SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Penny dreadful -

Hideo Nakata, 1998

Not the first but def­i­nitely the best of the J- hor­ror move­ment, Ringu – later re­made for the west as The Ring – fea­tures a terrifying vi­sion trans­mit­ted via a haunted video tape which fright­ens view­ers to death seven days after watch­ing a creepy movie. As clever and disturbing as it is in­flu­en­tial: for more see Ju- On, Kairo, Sui­cide Cir­cle, One Missed Call and Dark Wa­ter.
