UK streaming Premiere. Exclusively on Shudder from 26th Jan
The mega ghouls of Japanese-horror face off in this Tiff Midnight Madness closing film monster mash-up of Ju-On (The Grudge) and Ringu (The Ring). After reviving the evil spirits of Sadako and Kayako, two university students and a high school girl quickly realize the only way to outsmart these vengeful spirits hell-bent on haunting is to pit them head-to-head.
