This is one movie review where I'm not going to say very much about the plot. You all need to see this flick! Do
what you must to find it! Of course it's from Japan and was never released in North America but I came across
my copy pretty easy so forget all that you've heard and click on the movie poster above to buy it on VCD(They play in most DVD players, also known as Video CDs)!
What makes Ring great is the mood and it's originality. I've never felt so weird watching a movie in my life. Just
when you think you have it all figured out you realize you don't. Gotta love when a movie does that to ya! And
although the movie is in English subtitles it doesn't take away from the viewing experience at all. Five minutes in I forgot I was even reading subtitles.
No nudity, no gore! Just a great scary story packed with lots of moments that make you feel uneasy.
BLAH! I just read on IMDB.com that they are making a North American version of Ring for 2002 release.
They can't leave anything alone these days can they? I'm sure whoever is making it will fuck it up and allow members from N'Synch to star in it.
There was a sequel to Ring made, also Japanese. Trying to hunt it down now :)
"All is not 'well' on your TV if you watch Ring... little hint there!"
