Three years later, Hideki is divorced from Ayaka, who is researching paranormal people who claim to have read an evil newspaper anticipating the future.

Viewing Notes

Based on a very popular manga story. I can understand why as it is so Japanese (a cursed newspaper tells of the person’s future death and there is no way to stop it once the person has read the story). Overall this is pretty good. Didn’t quite grab me like RINGU but worth the watch. I enjoyed watching the interviews w/the cast and director in the extras.
