Director Hideo Nakata, 1998, 96 min, DCP, color. Starring actors Nanako Matsushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Miki Nakatani.

Ringu Film Synopsis: “Investigating an urban myth of a cursed videotape that kills its watchers within seven days of viewing, journalist Reiko Asakawa (Nanako Matsushima) discovers a series of unnatural teenage deaths tied to a tangible, real-life tape when her niece falls victim to the curse.
While tracking it down, Reiko unwittingly exposes her son to the tape, pitting her in a race against the clock to discover the secrets behind its origin.
A dirgelike procession of contorted corpses, grainy video footage and disturbing imagery, Nakata’s brooding J-horror classic unleashes a barrage of nightmare fuel that feeds off of the technological anxieties of our modern era.”

Fans of the 2002 American remake should go see where horror movie franchise all began! Just in time for the SADAKO DX at the box office. The cursed video tape is now an iconic horror genre staple.
