Film Reviews for March 2017

Tags: film horror ring

The Ring (2002) was the scariest film I ever saw. That's not to say it's the best horror film ever made by any stretch of the imagination, but it's the one that shook me up most. It's the one that gave me nightmares, and the one that made me sleep with the light on and want to cover up mirrors and the television set. That image of Sadako / Samara (I watched the Japanese version straight after because, like any horror junkie, I want to be scared) climbing out of the well still has the power to creep me out.


So, I was really looking forward to Rings this year. It had a few interesting ideas, and some cool imagery - the rain falling upwards, for example - but ultimately it falls flatter than a pancake. The backstory of Samara's conception had the potential to lead to some truly creepy cinematography and story telling, but it ended up feeling more like a 70s road trip horror. None of the storylines felt particularly well developed, and they didn't even make the most of the spider walk depicted on the posters!

My verdict? 2 / 5.



Other films I've seen this month, in the order I watched them:

 Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016). 3 / 5.
Brave (2012). 4 / 5
