Product Description

The complete trilogy of Hideo Nakata's dark and chilling tales of a deadly virus that can be caught simply by watching a cursed videotape, which prompted a US remake starring Naomi Watts in 2002. In 'Ring 1' (1998), fear spreads among the students of a local high school when news circulates of a mysterious videotape which brings death to those who watch it. TV reporter Reiko (Nanako Matsushima) sets out to investigate, finds a copy of the tape in a deserted cabin and falls victim to its awful curse. With only one week left to live, her only hope is to uncover the story behind the tape, to find out where it came from and why it wields such terrible powers. In the sequel, 'Ring 2' (1998), journalist Mai Takano (Miki Nakatani) begins her own investigation into the mysterious haunted videotape that kills all those who see it. Along the way she discovers that Youichi, the son of tape victim Ryiji, has begun to develop many of the same supernatural powers that Sadako had when she was still alive. Now Mai must do her best to protect both herself and Youichi from the evil undead Sadako as the tape's curse continues to exert its terrifying power. In 'Ring 0' (2002), the final part of the trilogy and a prequel to the original film, it's the 1950s and Sadako, the evil spirit who wreaks havoc in the later stories, is a young woman and aspiring actress around whom strange things happen. Under suspicion from her peers she eventually takes part in a paranormal demonstration in front of the media. One by one the journalists present start to die as the fiancée of one of the dead tries to unlock the mystery of the tape-recording of Sadako's voice.

Synopsis

This edition collects the original Japanese RING Trilogy:
Exactly one week after staying at a remote cabin, a group of Japanese teenagers all meet sudden inexplicable deaths. A cousin of one of the victims, reporter Reiko Asakawa (Nanako Matsushima), begins an investigation that leads to the discovery of a videotape containing hauntingly bizarre footage. Upon viewing the tape, Reiko receives a phone call stating that she, too, will die in one week. As the clock ticks away, Reiko enlists the help of her estranged husband, Ryuji (Hiroyuki Sanada), who possesses limited psychic abilities. Together they attempt to discover the meaning behind the cryptic film and break the supernatural curse.
Hideo Nakata's RING, based on a novel by Koji Suzuki, was such a hit in Japan that it spawned both a sequel and prequel, along with a huge cult following. Like a horrific version of an X-FILES episode, the dark, moody film makes the most out of the mysterious and the unknown. As any viewer will admit, the surreal, death-inducing video presented within the movie is extremely effective. And as RING's tension builds, so does its sense of mounting doom. One of the creepiest motion pictures ever made, RING culminates in an unbelievably chilling finale. Do not watch this film alone...and make sure the phone ringer is off.

5.0 out of 5 stars DONT'T WATCH THIS AT NIGHT! 3 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
I watched Gore Verbinski's Ring prior to watching the jap versions, but I have to say that japanese horror is far more horrifying than the western one. They don't worry about our sanity, they just want to scare the hell out of you. Ring 1 is absolutely great, fear in its most pure form, Ring 2 is probably the weakest of the trilogy, yet quite good, and Ring 0, wich explanis how the evil Sadako was born, is pure panic. Forget Jason, Freddy, Myers or Leatherface; Sadako has got to be the most horrifying character that ever appeared on a TV screen. Those eyes are the vision of Satan itself. Hideo Nakata, who is also directing the american version of Ring 2, is an absolute genius. If you like these masterpieces, then watch Dark Water. J-HORROR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! 16 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
I guess I've been waiting for this set ever since I was introduced to the Ringu phenomenon at the Edinburgh Film Festival back in 2000. Didn't bother buying the earlier UK Region 2 DVDs, which were universally panned on technical grounds, and hoped something like this would come along eventually to curb the enthusiasm surrounding the overambitious American remake. Now, after seeing the 'canonical' Ringu movies en masse, I guess it is possible for anyone to see why Hideo Nakata is directing the American remake!
The movies are uniformly excellent -- up to and including Sleeping Bride, which is a kind of a tangent here, really -- and a great lesson in the 'less is more' school of creeping the bejesus out of anyone. My favorite scenes are scattered throughout the tryptich -- not trilogy, as Kim Newman smartly points out in his liner notes -- so it's totally convenient to have them packaged in one box. And what a box it is! Tartan should win some awards for the packaging alone -- this is by far the best usage of a lenticular image I've seen on a DVD yet. Also, having the whole thing encased in a clear plastic sleeve makes it look both classy and durable on the shelf.
Audio presentation is immaculate across the board -- your choice of DD 5.1, DTS, or Dolby Surround (not just stereo!) -- with no dubs in sight. Visually, Ringu 2 and Bride fare better than the other two, but just barely -- all the movies are very sharp, and the subdued color schemes are rendered even more accurately than on the R1 DreamWorks DVD of the first Ringu (which is also slightly cropped). There is evidence of NTSC/PAL conversion, though, but it could prove bothersome only to those with certain types of DVD-ROM drives. On a widescreen TV this goes by pretty much unnoticed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best 15 Mar 2006
By Jackiesmackie TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Forget any remake nonsense there is floating about - join the world cinema revolution and get your hands on these DVDS.
This was the set that gave me my new love for world horror - I have never in my life been as afraid as I was when Sedako came crawling crab style out of the telly, from her blackened stumps of nails to the rolling eye that could stop a bus at 2o feet she is terror personified.
Tastefully done and artfully crafted these are tales ultimately of woe and horror that beget all who come across the 'cursed video', in true asian style you will see lots of dark hair and half seen shadows in what became I think the gateway for many more world horror films to come through - welcome Sedako into your house - but beware, you have 7 days left to live!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ring Ring Ring 29 April 2005
Format:DVD
This is where it all started. If ever a film was responsible for a resurgence in a genre then Ringu is that film. What it and it's sequels did for horror around the world and the asian film industry is unparralelled. From Ringu came numerous asian horrors of similar ilk like The Grudge, Dark Water, The Eye and Phone to name a few, almost every one of those horrors has been or is being re-made by american studios. While many feel this is an unwelcome trend in hollywood I am grateful for it. While America makes sub standard remakes more people will seek out the superior originals and that can only benefit the asian film indusrty and in turn, us the fans.
Ringu is a superb film, original, superbly acted and terrifying. It is a great story, simple enough to follow but with a depth and intrigue rarely seen in western horror. Ring 2 enhances the world of the original but as a film falls a little flat. I did not enjoy it to the same degree and while the ending is suitably unsettling it failed to deliver for me. That said Ring 0, the prequel is excellent. Having seen the others the story is easy to follow, telling the story of what has gone before, some truly frightening moments and more great acting put this on par with the original.
This trilogy package is great, I'd urge you to buy it and own a part of cinema history although a major lack of extras is disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Electrifying, great work from Hideo Nakata 26 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
This trilogy box set is definately the best horror film i have ever witnessed in my life. It isnt one of them lets go kill everyone and make loads of blood hooror movies. It has a story behind it which keeps you on the edge of your seat and it adds in a few spine tingling moments to round the film of. Overall this is a must see film if you like this sort of horror. And make sure you purchase the trilogy box set as it has some good extra's. Hope this has helped you.
