Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Ringu is a decent horror movie with some genuinely creepy moments and a well-constructed plot. I think I would have enjoyed this movie much more if I hadn’t seen the American remake first. The US version is very similar to the Japanese original. Knowing most of the plot before it happened took some of the fun out of the viewing experience. I also found myself unintentionally comparing the two films while watching this one. I know that’s not really fair, but I couldn’t help it.
