Sadako is actually Sadako 3D 2, a sequel for the horrors of Japanese Ring movies (2002-). Even after several years, the cursed videoclip continues to take its toll on poor watchers. In this one, the spotlight is on Akane, 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.
