Movie monster mash-up "Sadako vs. Kayako" hits Japanese cinemas on June 18, 2016
Not content to contain their ghostly rivalry to the silver screen, the titular characters of Sadako vs. Kayako showed up at a recent baseball match between the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and the Tokyo Yakult Swallows at the Sapporo Dome on June 01, 2016.
Sadako, the main antagonist from the Ringu / The Ring film series, threw out the ceremonial opening pitch. Kayako, the main antagonist from the Ju-On / The Grudge films, returned the pitch by batting a single, although she had to tag in her ghostly son Toshio to actually run the bases.
Sadako vs. Kayako is directed by Koji Shiraishi. The film hits Japanese theaters on June 18, 2016.
