| Average re-make of Hideo Nakata's brilliant 'Ringu'.
It seems many of the votes and comments on this page have been confused with Hideo Nakata's Ringu(which is superior in every way).

This is a joint Korean and Japanese re-make of that film, and although it follows the book by Koji Suzuki(a great read) much more closely, it still fails to deliver the spine-tingling chills of 'Ringu'. I would go as far as to say that this film can not even be classed as a horror, as there is nothing horrifying about it.

I will give this film 6 out of 10, it's worth at least one viewing, just don't expect anything remotely scary.
