The Story Is A Ringer, but the scares don't really linger

Seven days! A simple phrase that struck terror in our hearts oh so many years ago. Certainly, you know I'm talking of The Ring, the horror movie about a death delivering video tape certain to scare you to death. Samara's tale has fallen on to the backburner for some time, but like the cursed video, the series has resurfaced to the modern world to once more have you cowering at your screens. Will Rings live up to the potential? Robbie K here, once more sharing his opinions on yet another film. Let's get started. ..

A Joke Twelve Years in the Making

Twelve years have passed since we last caught a glimpse of the waterlogged Samara clambering out of the well; twelve years. I want you to remember that because evidently the makers of Rings, the newest installment in the series forgot. They forgot that the origin of their vengeful specter has already been told and the supposed rules of Samara's curse need maybe a refresher at most. Yet given the fact this film simultaneously ups stakes and downplays expectations I have to ask, what are we supposed to be looking at: a reboot? A sequel? A spin off? I can't honestly tell you what we're supposed to be watching, but what it looks like is a really s***ty horror movie – one that plum forgot to bring the scary. Jump scares abound in this movie and if that's all it takes to jolt you out of your seat then watch out for the loud claps of car doors closing and umbrellas bursting open. Otherwise the second scariest thing about this movie is it makes an entire rural Georgia town look like the McPoyles from It's Always Sunny (2005-Present). ..

Ten Years Too Late

The movie was better than it had any right to be, but it didn't try to do anything new. I actually enjoyed the mystery aspect of the film, but it kind of failed as a scary movie, as it wasn't scary at all and was filled with cheap fake jump scares. The acting from the two main people isn't bad, but you can tell they got the parts just because they were pretty. This movie seems much more of a sequel to the original movie The Ring, forgetting most of the nonsense from The Ring 2. Rings also seems to take more inspiration from the original Japanese films, where a lot more is learned about Samara's birth parents. From the trailers, I thought that this movie might have a lot more stuff with social media, but other than a few things, this movie could have taken place a decade ago. The only thing to show that the film's in the present is that they copy & paste video files, and they use smart phones as flashlights. Overall, the film isn't horrible, but it also isn't very good, I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

"Rings" is both enjoyable and frustrating.

You may be aware that the release of 2017's "Rings" (PG-13, 1:57) came a dozen years after the previous American sequel in the "Ring" franchise, or even that the very first "Ring" film was Japanese, but most people aren't aware of how the story began and how far-reaching it has become. The story of people dying seven days after watching the strange images on a mysterious videotape was first told in a trilogy of books by Japanese author Koji Suzuki in the 1990s. The first novel in "The Ring Trilogy" was simply titled "Rings" and was published in 1991. In Japan, it inspired two manga adaptations, a 1995 film ("Ring: Kanzenban"), a TV series ("Ring: The Final Chapter"), another movie version (1998's "Ring", also known as "Ringu") and a sequel (1999's "Ringu 2"), followed by two remakes of the 1998 film, one from South Korea ("The Ring Virus" in 1999) and the other from the U.S. ("The Ring" in 2002). The American version made over five times what it cost so, naturally, there was a sequel. The profits for "The Ring Two" (released in 2005) "only" tripled its budget and was also rated much lower than the previous film by both critics and audiences. The success of "The Ring" led to the American remakes of other Japanese horror films such as "The Grudge" (and its sequel), "Dark Water" and "Pulse", but the diminishing "Ring" returns and reviews probably contributed to the 12 year gap between "The Ring Two" and "Rings". ..

A disgrace to the Ring's history

Not much to say, after watching the "Rings". If you have seen the first two movies, then you should just skip this one. It's a disgrace for the series. Repiod. Awful story, terrible acting, not even a single scary scene. Even when Samara appears, you are not scared, but sad... Not because of her story, but because of the series falloff... Personally, I loved the first movie and enjoyed the second, even though I found it mediocre. This one, however, is one of the least interesting movies I have seen in my whole life. Shame, shame, shame...

Rings for a new Generation

First of all don't listen to the critics. As a fan of the first two I was looking forward to this movie ever since it was announced. The delays and the re-shoots had me worried but the final outcome of this movie left me satisfied other than the unnecessary opening sequence. I wouldn't call this a horror movie but instead a mystery thriller. Samara lacked screen time but the movie delivered a good mystery that often left me guessing until the end. Some would argue that it was a tad bit predictable but even then the movie was still better than some recent horror movies that came out the last few years. The entire premise of this movie was interesting once we were introduced to the 7th floor things got really interesting without spoiling it for anyone. As I mentioned before it felt to me that Samara wasn't seen enough in this movie taking away some of the horror elements. The movie often relied too much on jump scares and failed to create the same eerie atmosphere as the first. So in the end I highly recommend this movie. It's a good popcorn flick to check out on the weekend. Leave your expectations at the door and try not to read into it too much prior to seeing it because the trailers gave away a lot of the good scenes. In the end, you won't be disappointed.

Scare is gone, but the story is good!

Interesting Tale, But not a purely scary flick

Alright, diving right into this. I am a fan of the first two movies, and I have waited for years for this sequel. I knew it wouldn't live up to the original or the first sequel, especially without Naomi Watts in it, so I wasn't expecting that. I advise you to do the same. I'll start with the negative and end with the positive: ..

They Killed The Ring Franchise With This

This is the tale we all know from the first two films. Watch a tape and you die in 7 days. That's where this starts out and we follow along with the characters as the story unfolds. Except for the little twist in the plot. The tape changes with the lead character having seen it she receives a mark on her hand on the first day instead of the 5th. The new tape is played and no one watches but the main heroine. This story is a little different with churches, burning bodies, etc. So she and her boyfriend are off to find out why the story is different, searching to set Zamora free. The eventually find out who is Zamora's real mother and father and are able to set her to rest by burning her bones. Only problem, the heroine has been marked and for a reason. As she pulls the fish line out of her mouth, her boyfriend begins to decode the markings. At the same time, she realizes her mark has turned to loose skin that comes off and she has Zamora like skin underneath. Meanwhile, the video of the new film that was digitized and put on computer begins copying itself and sending to all email addresses that are stored in the email program. As her boyfriend tries to stop it, he realizes that the marking spells something ominous, it spells rebirth, and his girlfriend has become Zamora for a new generation.
