Japan for the Uninvited

Japanese culture from a bemused foreign perspective

Ringu (1998)

Ringu, in its time the highest grossing Japanese horror film ever, has spawned two sequels, a television series, a Hollywood remake, and a number of similar movies.

It’s the chilling story of a young journalist investigating a mysterious videotape that seems to be killing everyone who watches it.

The film uses creepy, exaggerated motions from traditional kabuki theatre to increase the frights.
