Sadako Yamamura, the restless revenant from the Ringu / The Ring film series, is up to her old tricks in a new format, because according to a new trailer published for the upcoming Sadako live-action horror film, it appears that the curse will be spreading through Youtube this time.
In Sadako, Elaiza Ikeda plays Mayu, a psychologist charged with analyzing a mysterious girl (played by Himeka Himejima) who is kept in a hospital under police custody.
