The latest film by Japanese horror master Takashi Shimizu. It’s the birth of a new bloodcurdling horror queen, following in the footsteps of Sadako from Ring and Kayako from Ju-On: The Grudge. Prepare to be haunted by Sana, a young girl who delivers a cursed melody that infects all those who hear it. Shimizu’s Ju-On paved the way for Japanese horror films and even saw a Hollywood remake. In recent years, he has delighted audiences with original works like Howling Village from the smash-hit Terror Village series, and now he's back to his horror roots with his latest film.
