Overview

In this psychological horror story from Japan, a legend circulates among teenagers that if one watches a certain video at a certain time of the night, the telephone will ring right afterward, and one week later, you will die. When Masami (Hitomi Sato) tells her friend Imako this story, she scoffs -- but a week later, Imako dies in an auto accident. Imako's aunt, a television journalist named Reiko (Nanako Matsushima), hears that not long before she died, Imako was watching a strange video with her friends -- all of whom have turned up dead. Reiko tracks down a copy of the video, and as she watches its strange, spectral images, the telephone begins to ring....The next morning, Reiko begins a desperate search to solve the mystery of the video, convinced she has only seven days to live; assisting her is Ryuji (Hiroyuki Sanada), a mathematics expert and her former husband. Ringu was a box-office success in its native Japan, and a surprise blockbuster in Hong Kong, where it became the biggest grossing film of the first half of 1999.

This is much better than the american version but this and that one are equally good. In this one its a similar but wiht a different twist and somewhat of the story. Same things happen in both movies like how she drags herself out of the T.V. and her hair shows a her eye which is completely back but with a white dot and in the other one it shows most of her face as she looks pretty mad at what her mother did to her so she's blaming just about everyone for her suffering. Ringu best movie out there and makes you want to watch it over and over to understand the whole story and if you missed anything important. Watch this one first then the american version.

the ring is my fave movie! so when i was at hollywood video and found ringu 4 sale, i had 2 buy it! it wasn't as good as the ring, but it was still creepy.

It wasn't very scary, and I personally think the American version was much better and Ringu is actually more funny than frightening. But the interesting thing about it is, the Japanese think *our* version is hysterical and that *their* version is freakin' scary. *shrug* cultural differances are weird, eh? Watch Ringu for a good laugh.

I found this one to be extremely good, much better than The Ring because it doesn't rely on graphics to make anything scary. But To me you need to understand the Japansese culure to know why they find ours so funny and same thing with us. There are a lot of things in the movie that are only scary if you are part of the culture. The sequals which are hard to get are also extremely good and fit the story line perfectly. Not losing the point like a lot of American movies have the tendancies to do.

If your looking for a scary, don't-blink-because-you'll-miss-something type of movie then Ringu is not the movie for you. BUt if you like a movie with good twists, turns, and a great story line. But if you get this, you should get the other movies in the Ringu series as well. Also, the book is very good. As is the manga ^^
