Unexpected specter celebrated her entry into adulthood with photo ops and more
On the 2nd Monday of January each year, Japan celebrates Coming of Age Day, a holiday that recognizes that all of the young people who are turning 20 years old are now considered fully realized adults in Japanese society. However, when Chofu City held a public ceremony for Coming of Age Day on January 08, 2018, they received a surprise appearance from someone who is also turning 20 years old: Sadako, the malevolent spirit from the Ringu and The Ring horror films.
After crashing the stage ceremony at the Chofu City Green Hall venue, Sadako handed out advance tickets to the Japanese theatrical release of Rings (known in Japan as The Ring / Reverse), the 3rd film in the American The Ring series, which hits theaters in Japan on January 26, 2018. The vengeful ghost also took the opportunity to pose for photos with groups of new adults celebrating their Coming of Age.
Based on the 1991 horror novel of the same name written by Koji Suzuki, the first Ringu film was released in 1998, and it inspired numerous sequels and spin-offs over the years.
