It's creepy in places but there is not much of a story line
Verified purchase
Contains spoilers.
The film started off interesting, at first I thought there was a real mystery element to it, but ultimately it was pretty flat. There was a lot of emphasis on a weird and disturbing but not really consequential event, the drowning of some horses. That got old fast. The human element was very limited and the psychological experiences not fully explored. The only real twist to the story is the protagonist's inability to stop the vengeful killings. There is no satisfying story line and it's predictable. The tape is a third rate art house project.

Good film

First watched this film when I was 13 and it scared the hell out of me. Still really enjoyed it as an adult all be it less scary. Definitely the best one of the trilogy.

Genuinely terrifying
Verified purchase
One of the best horror films of all time and, in my opinion, scarier than the Japanese version. It's very well crafted with a strong story line and, unusually, a good ending.

Why is this film famous?
Verified purchase
Not in the least bit scary, terrible acting, utterly predictable plot. Painful evening of entertainment. Would rather have had an early night.

Although I don't like horror movies, I have seen this, many years ago, but this purchase was for my daughter who loves horror movies. She enjoyed it.

Really scary movie. I loved it.

The ring was a really scary movie. I really really really liked it. And I covered my eyes the whole way through it. I was that scared. And naomi watts was good in it so was david dorfman. So was amber tamblyn and so was racheal bella. I highly recommend this movie
