The original Ring film was released in Japan in 1998 and was directed by Hideo Nakata. It is an adaptation of Koji Suzuki’s horror novel of the same name about a cursed video that when watched kills the viewer seven days after watching. It went on to become Japan’s No. 1 horror film. The film franchise is set to receive a sequel entitled in Sadako which is set to premiere in Japan on May 24, 2019.
QUEEN BEE will perform the film’s main theme song Seisen (“Holy War”) which you can hear in the latest trailer.
In the trailer, we see the fear-filled protagonist Mayu (played by Elaiza Ikeda) sitting on a bed, contrasted with another scene of her where her desperate eyes are full of rage. There’s also a mysterious scene of a small child with mysterious eyes.
Hideo Nakata explained how Sadako maintains that J-horror atmosphere while keeping in line with the “entertaining fear factor” of today’s movies. He also noted that the film contains strong human drama elements as expressed through love as a blood connection. Nakata praised QUEEN BEE’s song Seisen as being the perfect match for the film as they were able to capture and portray the movie’s themes. He admitted to being in tears after seeing the band perform live.
Elaiza Ikeda’s passionate performance of Mayu combined with the beautiful collaboration between Seisen and the movie are just a couple of reasons why you should check the trailer out.
