All roads lead back to Ringu, the blockbuster Japanese horror movie that inspired a million nightmares (and ripoffs and remakes) with its phantasmic elegance.
Television journalist Reiko investigates an urban legend about a cursed VHS tape that murders the viewer seven days after they watch it. As the mystery hits closer to home, Reiko joins forces with ex-husband/current-exorcist Takashi to destroy the curse. And (hopefully) survive an encounter with a ghost named Sadako. Directed by Hideo Nakata (Dark Water), Ringu is the highest grossing Japanese horror movie in history that STILL manages to shred our nerves.
