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.
