It sounded like just another urban legend -- a videotape filled with nightmarish images, leading to a phone call foretelling the viewer's death in exactly seven days. As a newspaper reporter, Rachel Keller (Watts) was naturally skeptical of the story, until four teenagers all met with mysterious deaths exactly one week after watching just such a tape. Allowing her investigative curiousity to get the better of her, Rachel tracks down the video... and watches it. Now she has just seven days to unravel the mystery of "The Ring."

  • 4 stars "The very beginning looked like some pseudo-horror for teenagers but it was really dark and mysterious movie. The tape was psychedelic and disturbing and Samara who never sleeps and creates something out of nothing was even more disturbing. So it´s not only about the horror part. There´s more in this movie."
