Undeclared Horror Masterpiece

The Ring usually gets a bad rep for being "too slow" and some people even say that "nothing happens" in the movie. Unless you have ADD or something, you have to at least appreciate what Gore Verbinski achieved in 2002. What he did was he basically took the premise of Ringu, a good suspenseful Japanese horror flick and made it more suspenseful and filled with creepy visuals.

I am a huge horror fan, and this is one of the movies that unsettles me the most. The suspenseful pace, the incredible, beautiful but haunting visuals make this a unique experience. I love gory films, but this one relies a lot more on psychological horror and imagery to create scares. No jump scares, just good story telling.

The movie may not answer all the questions it creates, but the viewer, if he pays attention accordingly, will be able to figure them out for himself.

Unsettling to the bone, The Ring is one of my favorite horror films of all time. Truly underrated.

Too many unanswered questions!

If u wanna just watch a movie to get your adrenaline pumping, then it's okay if u watch this. Because other than a little thrill, there's nothing in this movie. Good thing about this, is that it has some scary scenes which will give you goosebumps. A big thumbs up for the makeup artist. Costumes were mediocre. Writing is shit(maybe it's better in the original version), and directing is okay. Acting is also okay, although I expecte more from Naomi Watts. Throughout the movie I had so many questions! I kept thinking "why?". You will know what I'm talking about if you've watched the movie. Well, it was 2002 when it was released, and it's 2018 now, so there will be a lot of difference between the horror movies made now and at that time. So taking all this in consideration, I rated it 6/10.

The conclusion would be; watch it. That's the better thing to do. Or if you have already watched it, then I don't think you'd be regretting it.

Difficult to rate but overall a good horror movie

Difficult to rate but overall a good horror movie. The Japanese original is far creepier though.

The classical score works well with the relaxed editing and static shots. Good photography. Characters only exist as plot vehicles,but allright it's horror. Too bad about cranking the color filters up to 11, if you love the color green you're good to go. Everything is a bit plodding but not annoyingly so, proper for the classic feel of the movie. So nothing really outstanding just competent.

Then there is the acting. The lead actress and her co-star go through the movie completely blank but for the 'required moments', lacking any empathy whatsoever and being stupid and rude in general. So much so I wanted them to die early on in the movie. The kid on the other hand gave a very convincing performance, you really can imagine him turning out the way he did because his parents are total d1cks.

6 stars because I am mild and had a few tokes.
