The Ring (2002)
The biggest difference between the two movies is that the American remake has a back story which fills in all the gaps where the original leaves more to the viewer’s imagination and consequently is more dark and disturbing therefore more likely to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. But don’t get me wrong Verbinski’s The Ring (2002) is not a bad film and I am sure that if you have little or no knowledge of the Nakata’s film you would enjoy the English language version. Of course it also has Naomi Watts in the lead role, which is never a bad thing! The Americans I understand are producing The Ring 3D with a release date of late 2011 or early 2012, now there’s something to look forward to?
