    Just wanted to let you guys know the Ring came out today. I came home and popped it in my 20 inch cinema display and it still scares the living s*** out of me even i daylight. i can't wait to get the video from the dvd onto a tap and play it at my girlfriend's house. talk about a funny prank.

    this was probably the scariest movie i have ever seen. i couldnt sit in the house with the tv not on for a while, i was afraid it would just randomly turn on. ahhhhhhhh super scary.

    i felt bad, i saw a midnight showing of it, and the girl we went with had to go home by herself afterwards - that would be more than scary.

    i am such a girl. jeesh.

    Damn, I want to see this movie more than ever now. I've never EVER been scared by a horror movie and if this thing can do the trick, I'll buy 50 copies and scare the crap out of my friends by mailing the copies to them anonymously :)

    haha boy do i feel dumb. anyways i talked to very few people who thought it was bad. i think scream was the last movie that was pretty cool that was a horror. signs was kind of freaky with the aliens and stuff. thought i woudl post a pic for you guys.

    signs wasnt too scary. But if I heard that song they play during
    every single scary part, I might get a little freaked out ;).

    did anyone else feel cheapened by this dvd with the lack of extra stuff. and what was up with that extra footage, was that suppose to be deleted scenes, wasnt really sure on that one.

    yeah, it is definitely made for the mass population...very americanized. pretty cheesy, and some parts are just dumb. but still, very scary. there are parts that just make you jump. really. i saw most of it with my eyes closed.

    okay, ijon, that pic is WAY too scary. in fact, i can't scroll down anymore in this thread without covering it up, it just reminds me of some of the scarier parts of the movie.

    It was cheesy, everybody raved about it and when I saw it I wasn't impressed, I mean, it had a few parts that made me jump a bit, but not as much as I was expecting.

    Kept me awake for awhile though.

    i thought it was just ok...had some scarey parts but really lamed out towards the end.

    i hate it when a movie starts out so well....then you can tell they ran out of ideas, time, budget...whatever.

    Ringu

    if you all check out Ringu... that isht is the bomb. Love that movie. Just as good as the Ring. I strongly recommend finding a copy of "Dark Water" -- also a Japanese Psychological Horror flick. Great. Leaves quite an impression. I have on VCD.

    The don't watch this portion of the movie was very disturbing and interestingly put together. Instead of the normal progression they grouped it almost like it was a dream with stream of consciousness.

    anyone else thing that the cover for the movie sucked?
    it would have been better with just a picture of the well and not the girl screeming
    or the movie poster with the ring and the words, simplicity is the way to go in some of these things.

    it is as well made as CTHD.

    thats cool, i didnt like it though, not because of the sub titles but just the movie itself. it was too unrealistic for my enjoyment. flying over walls and walking on water and on bamboo. it was cool for 30 minutes then i just stopped watching it. just not my type of movie.

    Yeah, same here. I had to order the original three from Japan. Oh well. At least I don't have to change the regions for it.

    Here's another scary pic for you guys:
