ProExcellent well developed scares

ConsSome slightly dull parts

THE FILM I watched this film recently with very little background knowledge to the film (which is very unlike me as I usually go in with a good idea what is going on). I knew the film was based on a Japanese horror movie 'Ringu' and also the basic premise: Somewhere in Urban Legend land there...

ConsMisses a trick

The Ring is a remake of a Japanese film, but the concept remains the same. The film opens with two girls talking about this secret video tape - if you watch it, then you'll die within 7 days. Needless to say, one of them watched it almost exactly a week ago, and pops in in horrible style.We then...

The Ring is a strange, yet intriguing, it did get me thinking a couple of times and in parts it was very eerie. Rachael Keller ( Naomi Watts) is an investigative journalist who is reluctantly persuaded to investigate a mysterious video tape. The tape appears to contain random images which do not...

“Dont watch that tape!”

Progood original story

Consplot holes

The ring was first a japanese film, released in the mid ninties and fitted its usual scary japanese horror style. So in the early 2000's the guys at hollywood thought they would have a crack at it. It was good, but they lost some of the horror along the way. To be honest, the overall film isnt...

This exciting thriller is different to many horrors that I have seen, however still very memorable. The plot consists of a journalist investigating a videotape with very disturbing images that may have killed four teenagers, now even through the cheesy plot of a killer video tape, it really...

ConsSome part of the story was remained unclear to me.

The Ring is the best horror movie I've ever watched. Though I watched this movie almost 6 years ago, but I still haven't found any other horror movie as scary as this one. The thing I most like about this movie is the story line. It had such a turn and twist. Not only that when I was almost at...

Product Information : The Ring (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

In Gore Verbinski's remake of Hideo Nakata's chilling horror film, a group of teenagers all die suddenly and inexplicably exactly one week after watching a mysterious videotape at a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest. Journalist Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts), a relative of one of the victims, begins an investigation that leads to a mountain resort where she discovers the tape, which contains footage of random and surreal images. After viewing the tape, Rachel receives a phone call stating that she, too, has seven days left to live. As the clock ticks away, Rachel enlists the help of her former boyfriend, Noah (Martin Henderson), who is the father of her startlingly serious young son, Aidan (David Dorfman). Assisted by the intuitive illustrations of Aidan and the initially reluctant research of Noah, Rachel attempts to discover the significance of the cryptic tape before her time is up. The original RING, based on a novel by Koji Suzuki, was a cult phenomenon in Japan, spawning a sequel, a prequel, and other spin-offs. Although Verbinski's adaptation shares much in common with its Japanese counterpart, the director distinctly alters numerous plot elements and, in grandiose Hollywood style, employs a much larger budget. The beautiful cinematography is one of the more telling enhancements, along with added screen time for other characters, including the morose Richard Morgan (Brian Cox). However, the key to this RING is Watts, who shines through the creepy atmosphere in a role that follows her success in MULHOLLAND DRIVE. This would appear to be no coincidence, since the film comes across like a David Lynch version of an X-FILES episode that presents shockingly scary moments and makes the most out of the unknown. A clear cut above most contemporary horror films, THE RING offers genuine chills and will make viewers think twice before watching any unmarked videotapes.
