Does anyone have any info on the Japanese horror movie "the Ring" coming to DVD,
region 1 or 0? This move is genuinely creepy and it deserves a good release. If you haven't seen it i suggest that you do. I own the absolutely horrible VCD copy. AND not to mention a Japanese friend of mine said that the subtitles were way off!

Thanks jimmyx
Do you know what the regional coding is on this? I have been endlessly searching for a good copy. The vcd is just terrible!

but In could be wrong it might be Reg free

Perhaps a more important question is what standard will it be released in - PAL or NTSC? Probably PAL if it's a native UK release.

Okay Dave. but, please explain the difference to me. I have a multi region DVD player and it won't play certain PAL region 2 without it looking shitty, but is there a difference between PAL region 2 and PAL region 0? And if it's region 0 won't it play and ANY player? I'm a bit confused now. thanks.

Yes, PAL Region 0 will play on any player, but there's also the issue of your TV display. US TVs are NTSC, so trying to play a PAL signal on them won't work. Your player either has to convert the signal to NTSC or you have to have an external PAL/NTSC converter box to pass the signal through.

I wrote up a brief article trying to explain all of this - check it out at http://www.horrordvds.com/extras/articles/palntsc/ - it may help you understand.

Also, the only difference between PAL Region 2 and PAL Region 0 is that one is Region 0 while the other is Region 2.
