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

A very good movie

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

"1st viewing, PC/TV 2 March 2014 Directed By: Hideo Nakata Kyllähän tämä aika hyytäviä väristyksiä aiheutti. En pidä uusintaversiotakaan huonona tekeleenä mutta alkuperäisversiossa on lisänä kiehtovuutta, jota jenkkiuusio ei hollywood-kaavamaisuudessaan tavoita. "

"First viewing - Oct. 26th Wish I could say I'd already seen this one, but I'd be lying. I've been meaning to watch it for about 10 years now (much like Ju-On), but either didn't have access to it or would forget about it. Not this year, as I made a trip to my local video store to pick it up along with (which I'm similarly overdue to see & will watch tomorrow). I've seen the American remake, but found it overrated and underwhelming & thus held out hope the original would be more worth watching."

" Reiko Asakawa is researching into a 'Cursed Video' interviewing teenagers about it. When her niece Tomoko dies of 'sudden heart failure' with an unnaturally horrified expression on her face, Reiko investigates. She finds out that some of Tomoko's friends, who had been on a holiday with Tomoko the week before, had died on exactly the same night at the exact same time in the exact same way. Reiko goes to the cabin where the teens had stayed and finds an 'unlabeled' video tape. Reiko watched the t"

"21.6.2013 As far as horror-movies go, even if you can't say this is complete shit, in the end of the way it's all still way too eventless, dragging and just without any kind atmosphere. Say, even when the plot revels something, - which doesn't happen often - it's acted out like nothing was revealed at all. From the ending (which was a complete cop-out anyway) to the overall pacing, pretty much everything is approached that way, like as in the makers don't even care at all about the story (or ma"

"21.6. PC Rewatch, **** - ** Sisältää hyviä ajatuksia, mutta ohjaaja ei vain saa mistään mitään irti. Elokuva on kauhumysteeri, jossa ei ole kuin yksi varsinainen "kauhukohtaus" ja muuten sitten päähenkilöt selvittelevät mysteeriä, jossa ei kuitenkaan ole paljon mitään selviteltävää eikä heillä tunnu olevan mitään vaikeuksia. Sitten lopussa tulee elokuvan ainoa hyvä ja muistettava kohtaus, jonka jälkeen tulee aivan paska twisti. Amerikan versio pitää myös tarkistaa u"
