Product Description

South Korean version of the popular Japanese horror film 'Ringu'. A popular urban legend tells of a cursed videotape that, should anyone be brave enough to watch it, will condemn the viewer to death within seven days. When a group of local teenagers all die in mysterious circumstances, an investigative journalist acquires a copy of the tape and watches it for herself. The next morning, convinced she has been cursed, she sets out to discover who made the tape, and why.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ring Virus 8 Oct 2011
By Faustus
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of 3 filmed versions of Kji Suzuki's successful novel. This one is from South Korea.
It more closely follows the plot of the novel, it even reinstates some of the more interesting elements that were absent in the Japanese version, however, the protagonist is again changed to a female.
It's not as good as Ring (1998) [DVD] [2000](1998). Don't be expecting the scares of Ringu, either; it's more of a drama than a horror. Think of it as a companion piece and you may enjoy it more.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Ring Virus 16 Mar 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This sticks more closely to the book than the American version, but doesn't have the charm or horror aspect of the American version. It's good if you want to add it to a collection, but not for general viewing.; It gets very slow in points, and isn't actually scary. That's why it's so cheap.

By polly40
Format:DVD
Hi all this was a surprisingly good film i thought it may be below par against its Japanese version but no its story was of course similar but had differences that was typically Korean and had some very tense moments it was well acted and for the price i paid was well worth it as for the seller they packaged it well and was very prompt in delivery many thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching if you like good World cinema 28 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
I agree with most of the above comments. I would like to add that what it may lack in the tension and suspense of Ring (was it that scary?) it makes up for in depth. What it pulls off well from the novel I thought was the portrayal of the time span. You get a real feeling of those seven days running out, thanks to the editing and a great leading actress (can't remember her name). Yes, it's a lower key version but stands up well on it's own. I felt as a remake this wasn't a waste of time.
If you like these movies I'd recommend the novel, and 'Spiral' is worth a watch.
