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

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

"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"

" As a stand-alone this film is alright, halfway decent except a few clunky moments. It spends a good amount of time not being very scary, and toward the end, I think they are taking a few too many logical leaps to get to the end sequence, leaps that the book had time and pacing to elaborate on but the movie had to cut for the sake of time and pacing. However it is still quite the classic, there where some eerie moments and I loved the smudged face effect in photos, for 1998 when you had to get"

"5.12, PC Tämä oli tietyllä tapaa fiksumpi tukkakauhu kuin odotin, mutta pelottavuudessa tämä ei vastannut sitä mitä tältä odotin. Ringun hitaasti itseään avaava kerronta olisi varmasti toiminut paremmin, jos en olisi joskus sitä jenkkiversiota ja Scary Movien ivailuja kyseisestä filmistä nähnyt. Pidin kuitenkin siitä, miten yliluonnolliset elementit säilyttivät mystisen vibansa loppuun saakka. Elokuvassa nähtävä kirottu filmi oli kylmäävää tavaraa; jotenkin tuollaiset e"
