The Ring

Horror, Mystery 1h 55m 2002

Aroview: Fitfully creepy American remake of the influential Japanese horror film that surprisingly manages to replicate the foreboding (and uniquely Japanese) ambience that made the original so indelible.

As the journalist investigating and cursed by THAT videotape, Naomi Watts follows the plot map of the original with the odd deviation intended to exploit the chill factor (an added sequence of a disturbed horse is a standout). Purists might find it hard to fall under the spell of a “copy”, but otherwise it’s certain to prickle the spines of those weaned on the smug, ironic horror of the post-“Scream” era.
