Japanese fright maestro Hideo Nakata ( Ringu) must be counting the cash as his efforts get the Hollywood treatment – The Ring was a hit and The Ring 2 made plenty. Overshadowed by its bigger cousins, this ghost tale certainly has its moments. Mother Yoshimi ( Hitomi Kuroki, pictured) gets more than she bargained for when she and her young daughter ( Rio Kanno) move into a new apartment. A cosy abode at first, the wetness which settles in is more than your average case of rising damp. Using Nakata’s “don’t look behind you” techniques and emphasising the implied, this is sure to get you sinking in your chair.
