A genuinely enthralling horror pic

"It's not of this world. It's Sadako's fury. And she's put a curse on us."

An adaptation of the popular horror potboiler by Kôji Suzuki, 1998's Ringu is a nerve-jangling and atmospheric Japanese horror gem that's destined to get under your skin. Upon its release, the film became the highest-grossing Japanese horror flick in history, and it has gone down in history as an influential... read more

I remember it as it it was yesterday. The first time, I watched this movie, I was so scared shitless... I was with a whole bunch of friends and nobody was really paying attention to the movie but I was completely fixating and the scene with the TV (if you have seen it, you know what I'm talking about...) was, at the time, one of most frightening scenes I have ever seen. The funny thing is that I r... read more

Japanese horror movies don't come much better than this. A mysterious video tape kills people seven days after they watch it. One TV reporter tries to uncover the mystery which leads down several dark paths.

It was re-made into a Hollywood movie that tried to 'improve' it but only resulted in making it un-focused. If you're lucky enough not to have seen the re-make yet, do yourself ... read more

A mysterious video kills whoever views it, unless that viewer can solve its mystery.

"19.06.2015 Positiivisesti yllättävää, kuinka vähän tämä muistuttaa niitä kaikkia jenkkikopiota, mitä genrestä on tehty. Alkuperäinen Ring onnistuu jopa herättämään ajatuksia siitä, jos omalle kuolemalle olisi asetettu aikataulu. Miten siihen suhtautuisi, tekisikö sitä kaikkensa muuttaakseen sen? Lopun käänne toki on tökerö, mutta nautin silti suuresti elokuvan vähän taiteellisemmasta sekä minimalistisemmasta tavasta toteuttaa kauhua."

“"It's not of this world. It's Sadako's fury. And she's put a curse on us."

An adaptation of the popular horror potboiler by Kôji Suzuki, 1998's Ringu is a nerve-jangling and atmospheric Japanese horror gem that's destined to get under your skin. Upon its release, the film became the highest-grossing Japanese horror flick in history, and it has gone down in history as an influential production, with sequels and an American franchise being spawned. Such adulation is wholly earned, as director Hideo Nakata has created a haunting motion picture which relies on tension and a pervasive sense of foreboding rather than big special effects or gore. Comparing Ringu to a clichéd teen slasher is like comparing a roast dinner at a five-star restaurant to a McDonalds Happy Meal. The Happy Me” read more
