| This is the direction the "Ring" series could have headed
I must admit I really enjoyed this film, despite the criticism from the other comments. Maybe the fact that I saw Ring 0: Birthday before I saw this film effected the way i viewed this film, knowing Sadako's story gave me a greater understanding of the film.

The ending of the film was a tad weak, obviously setting the scene for another sequel, one we will never see due to this films failure at the box office & the making of Ring 2, which was a completely different story.

The use of music in this film was good, except for the end theme during the credits, it just did not fit with the tone of the film

While this film is not as scary as the original, it does have it's scary moments & will keep the viewer interest all the way through. Worth a look for all fans of the "Ring" series, if only to see where the series could have headed.
