Samara Morgan aka Sadako

February 07, 2011

Age is nothing but a number in hell, where Samara Morgan obviously came from. That cherubic face belies an evil so sublime it rubs off on VHS. Alive, Samara is a walking wrecker's ball, causing miscarriages and driving horses mad. In death, Samara manages to be even more deadly, tape-recording perpetual curses. Hey, at least she leaves 7-day notices by phone.  

Only the future-forward Japanese could think of high-tech horror as this. Samara is the American version of Sadako, the antagonist in the original movie, Hideo Nakata's Ring (リング).  

Shiny mane. Here is the trailer of the American remake, which launched a thousand Halloween costumes around the world:
