Sunday, September 5th

A grade-school boy was on holiday down in Izu with his family.

He wanted to go out and play...

...but there was a TV show he didn't want to miss.

So he recorded it on the VCR in their room.

But the channels down there are different from Tokyo's.

No station there uses that channel, so it should have been blank.

But when he played it back at home, there was a woman on the screen.

You will die in one week, she said.

The kid stopped the tape, and then the phone rang.

``You saw it.''

And a week later, the kid died!

What's wrong, Tomoko?

Who told you that?

Everybody's talking about it.


No, not her.


I saw a weird video the other day.


With Yoko and the rest.

Did all of you really go and spend the night somewhere?

Nothing happened!

But that night...

...Iwata found this weird video, and we all watched it.

How was it ``weird''?

It's hard to say.

Just after it ended, someone phoned us.

It was some kind of prank call.


Everyone else had heard that story.

Today it'll be one week.

Come on!

You're just trying to scare me!

I had you going!

I don't believe you.

You're so easy to fool.

But did you really spend the night there?

So what happened?

I'm not telling!


It's a secret.

Is it true?




She's right here.


Oh... Mom!

A friend came over.


Got it.

Yeah, yeah...

Extra innings. They'll be late.

Don't scare me like that.

Look who's talking. I'm going to tell everyone tomorrow.

I'm going to the toilet. Don't go upstairs without me.


There's this ``video curse'' everyone's talking about...


Have you heard what kind of video it is?


Don't look at the camera.

I'm sorry.


Have you heard what kind of video it is?

I heard that suddenly there's this scary woman...

...who says ``you will die in one week''.

They say if you watch late-night TV, she appears.

And then the phone rings.

Late-night TV? What channel?

I heard it was on a local channel down in Izu.



And is there really someone who died a week later?

No one that we know.


A high school student I know told me...

...a girl who'd seen it died on a date with her boyfriend.

An accident?

No. They were found dead in a parked car.

He'd seen the video, too.

It was in the paper two or three days ago.

Do you know what school?

No. My friend heard it from a friend of hers.

Ms. Asakawa...




About ten years ago...

...a pop idol killed herself, and people saw her ghost on TV.

Yeah, but everyone you ask about this one...

...talks about the Izu Peninsula.

Well, maybe that's where this one started.

Where did they see the woman whose lips went up to her ears?

Further west, in Gifu.

That was after a big traffic accident down there.

A big accident?

These stories get started when people die horrible deaths.

So what happened in Izu?

I don't know.

Anyway, I'm going.

Good night.

Good night.

Young Couple Found Dead in Car

A 19-year-old Tokyo boy and a 17-year-old Yokohama girl...

...were found dead in a car on the morning of Sept. 6...

Take care of it, will you?

Weren't you leaving early today?

Okazaki, will you do something for me?

Can you find this high school for me?


Call me when you find it.


You're changed already!

I put your clothes out, too.

We need to hurry.

Did Grandpa call?


Why did Tomo-chan die?

Some strange disease, I guess.

Zip me up.

Do kids die, too?

Sometimes they get sick.

But don't talk about that at Aunt Yoshiki's, okay? It's too hard for her.


Tomoko played with you, didn't she?


How's Big Sister?

She's lying down. Better leave her alone.

I'll go help.

Yoichi, you come sit here.


Does anyone know why Tomoko died?

No, not me.

But the police did an autopsy!

But there was no evidence of a crime.

People don't just die like that.

And it's a closed coffin. Isn't that strange?


You shouldn't just come in here.

Go downstairs.


Go on.



It's Okazaki.

I found the name of the high school.

Seikei Academy in Yokohama.

Thank you.

In Loving Memory Seikei Academy

Excuse me...

Was the girl who died in the car a friend of yours, too?

If there's anything you know...

They all died the same day.

Yoko and Tomoko. And Iwata, too, on his motorbike.

They saw the video...

The video?

Yoko told us they'd all seen this weird video...

When it was over, they got a phone call...

Tomoko saw it, too? Where?

They all went and stayed over somewhere...

The girl who was with Tomoko when she died...

She went crazy. She's in the hospital.

She won't go anywhere there's a TV...

The girl was named Tsuji Yoko. 17, in her third year at Seikei Academy.

The boy was Nomi Tadahiko, 19, doing a college prep year.

The car doors were locked.

I've never seen a corpse that looked like that.

Cause of death?

Unknown. Their hearts simply stopped.


Nothing in the autopsy.

They'd just started making out, then they just died.

Vince Russo

Vincent James Russo (born January 24, 1961) is an American author, podcaster, professional wrestling writer and pundit. He is notable for his tenures with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) in creative roles. Russo occasionally made appearances as an on-screen authority figure, and professional wrestler, in WCW and TNA. His writing style, which emphasizes shock value and "swerves" over in-ring action, has made him a controversial figure with wrestling fans. His writing has been credited with helping lead the WWF to record ratings in the late 1990s, while being blamed as a contributing factor in the fall of WCW and the decline of TNA. During a self-booked in-ring career in WCW, Russo became a one-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, scored televised singles victories over future WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Booker T (the latter to win his world title), and never lost a match. He also placed himself in multiple pay-per-view main events in TNA.Since April 2015, he has hosted a daily podcast with his company: "Vince Russo's The Brand". more…
