy, everyday lives.
