October Virtual Anime Club (J-Horror Edition!)

It's October, so that means it's J-Horror month! Join us to watch Ringu 2, the sequel to Ringu, the movie we watched last year (which was remade in the US as The Ring). If you haven't seen the first one, don't worry! All you need to know is that there's a cursed video tape, and if you watch it, a creepy ghost girl crawls out of a tv and kills you in exactly 7 days. Click here to access the private virtual screening room to watch.
