I finally saw the original Japanese version of The Ring, and it was amazing. I wish I’d made more of an effort to check it out when it was released. I would have been banging the drum for this movie for the past three plus years. On a “creepy scale” of 1-10, this movie rates a 906. The least scary two minutes of this film are scarier than 95% of all the horror movies ever made and the two scariest minutes are the sort of stuff that makes you sleep with the lights on (just in case.) My highest recommendation.
