30-Day Horror Movie Challenge - Horror Film Remake...


Tagline: Before you die, you see... the ring.

Synopsis: It sounds like just another urban legend -- a videotape filled with nightmarish images leads to a phone call foretelling the viewer's death in exactly seven days. Newspaper reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) is skeptical of the story until four teenagers all die mysteriously exactly one week after watching just such a tape. Allowing her investigative curiosity to get the better of her, Rachel tracks down the video and watches it. Now she has just seven days to unravel the mystery. (Google)
Yeah, this movie scared the shit out of me. The faces...I could not forget the faces (if you've seen it, you'll know what I mean). Urban legends are a dime a dozen, but this movie turned the notion on its ear. I don't think anyone who has seen this movie has ever looked at a VCR, or video tape the same again. What if that tape you don't have labeled...well, you know. Yikes! Beyond the scares and the shocking moments, this one just has a great story. Of course, it's a remake of the the 1996 Japanese film of the same name, and that film was based on a book. I read it. It was really good. I bought a copy recently and I plan to read it again. Like I said, the story...the core of this story is just brilliant.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Yeah, this movie did a number on me. I haven't gotten up the courage to watch the original. I've been meaning to reread the book and maybe the sequels.

  2. I've been wanting to see the original but it's hard to find. But this was so scary. Love it
