Star Rating: 5
Newspaper reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) was naturally skeptical of the story. It sounded like just another urban legend: a videotape filled with nightmarish images, leading to a phone call foretelling the viewer’s death in exactly 7 days. That was until four teens died mysteriously one week after watching such a tape. Curious, Rachel tracks down the video and watches it … and now, she has just 7 days to unravel the mystery of the “Ring.”
Rated PG-13, 1 hr. 55 min., 2002
Originally an adaptation of a Japanese horror film called Ringu. This is an excellent movie. It was interesting learning about Samara who never sleeps and drives her mother and the horses crazy. Disturbing images are projected on this video tape that when people see it they get the call that they only have 7 days left before they die. The tape and the water is not believable but they are elements that make up the language of this film. The good horror is coming out of Japan.
