It’s been 15 years since there was a “Ring” film anyone actually liked. The original American remake of The Ring took the horror world by storm and lead to a plethora of Asian horror flicks being remade for audiences who do not like to read subtitles. The Grudge, The Eye, One Missed Call, Dark Water all recieved American makeovers with very mixed results. The Ring though for my money stood out as the best of the bunch. It actually creeped me out on my first viewing. Ring Two (2005) was…well the less said about that film the better right? I actually haven’t even seen it in it’s entirety (but you can bet I watched and laughed at that deer scene). So fast forward to 2016 when Rings was announced, my reaction was essentially “Huh?” While the initial trailer and release delays didn’t do much to get me interested in Rings, I am glad it wasn’t the disaster I was expecting. I also have to say that it isn’t anywhere as great as one would want it to be either from a storytelling perspective. Lets get to it, shall we?
