Speaking of Mother’s Day, here’s one last themed treat. Someone on staff in the SNL writer’s room is a Grudge/Ju-On fan like we are! Yeah, we know Kayako isn’t a Korean water ghost*, doesn’t vomit up black goo and that it’s Sadako in The Ring that crawls out of the TV. We’d be pretty shitty J-Horror/K-Horror geeks if we didn’t get that right.
So what happens when the Disney Channel does a new show about two kids whose mom gets drowned by a jealous man when she’s visiting Korea? Hilarity ensues. Plus Kristen Wiig nails it!
Click the big red link below to watch the whole sketch (and see some very familiar moments). I couldn’t embed anything because, well, it’s Saturday Night Live which airs on NBC, and this isn’t going to pop up on You Tube any time soon.

I don’t know about you, but if it existed, we’d watch the hell out of that show!
*Kayako Saeki is an Onryõ, the cultural Japanese term for a female ghost returning for vengeance! We know our stuff.
