    Default The Ring remake - its meant to be damn good

    now i am not sure about this....

    i am a BIG fan of the original, and i dont think i personally will be swayed by the US remake BUT, that said, it is meant to be pretty damn good.

    here is the story.

    Before You Die, You See The Ring
    DreamWorks' remake has a mind to be the year's best thriller.

    September 06, 2002 - Production on DreamWorks SKG's The Ring has been low-key so far, but anticipation and excitement among the online community is building as the film's promoters boast terrific traffic to their website, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] The trailer has just been posted online at that address, and it heralds what just might be Hollywood's most chilling and unorthodox thriller of 2002.

    Mind you, The Ring is not an original production. It's Hollywood's version of a highly popular 1998 Japanese horror film, Ringu, which was itself based on a novel by Koji Suzuki. The Japanese flick may be hard to top for serious horror/suspense buffs, but if this movie's atmospherically engaging trailer is any indication, The Ring could be the success that the plot hole-ridden FearDotCom tried to become and failed.

    The basic premise of The Ring centers around a mysterious videotape that ought to bear some kind of warning label, for everyone who watches it dies within seven days. English actress Naomi Watts plays Rachel Keller, the film's protagonist, who presumably views the malevolent tape and has a week to get to the bottom of the mystery lest her own life be forfeited. Gore Verbinski (The Mexican, Mouse Hunt) directs.

    With its low-profile marketing and its cast list bereft of $10 million names, The Ring could become a word-of-mouth success in the vein of The Blair Witch Project. If it fails, people will probably forget it was ever made. It is currently slated for an October 18th release, just in time for Halloween

    i saw Ring earlier this year and I have to say with out doubt it was one of the most scary films I have ever seen. I just hope that if they make a big budget version of it that they do it justice.
