Every Baseball Game Should Feature Horror Villains

I know nothing about baseball. It’s not really a big deal here in the UK, we play what I am told is a drastically watered-down version in school called ’rounders’ – but my only memories were of trying to avoid taking part. I might have had more interest however, if I’d been shown this hilarious horror and sport mashup!

As many horror fans will know, there’s an upcoming a tie-in sequel to Japanese horror films Ring and Ju-On/The Grudge that will pit each of the film’s ghosts against each other. The Koji Shiraishi-directed Sadako vs. Kayako will hit Japanese theatres later this month, and the market strategies for the franchise have been fantastic. The Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters were facing Yakult Swallows when the two characters showed up to face off on the baseball field. Bizarrely, the character of Sadako is actually something of a baseball regular having appeared at past baseball games in 2012 and 2013.

This is why we need more versus movies…
