Sadako 3D is on it’s way to Blu-ray & DVD this Halloween in Japan. Presented in 3 different formats, Sadako 3D [Blu-ray+DVD] [Blu-ray], Sadako 3D 2D Version DVD, and Sadako 3D Sadako no Noroi Bako [Limited Pressing] [Blu-ray].
Sadly the releases are only Region 2, but for those who have region free Blu-rays and DVDS you are in luck. Sadako 3D was directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa (Handsome Suit, High School Debut) with a brand new story by Ring creator Koji Suzuki. Satomi Ishihara, Koji Seto, Yusuke Yamamoto, Ryosei Tayama, and Ai Hashimoto in the title role of Sadako Yamamura make up the main cast.
SYNOPSIS: 13 years after the original Ring movie, Sadako returns to the big screen in 3D! 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.
