It is refreshing to have a more current entry! Although I did also quite enjoy the original Japanese version, Ringu, I include The Ring over it as I saw it first and it’s heavily plot based therefore the original didn’t hold as much POW! for me. The imagery is unbelieveably scary. I think I had to spend at least 30% of the film not watching the screen. If you’ve seen neither and are ok with subtitles I’d recommend Ringu first (and if you can get it), but this version does hold its own.
Shannon's Overall View:
I thought it was a great movie!
I'd watch it again
I'd recommend it, but see the original first if you can!
This film is included on my list of The Scariest Movies of All Time
