Ghosts Get Up Close and Personal in Sadako Live-Action Film Trailer

New key visual also revealed for latest entry starring the antagonist of the "Ringu / The Ring" horror franchise


If there's one thing you can count on with respect to specters that wreak vengeance from beyond the grave, it's that they've got no sense of personal boundaries, and such ghastly (ghostly?) behavior is on full display in the newest trailer for Sadako, the latest entry in the venerable Ringu / The Ring franchise of Japanese horror films.



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. The girl seems to be suffering from amnesia, and inexplicable events seem to follow in her wake. At the same time, Mayu's younger brother, Kazuma (played by Hiroya Shimizu), is a professional Youtuber who seeks to drum up more views by investigating a burned down site where 5 people died.



Based on the 2013 novel Tide by Koji Suzuki, Sadako is directed by Hideo Nakata and features a screenplay written by Noriaki Sugihara. The film stars Elaiza Ikeda, Takashi Tsukamoto, Hiroya Shimizu, Himeka Himejima, Ren Kiriyama, and Rie Tomosaka. Sadako hits theaters in Japan on May 24, 2019.
