After the apocalypse, two little girls find Sadako’s tape.
Well… This was certainly a thing I read. I honestly don’t know what I was expecting.
This manages to be cute and creepy at the same time and manages to tell a decent story overall. It seems so random to put Sadako in this situation and die hard fans of her may have trouble reconciling the malevolent specter having any compassion at all. This is strange but worth checking out for the novelty alone. 3 out of 5.
As if this even needs a summary, this is the original Japanese movie about a woman who is investigating a cursed videotape that kills you a week after you’ve watched it.
This movie is damn creepy. It may not have aged very well in some ways but, yikes. There were plenty of moments that freaked me out. And it certainly made me feel old because heck, who has video tapes anymore?
Now that I’ve seen the original, I actually find the remake to be on par with it. They’re both creepy, both have this great tone and lingering uneasiness. I can’t say definitively one is better than the other. I like them both. It’s a shame it took me so long to get to watch this one.
