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.

Freddy vs Who?! This is the horror smackdown we’ve really been waiting for, as two of the most iconic ghosts in the history of horror come face to face in this wildly entertaining film. While perhaps not as genuinely unnerving and frightening as either Ringu or Ju-On, there’s no denying the enduring appeal of both characters and their haunting quirks.
