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 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 curiosity 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.

One of the best and scariest horror movies. Highly recommendable!

A largely faithful remake, this American version of the Japanese classic, creates a great atmosphere throughout, has an excellent cast and is unsettling and creepy when it needs to be. Whilst it does expand slightly on the backstory to the central premise more than the original Ringu (and it could also be argued perhaps a little too much), the question that has to be asked is why bother in the first place as there is little to set this version apart. It's not a bad film at all, but the similarities to the original leave experienced horror aficianados comparing their quality in the one aspect that matters - how scary and creepy they are. In this area, the original still has the edge.
