User Review

A Big Scare

Rating:

I must say that I consider myself to be a lover of horror, but much too
often, sex and gore is subsituted for real horror and you don't get that
feeling of genuine fear in the pit of your stomach. Not so with "The
Ring".
Never have I seen a film that has affected me so. The images seem to tug
at your subconscious, at the dark things we keep inside. I haven't been
able to close my eyes without replaying bits of the film behind my
eyelids.
I have slept with the light on since I've seen it, and we can't stop
talking
about it. Hands down, it was the best, the scariest, the creepiest, and
the
most intense horror film ever. The audience in the theater all gripped
their armrests, breathed heavily and felt everything the characters were
experiencing. It was excellent! But beware…. don't expect to leave
"The
Ring" in the movie theater, it will certainly be with you for a long
time.
