The Ring (2002)

The Ring is a remake of a japanese movie called the Ring (1998).There are only a few differences like – of course – the names, and about the family which has to do with the video. The rest is the same. I cannot understand why the film was new filmed.
The Ring is about Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) who is asked to find out why her niece Katie died. She meets friends of her niece, who tell her that Katie watched a video seven days before her death. Who the video watches, gets a call and dies seven years later, supposedly. The mysterious thing is that 3 other friends, who watched the video with Katie, died too. So Rachel tries to find the video. She finds it and watches it. When she gets a call and looked as blurred as Katie and her friends on photos she is convinced that she is going to die in a week. Because of this she tries to find a way to stop it. Her Ex-husband, who also saw the video helps her. When her son Aidan sees the video too, she really wants to find a way to stop it…
To be honest, the movie was not really scary, the only disgusting thing was how the corpses look like. Apart from that the movie is thrilling but in the end I was wondering when the movie is over. (This was maybe only because I was tired;) ) Sometimes I was asking why Rachel does something like on the boat when she stays with the horse, which gets more and more aggressive. Naomi Watts is a good actress and persuasive. Martin Henderson (Rachel’s Ex-husband Noah) is sometimes a bit annoying. But the little girl was always frightening.
All in all the movie is exciting and first I was afraid to watch the movie too. It is a good movie but I do not think that is a good horror movie!
