It's a beautiful day for a horror movie... Let's play two!

Back in 2013, we saw Sadako from The Ring throw out the first pitch at a baseball game in Japan. Then earlier this year, we saw the trailer for the upcoming The Ring/The Grudge crossover movie, Sadako vs. Kayako. You can see where this is going: Sadako throws out first pitch against Kayako at Japanese baseball game. (Via.)

Sadako vs. Kayako

What started as an April Fool's joke on the Ju-On website is now becoming an actual movie. Two of the biggest Japanese horror franchises (リング / Ringu and じゅおん / Ju-On) are combining forces to make Sadako vs Kayako. [more inside]

As the remake of Ringu opens in Japan, a rash of remakes of Asian horror movies seems to be winding its way through Hollywood. Not only has Hideo Nakata's latest movie, Honogurai mizu no soko kara (Dark Water), been optioned, the inevitable remake of Ringu 2 will occur, and the Hong Kong The Sixth Sense-esque The Eye has also been picked up for the Hollywood process. While it's nothing new to remake classic Japanese movies, this latest wave brings a lot of new questions. Is it near-impossible for the US to create horror movies that aren't increasingly self-referential? How long is it before we get remakes of Audition, Battle Royale, and Suicide Club? And will we eventually end up with a horror movie in the style of Fa talai jone, a Thailand Western influenced by Hollywood Westerns which were influenced by Japanese Samurai movies?

Don't watch this.

Don't watch this. Dreamworks is starting up the hype machine for their remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu (aka The Ring), and it looks like they're taking the A.I. route with it. The movie centers on a mysterious videotape that causes those who watch it to die seven days later. Websites are popping up all over the place that seem to connect to the 'mystery'. The first link up top goes to a flash teaser of the actual video from the film, but if you're brave, you can watch the whole thing at iFilm. I'm curious if this will indeed turn out to be an online game like the Evan Chan mystery from A.I., or just some better-than-average Web marketing for what looks to be a damn creepy movie.
