This was one of my most anticipated horror films at the top of this year, but I worried that it would either never be released or be really, really terrible. Well, as it turns out, I had nothing to fear. The RINGS trailer is actually here, and it actually looks really good.
Yes, it's a sequel. And not just a sequel but a sequel of an American remake of the horrifying Japanese horror, Ringu. So, we're likely pretty far removed at this point. And yet, the characters are still watching a video (upgraded from an old school VHS tape to a freaky-looking YouTube clip for modern times) that is known to kill you. Ah, horror movies.
A new chapter in the beloved RING horror franchise. A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before…
Franchise villain Samara apparently has more unfinished business to resolve. This won't end well. Watch the creepy new trailer:
RINGS is in theaters October 28. I'm hyped.
