The Ring

Directed by Hideo Nakata

The highest-grossing horror film in Japanese history, THE RING is rapidly gaining cult status in the UK ­ for its low-tech, high-terror aesthetic. A chillingly effective mix of ghost story and modern technology, the story is deceptively simple. In modern day Tokyo, the latest urban myth describes a video that brings death to its viewers within a week. A female investigative reporter sets off to debunk the myth, only to discover a strange video… “…Will scare the living hell out of you.” Mark Kermode
