“A most artfully creepy piece of work.”

We couldn’t do a horror fest without this iconic piece of Japanese horror.  Prepare to be engulfed by the chilling embrace of terror in “Ringu,” a spine-tingling classic that transcends the genre. Directed by Hideo Nakata and based on the novel by Koji Suzuki, “Ringu” beckons viewers into a world where ancient curses and modern technology collide with horrifying consequences.

The story centers on Reiko (Nanako Matsushima), a journalist investigating a series of mysterious deaths linked to a cursed videotape. Legend has it that anyone who watches the tape receives a phone call foretelling their death in seven days. Skeptical yet intrigued, Reiko delves deeper into the origins of the curse, uncovering a dark history shrouded in secrets and supernatural forces beyond comprehension.
