and here is the BLAH! SO BORING! american version:
I HOPE YOU THINK TWICE AND NEVER SEE THE AMERICAN ONE OR EVER TRY TO. I HAD TO SIT THROUGH THE BORING TRASH OF THE AMERICAN VERSION. GET THE JAPANESE ONE! ANOTHER BETTER THING IS THEY HAVE 3 MORE MOVIES IN THE CYCLE.
HERE IS THE MOVIE FOR SLAE HERE ON AMAZON AND THE OTHER 3:
@Slasher Movie Fan, im glad somebody else thought this movie was stupid other than me! i watched the ring for the first time years ago. everybody i knew kept telling me how scary it was so i decided to get it and watch it. i went and bought it and when the cashier saw what movie i had, she started gushing about how creepy it was! being a horror film buff, i was soooo excited when she proceeded to tell me how her 20 something year old brother couldnt sleep with the lights off for a week! i took the movie home, waited until it got dark and popped it in the dvd player and waited to be scared out of my wits! an hour later, i was still waiting for the scary parts! they never came. this movie DID NOT scare me. at all! it didnt creep me out even a little bit. as a matter of fact, i thought it was pretty freakin lame. theres not many people that DONT think this movie is scary. i know im in the minority but this movie just did not do anything for me and its very refreshing to finally see someone else who thinks the same thing about this movie that i do!
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.
ill definently give it another shot. there have been a few movies that didnt do anything for me inititally that were FAR better the second time around. what movies do scare me? the exorcist is one. ive been watching it since i was a kid though, so some of the scariness is gone, but its still VERY creeepy! another one is a 1991 made for tv movie called "the haunted" (i know what your thinking, but check out the reviews on imdb. this movie WILL creep you out!) their are very few recent horror movies that have an impact on me, i collect 70s and 80s horror movies and those are by far the best imo.
