                                                  I saw it last night, after all the anticipation i thought it was crap. it was a good story but everyone i talked to said that it was so scary, they dont want to watch it again. i thought it was tame, i only jumped once, and that was when my mate jumped out from nowhere. the ending is real poop.

                                                  i have mixed feelings on this movie. the ending was really great. and the whole TV thing makes me look at my tv for signs of people coming out of it. haha. i saw the movie twice, and i am neutral. i really dont care to see it agian. it is one of those that after you have seen it 2 or 3 times, there is nothing else to be scared about, so it gets boring. well, i really hope all you guys that havnt seen it, enjoy it. i did. the first time. haha

                                                  The bit that made me jump a mile was...

"But I saw her Rachel..."

cuts to cupboard opening and that lovely image of the girl inside. ph34r.gif

I agree Castor, I don't think I'll be seeing it again.

                                                  ok, I rented it last night and on a scale of 1 to 10 , I'd give it a 5. It wasn't scary, I didn't jump but it kept my interest throughout.  There were a lot of parallels with the other movie fear.com but anyways, I've said my part! tongue.gif

                                                  I saw "The Ring" last week. I must say that it wasnt what I thought it would be.  What got to me was what that poor little girl must have gone through, especially after being dumped into that cold well, and living in the dark for 7 days before dieing. What a HORRIBLE way to die.                                                  

I will forever believe that anythings possible, no matter how crazy or unexplainable.

                                                  i don't know if i want to see it or not.  i don't like scary stuff.                                                  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

                                                  I think itís more of a psychological horror, with more emphasis on the tension created, rather than the images you actually see. You should go and see it DS and form your own opinions on how scary it is. Supposedly, if two scenes were left out of The Ring, it would have been rated a PG. No guesses for those who have seen the film as to what those scenes were. ph34r.gif

ok, I rented it last night...


Was it the original Japanese movie you saw then racerette? I would like to see this just for the comparison.  It might answer some of the questions the remake left open. sleep.gif
