Remember Toshio and Kayako from the Japanese horror movie Ju-On?

Well, the two vengeful spirits have joined Instagram to promote the upcoming release of Sadako vs. Kayako, another Japanese horror film. (Fun fact: Sadako is the girl monster from the movie The Ring.)

If you're anticipating a nightmarish feed, guaranteed to make your blood curdle or heart pound, don't, because the photos of the mother-and-son duo are ironically humorous.

Most of the photos feature Toshio and Kayako doing cute family-bonding activities together or simply keeping each other company - a far cry from the supernatural murders they're famous for doing.

Twitter users who came across the account thought the posts were funny as well. 

Who knows? An account for Sadako might be in the works too.

We'll keep our eyes peeled.
