30-Day Horror Movie Challenge: Day 18 – Horror Film Remake…

movie poster Ringu 1998

Tagline: One curse, one cure, one week to find it.

Synopsis: “A reporter and her ex-husband investigate a cursed video tape that is rumored to kill the viewer seven days after watching it.” source

RINGU is the reason I started actively and intentionally searching out and watching foreign horror films. After RINGU, I realized there was a whole world of movies I’d been missing out on. Movies that, generally, went deeper and darker than anything I’d seen from the States.

I love to re-watch RINGU, but there are several scenes where I have to hold up my hand in front of my face to filter out some of its scariness. Hey, at least it’s not as bad as when I re-watch JU-ON — I have to actually cover my ears and close my eyes on certain scenes in that scary-ass movie.

  1. I have watched the American version and I am way too chicken to watch the original. Eventually, I will have hyped it up in my mind so much that I *will* watch it and say, “Well, that wasn’t so bad.” As least, that’s my hope…
