Movie Review: Rings (2017)

If you’ve seen the first of this series, then you would understand and perhaps appreciate the trilogy more. Well, we’re talking about no other than the Rings, our featured film for the day.

Here are some facts. This series was inspired by Koji Suzuki’s novel-turned-movie more than a decade ago. Yep, the original was from Japan — which was real scary good.

You know, imagine a dead girl (in a long sleepwear and her face covered with her long hair) crawling out of your TV screen and trying to kill you?! Whew!

Here’s the third installment..

Hmm.. It’s not that the lead stars are unknown, that certainly has nothing to with the plot of the story which is kinda rehashed. I mean, what else could you probably ‘story-tell’ with a video-ghost killer?

If such a curse (whoever watches the video would die in seven days) won’t end and would just be passed on to the next viewer and so on — then doesn’t it sound like tiring? Evil has to have an end to give people, in this case, viewers some hope. Right?

Still, the film is earning though. With a budget of only $25 million, it has now grossed $67.3 million at the box office. Not bad. Probably many of ’em are even curious ‘first time viewers’, so..

But hopefully, if they still plan to continue the series as the movie suggests, then how about a little more creativity? A rebirth of some kind, yeah, to the next level!
