Ceremonial first pitches are often used as vehicles for movie promotion. You know the drill. An actor or actress takes the mound, lobs one over the plate, collects some cheap applause, and retreats to the dugout. Some are good. Some are bad. Some are all right, all right, all right.
And some are terrifying.
On Thursday, prior to the game between the Uni-President Lions and the Lamigo Monkeys of the Chinese Professional Baseball League, several characters from the Japanese horror movie Sadako vs. Kayako were invited to throw out the first pitch. They proceeded to engage in…well…who knows what exactly they were doing? Whatever it was, it was creepy. Really creepy.
Watch the inexplicable, nightmare-inducing footage below.
No U.S. release date is currently scheduled for Sadako vs Kayako, which is probably just as well.
