This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

This plays out like a mediocre TV Movie, and while I appreciate the fact that it's an adaptation of the second book in the series it still doesn't alter the fact that it's pretty fucking boring!

I am morbidly fascinated by the Ringu franchise. The original, Japanese one, I add hastily.

It started off creepily enough and got progressively creepier and there was a scream and CAPSLOCK OF OMG WTFBBQ! on Twitter, because, hello, horror wuss, and Sadako climbed out the TV and did things and gah. GAH. And…
