Movies Sports

The stars of two of Japan’s best-known horror movies took to the baseball field at Sapporo Dome on June 1, opening the game between the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and the Yakult Swallows with an impressive show that grabbed everyone’s attention.

Sadako, from the Ring movies, threw the first pitch to Kayako, from the Ju-on (The Grudge) horror films. Supported by her son, Toshio, Kayako managed to hit Sadako's 96- kilometer-an-hour (60 mph) ball into left field.

While Sadako has previous on-field experience, throwing out the first pitch at games in 2012 and 2013, where she clocked speeds of 70 kilometers (43.5 miles) and 103 kilometers (64 miles) per hour respectively, this is the first time for Kayako and her son to make an appearance. The trio will be starring together in the upcoming horror film, Sadako vs Kayako, due to be released in Japanese cinemas on June 18, 2016.
