The Ring (***)

Starring Naomi Watts, Martin Henderson, David Dorfman, Brian Cox, Jane Alexander, Lindsay Frost, Amber Tamblyn, and Rachael Bella In this remake of one of Japan’s biggest box office hits Ringu, Naomi Watts plays a journalist who discovers a mysterious videotape that is connected to several deaths.

I would have to say that the movie is creepy and not for the gullible, what really ruined for me was that I watched Scary Movie 3 before I watched the ring and the plots sort of mix. But I will talk about that on my review of Scary Movie 3.

The plot is solid and the scary parts were done at expected moments, but still strong. I think the film special effects were right on key and not overdone in any way. I think the movie is better watched at home in a rainy day than in a theater. Put this movie on your rental list for sure.
I did not get the chance to watch Ringu yet, but I think I will rent the movie one of this days… even though the movies share the same plot, I think the original might have some more to offer.

  1. i do advise you to watch the japanese version. scared the hell out of me. in fact, there are a lot of asian movies that scared me. look for ‘the grudge’ and ‘the eye’. the grudge is jap and the eye is chinese.

  2. I’ve heard that Ringu is way better than The Ring though I haven’t seen it myself either. I actually did like The Ring myself…I think what got me was that wicked video they kept showing.

  3. i really loved the ring. it is the first horror movie in a real long time that I have enjoyed. I especially love the part at the end when the girl comes through the television set.
