The idea of different canonical figures from horror clashing in one realm has left the circulation of pure fan fiction since 2003’s Freddy Vs. Jason (yeah, I mentioned it). Now, J-horror is getting its own iteration of evil against evil in the form of Sadako vs. Kayako, which pits the antagonistic forces from Ringu and The Grudge in a demonic gladiator match. However, as it must always go, humans are in danger, too. So, a girl (Mizuki Yamamoto) watches a cursed video tape In a haunted house (I mean, come on, that’s a rookie mistake x2!) and whoosh, she’s caught between a demon and a…demon in a fight for her life.
Borrowing iconography from both franchises Sadako vs. Kayako seems to embrace a silly tone while still trying to startle its audience. Horror and humor is a fine line to walk, and it remains to be seen »

Wolfman Vs. Frankenstein. Freddy Vs. Jason. Alien Vs. Predator. Dollman Vs. Demonic Toys. And now we can add Sadako V Kayako (the monsters from The Ring and The Grudge, respectively) to the pantheon of horror movie beat-em-ups.

Preceded by the likes of “Alien vs. Predator” and “Freddy vs. Jason,” the film makes no secret of being total fan service for the two respective J-horror franchises. (Both have been remade here in America, of course, though purists contend that neither live up to the original.) The trailer gives a brief rundown of the two villains’ mythologies — Sadako comes from a cursed VHS, while Kayako is tied to the house in which she died — before setting them loose on one another, ostensibly as a means of »

2016 was chock-full of big blockbuster releases, many of which either failed to make a sizable profit or were incredibly divisive among audiences. But out of the ashes rose a beautiful flower: the indie film. Yes, independent movies had a wonderful year, some even breaking per-theater records and making their way onto my favorites of 2016 list, which also includes a Denis Villeneuve film, a comic book series, collectibles, an excellent comprehensive horror documentary, and more.
Arrival: Denis Villeneuve's Arrival is a beautiful take on language and how communication (or the lack of proper communication) can either doom or ensure our survival as human beings on this planet. The way Villeneuve tells a story is the perfect fit for a film like Arrival because its focus is small but the ideas are big, much like his previous works, Enemy, Sicario, and Prisoners.
