Critic Reviews for Sadako

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (14)

  • A lackluster homecoming.

    Jul 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A routine sequel determined to pluck away at the same stale material, a cover of the greatest hits, rather than redefining the franchise for a new era.

  • The theme of Sadako, underneath the creepy crawling girl from the well, is the solidarity that survivors of trauma should share in order to make it easier to deal with.

    Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • While not repeating the now rather dusty Ringu 'curse' formula in the way we have come to expect, Sadako still provides enough call backs to the broader mythology and iconography established in the first film to simultaneously provide franchise coherency

  • Nakata even more or less rehashes the possessed-kid gambit that made The Ring Two so logy; if vindicating himself was the aim, all I can say is: womp womp.

    Jul 22, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite a premise that suggests an attempt to modernize this franchise, nothing has changed at all. What once made Sadako so terrifying has now become far too familiar and ineffective. It's time we lay Sadako to rest for good.
