In my high school, it was always a truism that girl on girl fights were meaner and more vicious than guy on guy – so I fully expect the upcoming Sadako vs. Kayako to leave Freddy vs. Jason in the dust. On the other hand, neither evil spirit relies on hand-to-hand abilities, so who knows where they’ll go once they realize they can’t use curses and death-stares on a foe who’s already dead and cursed.
It’s funny – I remember Takashi Shimizu at Comic-Con years ago talking about spin-off possibilities, and he thought Toshio (or as he put it, “Little White Boy”) would be the spin-off character to fight others. Somebody clearly realized that pissed-off moms are scarier than kids who meow.
Are you ready for a Grudge match…in this very Ring?
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
