    If you don't mind, I'm off to the corner of my office to curl into a fetal position and rock slowly.

    Ringu has a minimalist intensity that can stop the heart with a simple flash-cut or a well-timed fillip in the musical score.

    Rolling Stone

    As good as The Ring is, it can't top the original for sheer, shivering terror.

    Time Out

    The finale, too, still feels as twisted, bizarre and down-right nightmarish as it did all those years ago.

    October 07, 2008

    Classically shot, with effective use of stereo sound effects, the movie is almost entirely free of visual horror and the usual Eastern ghost cliches, managing to suspend auds' disbelief in the hokey story through pure atmosphere.

    Village Voice

    Eschewing blood for a sinuous tone of Videodromic dread, Ring forces fear into every cut as a psychic telejournalist counts down the hours till a fatal visitation, while making a gung ho attempt to save her brood.

    Ring put the willies up me, big time.

    Total Film
    October 10, 2012

    A sure, stealthy shocker which certainly primes you for the sequel.

    Sight and Sound

    Director Hideo Nakata manages to strike a genuinely alarming balance between the cultural depths of Japanese folklore and the surface sheen of latter-day teen culture.

    Cinema Crazed
    May 26, 2011

    While the story is engrossing, and the acting top-notch, Hideo Nakata's direction is the primary reason to watch.

    London Evening Standard
    October 31, 2008

    David Cronenberg could perhaps compete with Nakata but unfortunately only lesser mortals have attempted to replicate the feeling that Reiko has plunged into something with which even her psychic powers can't compete.

    October 31, 2008

    Ring has indescribably disturbing moments that frightened me out of my wits. But like many of the Japanese horrors that followed, it sometimes has an elliptic and confusing storytelling style that can make plot-progression muddy.
