Horror, Thriller

Synopsis

A group of teenage friends are found dead, their faces twisted in terror. Reiko, a journalist and the aunt of one of the victims, sets out to investigate. In the process, she uncovers an urban legend about a cursed videotape, the contents of which causes anyone who views it to die within a week.

Our take

Here’s where it all begins! The 2002 American remake marked the moment when “J-horror” broke through on Western shores, but the original Ring is still the definitive scarefest: a wildly successful (and just plain wild) classic from one of the most fertile scenes in modern horror cinema.
