Ring, Part 2: Spiral35m | Jan 21, 2023
Four years after the publication of Ring, Koji Suzuki returned with the novel Spiral. A direct sequel to his previous novel, but not at all its filmic adaptation, Spiral is more of an investigative detective story than a classic J-Horror scenario. Find yourself an author who can do both. The book and subsequent film begin the day after the events of the last film, with a coroner called Ando retracing the steps of the previous duo with his own trusty assistant. The story explores further psychic projections, the nature of cyclical curses and trauma, and has the craziest ending of any sophomore work imaginable. The curse is spreading and our top men at The Fright Files, Ben and Calvin, are here to dissect all of the clues.
