One of the best and scariest horror movies. Highly recommendable!

A largely faithful remake, this American version of the Japanese classic, creates a great atmosphere throughout, has an excellent cast and is unsettling and creepy when it needs to be. Whilst it does expand slightly on the backstory to the central premise more than the original Ringu (and it could also be argued perhaps a little too much), the question that has to be asked is why bother in the first place as there is little to set this version apart. It's not a bad film at all, but the similarities to the original leave experienced horror aficianados comparing their quality in the one aspect that matters - how scary and creepy they are. In this area, the original still has the edge.

Rated this 4 because it is a rip off of the Japanese version which is much better in my opinion.

If this would have came out in today's social media era it would have taken the world COMPLETELY by storm. This movie is actually perfect at being itself, acting and story is all grade A, how can I not give it a near perfect score? I would say yes it could have been a tad scarier but I'ma have to drop it a 9/10... Just because I know it's not the best of the best in the horror or mystery genre but still it's a phenomenal piece of work! Brilliant! Gave me nightmares as a child but today I can stomach it better (since I survived) but I had chills from start to finish and damn the lead actress was a beauty in this film, and the son's acting.. unbelievably well executed! The effects, brilliant! Even the horses exceeded expectations with their acting!

The Ring has a reputation for being one of the scariest movies of the early ‘00s. Lets get it out of the way, it’s not the traumatising masterwork that the hype would have you believe. That being said, I really enjoyed this film. This was my first experience with The Ring and I have to say it is More

I really appreciate "The Ring" for its well-written story and shocking, but largely gore-free imagery. The film's blue-gray gloom and rain-soaked settings, along with the accompanying music, setup the story and scares beautifully. Naomi Watts is very good, her character uses her investigative skil More
