A marvelous movie. Promised.

There’s an American remake: The Ring (2002).

The Ring. Plot

After the death of her cousin Tomoko, reporter Reiko hears stories of a videotape that kills everyone who sees it exactly one week after viewing. At first she discounts the rumors, but when she learns that Tomoko’s friend (who watched the video with her) died at exactly the same time, she begins to investigate. After viewing the tape herself, strange things start happening, and so she teams up with her ex-husband to try to stop the death clock that has once again begun ticking. (Filmaffinity)

Reviews

“The original and best: a genuinely scary movie (…) ‘Ring’ has indescribably disturbing moments that frightened me out of my wits (…) Rating: ???? (out of 5)” Peter Bradshaw: The Guardian

“It’s not so much the gore that interests Nakata as the reporter (Nanako Matsushima) digs into the case, it’s the subtle dread that keeps you up at night in a cold, clammy sweat (…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Peter Travers: Rolling Stone

Our Opinion

A Fantastic movie. Terrific. One of the best horror movies in the last decades.
