Well guys – I just watched The Ring for the first time. Tartan release from the UK. GULP - I give this one a 4 out of ten. My wife reckons it’s a seven. Like Battle royale, I really do not see the big deal over this film. Stupid premise, lame middle section, a dumb wrap up where the whole thing is a chain letter – wacky plot about volcanos, the sea and psychics. This just didn’t work for me at all. The cinematography was flat, boring. The music was yuck. There is a scene at the end (those that have seen it will know what it is) that is very good indeed. But I waited an hour and fifteen minutes for that sequence. The rest was barely worth my time. Oh well – freezer and Audition are brilliant. This one is actually one of the worse Asian horror films I’ve watched!
