Horror Top 10 | #10 The Ring

BYD-the-ringHorror Top 10 | #10 The Ring (2002) – “Before you die, you see the ring.”

A moody and extremely eerie remake of the Japanese film Ringu which explores the concept of an urban legend of a video tape that causes anyone who watches it to die seven days later.
Naomi Watts plays Seattle based reporter Rachel Keller whose niece Katie unexplainably dies during a sleepover with a friend. As Rachel investigates she is led to the tape that Katie’s friends believe killed her. After watching the series of disturbing images and receiving a spectral phone call warning her of her impending death, Rachel races against time to decipher the origin of the tape and the meaning behind its images.
The film is a unique take on the original and is expertly Americanized. The film has a beautifully eerie look with dark, green tinted cinematography that perfectly captures the gloomy Washington coast setting and adds a sense of foreboding.

Fun Facts about The Ring:

In order to advertise The Ring, the video of the cursed videotape was played on late night cable channels.

About the Author: Dustin Waine Nelson - I'm a creative writer at heart with a journalists edge. I love clothing, jewelry, shoe design and weddings as much as cooking in the kitchen with Martha Stewart. I look for the eclectic and unique in every one and encourage people to show their "pop" look on the outside. You can catch me on the streets of Portland finding the new, the old, and the indie design or designer. I specialize in arts and entertainment reporting as well as human interest and civil rights. I focus on public relations, event planning, as well as portrait and event photography. I work for AM/PM PR Group in Portland, Oregon, and I am the owner and event planner for Waine Weddings.
