The Ring

Wednesday, March 5th, 2003

If you want a movie that will twist your mind, The Ring is the one to do it. Everyone I went to see it with (in theaters) was freaked out of their minds. I loved it and wanted to see it again. No one else did so I waited for it to come out on DVD. Well yesterday I picked it up and watched it again. Still just as mind gripping as it was a few months ago. Seriously, it literally grips your cranium and doesn’t let go until long after the ending credits have rolled.

I never much cared for chain mail but after seeing this movie I will never even open a chain letter/email ever again. For those who have seen it just think about for a second. In order to escape death you must make a copy of the tape and then show it to someone else. Then that person must in turn repeat the process. Its the same idea as chain mail. In order to avert some bad luck or other “negative” consequences you are asked to forward the email to X amount of people. The movie has other underlying themes but this one really stuck out to me.

Anyway, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a gore scare and/or if you enjoy a good thinking movie.
