A disturbing videotape appears to hold the power of life and death over those who view it in this offbeat thriller. A strange videotape begins making the rounds in a town in the Pacific Northwest; it is full of bizarre and haunting images, and after watching it, many viewers receive a telephone call in which they are warned they will die in seven days. A handful of teenagers who watched the tape while spending a weekend at a cabin in the mountains scoff at the threat, but as predicted, they all die suddenly on the same night. Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts), the aunt of one of the ill-fated teens, is a journalist who has decided to investigate the matter and travels West with her young son, Aidan (David Dorfman), a troubled child who has been drawing pictures of strange and ominous visions. Rachel managed to find the cabin in the woods and watches the video herself; afterward, she receives the same phone call, and realizes she must solve the puzzle of the video and the person or persons behind it within a week. Rachel turns to her ex, Noah (Martin Henderson), an expert in video technology, who at first is convinced the story is a hoax until he digs deeper into the mystery. The Ring was adapted from a 1996 Japanese film by Hideo Nakata, which became a massive box-office success in Asia and spawned two sequels.

This movie scared me. i want to know who played the little girl Samara, and where the heck did that name come from? how did they make it look like she came up out of the well, and how did she crawl out of the TV? if you know anything about the special effects on the movie, let me know,please.
The ring was one of my favorite movies of all time it kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time the ending has to be the best ending for a movie i seen i recommed it to everyone
For a movie hailed as the scariest movie ever made, The Ring fails miserably. This is a very *eerie* movie, but it is by no means scary. Some of the plot holes can be filled in by watching the movie a couple of times. One thing that may not be obvious in the first viewing is how the tape was created, but if you piece the clues together, it's readily apparent. The movie is worth a single viewing if you've been curious about it. It *is* interesting to watch the heroine piece together the various bits of imagery from the deadly tape. But, in the end, this is simply not a scary movie. If you're like me, and found The Sixth Sense to be predictable and utterly uninspiring, The Ring is not worth your time.
"i don't make them, i see them and they just...are" (for those of you who have seen this movie, you know what i mean) oh my god i love this movie. it's so suspensful and really scary. I saw alone at night and i couldn't look at the tv for week. if you haven't seen this movie, rent it
Do not let anyone tell you this is not a scary movie, it was so incredibly spooky i COULD NOT fall asleep the night I watched it. Don't take my word go get it yourself.
i luv this movie! it's pretty scary and soooooooo creepy! there are quite a few scenes that made me jump! out of all the horror movies i've seen- this is by far the best! if u luv 2 get freaked out- WATCH IT!!
Before you die,you see the Ring.Yes,The Ring is my all time favorite movie.The story is just great and the suspense is awesome.Or,maybe I just like it cause my name's Samara,I don't know!Anyway buy it. You'll love it!!!
It's been a long time since I've been freaked out in a movie. The beginning was a bit hoaky, but when it really got into the plot, I was hooked. I still can't get the images out of my head....
This movie is somewhat scary especially the part where Samara comes out of the well with only her long black hair covering pratcially her whole face and then he crawls out of the T.V. able to reach her unsuspecting and speechless victims.
I saw 'The Ring' in the theaters with a friend of mine and the first 5 minutes I was scared. This movie had me freaked out.It was the best horror flick that I've seen. It's a MUST SEE!!!
This is a really great movie! It scared me to death :( And the phone ringing just as the credits started didn't help either. Anyway, it was amazing :) Loved the suspense and the story. I think the second one was better though
''The ring'' was the most scariest movie of 2002.I think you should see ''The ring'' because there is an awful secret behind the ring that you see after seven days is up and after you see the tape.
One of the best horror movie i've seen in a long while.
I am a horror movie person myself, and I saw the movie at the last minute at the theater, never even heard of it. When I saw it, it made me wait impatiently till it came out on video
i saw this movie late at night a my friends house and had nighmares for days. this movie is so scary but it is really good. if you like scay movies, rent this one.
Why was it a WOMAN who crawled out of the TV at the end and NOT the little girl? anyone know this? I really want to know.
this is a great movie that you dont want to miss out on seeing. this movie keeps you on the edge of seat the whole time. its plot is unforgetable, and the movie itself is one you will never forget. it holds you attention from the very first scene to the last. the images in it you will never forget.
First of all let me say that this is the scariest movie I have ever seen. Ok now for the bone chilling parts... On the DVD release that I have, during the opening warnings about copy right law etc... the screen will flicker and get staticky. also... when Rachel gets off of the ferry on her way to the island, a picture of THE RING will flash on the screen. When you are on the DVD main menu, you can navigate through it. Keep on pushing the up or down or whatever your dvd player has on it until the red arrow dissappears. Now press enter or ok or go or whatever and watch what happens... it will play the film that is inside of the movie that makes the actors/actresses die and you cannot stop it from playing. You can't pause it, you can't stop it, you can't fastforward or anything. Really, nice touches on the DVD release.
I've heard time and time again that his movie was very scary. I bought it for myself in the expectation of a quite, scary evening. Sadly, the evening was more quiet than scary. Scary? I found it a bit entertaining but not scary nor disturbing. Viewer, beware.
The Ring puts to shame the vast majority of other attempts at horror. Other movies try to hide the lack of story and characterization by the use of gore, etc. The Ring will just suck you in! (What do I mean by that? See it and you will believe!)
this was such a good movie!
