Storyline

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. Written by Uncle Creepy / dreadcentral

Scream, and run out of the theatres and demand your money back.
1 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

DEAR readers, I have nothing positive to say about Sadako 3D. It's an insipid horror flick that's as bad as Seram Sejuk, which I reviewed last month.

Sadako is the fifth in the series of horror flicks originating from The Ring (1998), in which those who watch a cursed videotape will die, no matter if they saw it on VHS or Beta. Okay, the last part is my judgment.

Now, those who watch a cursed videoclip, of someone committing suicide, will themselves commit suicide.

Before I continue, I just want to say that Sadako is uninspiring, tame, unoriginal and downright silly.

I don't find it scary to see a thin white hand with long fingernails reaching out of a computer towards me. It even gets boring after awhile. All the victims will then shout and scream at the top of their lungs, but to no avail, as they will all commit suicide.

The movie starts off slowly, and viewers may be mistaken into thinking that they are watching a documentary. A videoclip of someone committing suicide is making the rounds and everyone wants to watch it; it's as if it's a sex clip of Kim Kardashian.

However, those who watch it commit suicide. This goes on for awhile before teacher Akane (Satomi Ishihara) decides to intervene after her student falls from her condo unit. There are also a couple of detectives lurking in the background.

Her boyfriend Takanori (Koji Seto) also gets dragged into this mess, that is, dragged into the computer.

Sweet Akane, the one with the shrieky voice that can break glass, which happens in this flick, goes underground to save her lover, but not before she runs around in an empty warehouse avoiding an army of gargantuan and ugly-looking hairy spiders.

They may look dangerous but all our heroine has to do to destroy them is to give them a hard whack and they'll disintegrate into smithereens.

Finally, what's this flick without long and dishevelled hair smothering our hero?

After this movie is over, viewers will want to seriously consider committing suicide.
