"Before you die, you see the Ring."


  • Director: Gore Verbinski
  • Genre: Drama, Horror, Romance, Mystery & Suspense,
  • Studio: DreamWorks Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 120 Mins

The words "Hollywood remake" may fill film fans with dread - foreign language movies ruined by a refit for the multiplex crowd - but this version of Hideo Nakata's Japanese horror classic from Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is a surprisingly good effort that retains much of the unnerving, creepy atmosphere of the original. An unlabelled videotape is in circulation, bringing death after seven days to anyone who watches it. One of its victims is the niece of journalist Naomi Watts, who decides to uncover the source of the tape and find out whether this "curse" is real, a quest that's given added urgency after Watts chooses to view the video herself. Verbinski makes a couple of inventive additions - a horse going berserk on a car ferry is a brilliantly surreal innovation - and although the spine-chilling terror of the superior 1997 original is muted by the overuse of CGI, this is still a worthy substitute if you're not in the mood for subtitles.
