    Any opinions on this? I know its a Korean remake of the Ring, but I was wondering how it holds out overall.

    i haven't seen it but have heard its a very good remake.. some people even prefer it over Nakata's original which is a mighty big call if you ask me...

    I haven't seen Ring Virus, but I intend to. To be honest, the original rubbed me the wrong way. I love the more supernatural and cryptic elements, but it wasn't entirely successful. The ending was better than the US in my opinion, but overall I prefer the US remake. Now I want to see Ring Virus and see how it holds up.

    Well, I have seen it and it's pretty good. I didn't like it as much as Nakatas film but it's a respectable effort.

    I think it's preferable to have seen Nakatas film first since Ring Virus sort of runs through the backstory to concentrate on the horrific aspects.
