Imagine taking all your pain/rage/fury/TRUMPangst and scorching it onto a VHS from the 90s so that everyone who sees it can be as miserable as you.
That’s what lies at the heart of Sadako, the protagonist (some say ‘antagonist’) of ‘The Ring’ franchise. I’m inclined to disagree, as those who lack empathy must welcome the opportunity to be shown! And, really, what is a netherworldly curse other than an opportunity to learn from one’s (or one’s species’) misdeeds?
That being said, this S.H. Figuarts Sadako is an exercise in learning just how versatile an art medium action figure sculpting can be. Sadako is a totally interactive figure, able to be posed with face/without face, with legs/without legs, tangible/partially intangible and coming through your television at you! Some really inventive features here which solidify her status as a memorable cult figure SPOOK and also as a really noteworthy entry into the realm of action figures.
