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.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1739 movies items)

" While I can’t guarantee that you won’t literally “Die in seven days” after watching the film, I can guarantee that you will be seriously freaked out by this relentlessly dark film. Based on the novel and graphic novel by Koji Suzuki, you will die in seven days of seeing the tape in the film, unless YOU solve the mystery! DON’T WATCH iT! Also followed by sequels and an American remake. Repeat viewings made Ring a cult classic. AGAIN, DON’T WATCH THE TAPE! You have been warned!"

"3.1. Blu-ray Ihmisen pahuus puhuttelee maallisella ja yliluonnollisella tasolla. En ihan kaikista teknisistä ja kerronnallisista keinoista innostunut (varmaan halusin oikeasti K. Kurosawaa), mutta erityisesti loppujakso on yllättävänkin karmivaa ja yksinkertaisesti tehokkuudessaan oikeastaan virheettömän oloista. Sadakon tarina ja motiivit kyllä avataan, mutta missään vaiheessa ei tunnu turhan selitellyltä tai helpolta. Loppu jää miellyttävän auki, vaikka päähahmo yhdessä katso"
