Naomi Watts, Brian Cox. A journalist investigates a mysterious video that caused her niece and many others to die of fright, only to find its deadly grip closing around herself as well. 2002/color/115 min/PG-13.
With its disturbing images and a few good shocks, The Ring is the kind of frightfest you'll watch to set a chilling mood or spook your susceptible friends, but when you try to sort it out, this well-mounted American remake (of the 1998 Japanese hit Ringu, based on Koji Suzuki's popular novel) becomes a batch of incoherent parts. The negligible plot follows a Seattle reporter (Naomi Watts) as she investigates the death of her niece, the victim of a mysterious videotape that, according to urban legend, causes the viewer's death seven days later. (Fear Dot Com borrowed the same idea while avoiding this film's lofty pretensions.) The countdown structure follows the reporter, her son, and her estranged boyfriend into deepening layers of terror--all quite effective until the movie attempts to explain itself. At that you're better off shutting down your brain and letting the creepy visuals take over. --Jeff Shannon

I think she played a role in "The Ring". IDK, I like the Japanese version better.

You had your expectations too high. Sorry about that. I did too. It let me down. The second time I saw it, was away from the theater, in my room at night with lights off...and yes, it scared me. So, give it another shot. By the way, what movies do scare you? Curious.
