Julia becomes worried about her boyfriend, Holt, when he explores the dark urban legend of a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after viewing. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a "movie within the movie" that no one has ever seen before.
Drama Horror - Like the two previous films in the series, this is a supernatural
horror film, and while not a reboot, it does not feature the star of
the original films, Naomi Watts, nor any of the other actors in them.
Newcomers play the leads while more familiar faces such as Vincent
D'Onofrio and Johnny Galecki having supporting roles. Some language,
sensuality, disturbing images, and an altogether creepy vibe make the
film too intense for kids.
PROFANITY: 1 S-word; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sensuality without nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights and hits between men and women with some blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol and marijuana. ACTION: Some foot chases. COMEDY: None.
Slant MagazineFull Review Poor Often, Rings doesn't even seem to be trying to scare us, apart from a few feebly obligatory fake-outs. Rings is unsure as to whether it's a sequel to the other entries in the series or a contemporary reboot.
