Gentle Giant has secured the rights to figures based on characters from films produced by Sam Raimi's "Ghost House Pictures". Movies from GHP include... 30 Days of Night, Boogeyman, Boogeyman 2, Monkey's Paw, Rise, Siren, The Evil Dead (Remake), The Grudge, The Grudge 2, and The Messengers. Cool beans.
The first series is due out in May of 2008 and will consist of 4 figures. 3 from the upcoming "30 Days of Night" and 1 from "The Grudge". There's no pictures or word of what characters will be produced as of yet. But some idea can be gleamed from the image supplied along with the pre-order info. I'm sure Kayako is the Grudge figure.
