13 years after the original Ring movie, Sadako will be returning to the big screen in Sadako 3D. Kadokawa Shoten Company announced today the film’s official synopsis, although no director or cast have yet been attached. Koji Suzuki, the author of the original “Ring” novel series, indicated that the new 3D film will include a scene of Sadako coming out of a television set, similar to the original. He penned the screenplay.
“Akane is a high school teacher who hears a rumor from her students that there is actual footage on the Internet of someone’s suicide. The footage is said to drive anyone who sees it to also commit suicide. Akane does not believe the rumor at first, but when one of her female students dies after viewing the footage, she and her boyfriend Takanori are fatefully drawn into the horror that has been created by the man who appears in the suicide footage, Kashiwada.
Kashiwada’s intention is to create chaos in the world by bringing back Sadako and the power of her curse. Now Akane has to fight against Sadako and Kashiwada to save the lives of herself and Takanori.”
For those of you keeping tally, there have been four Japanese films based on Koji Suzuki’s popular Ring series including Ringu, Rasen, Ringu 2, and Ringu 0: Birthday. Then there are the little known Japanese TV Series: “Ring: The Final Chapter” (12 Episodes) and it’s sequel “Rasen” (13 Episodes). And then there’s the Korean remake The Ring Virus alongside the two U.S. remakes.
Coming out October 18th (US) is Victor Garcia’s (Mirrors 2) ‘Hellraiser: Revelations’, with isn’t getting too many positive reviews on the net so far – but we’ll see when I get my hands on it soon.
“Two friends in Mexico discover the Lament Configuration and unleash Pinhead, but one decides to try to survive by swapping himself with someone else. Once they go missing, family members go in search of them, but find Pinhead instead.”

The movie deal marks the end of a journey for Tancharoen, who will direct the new movie, says THR. Tancharoen directed a short film “Mortal Kombat: Rebirth” as a proof of concept for a Kombat movie he tried to pitch. A huge fan of the video game, he enlisted Oren Uziel to write the short and hired actors such as Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan.
The short was viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube, and although no movie deal materialized, he was asked to direct the 10-episode web series, which debuted in April, attracting more than 50 million unique visitors.
Off that success, Warners and New Line execs thought it was time to try to revisit a big-screen effort. (New Line made a Mortal Kombat movie in 1995, which grossed more than $70 million domestically and helped launch a directing career for Paul W. S. Anderson. A follow-up movie in 1997, however, fizzled.) Uziel is returning to write the new movie.
Some reviews coming today/tomorrow are:
Blood Snow – Grave Encounters – Just Before Dawn – The Blackout
Hope you enjoy them!
