    I've seen the Japanese Ring, and I thought it was an amazing piece of film. However, I havent seen the American version - which I'm glad about. I have a friend who said that she wished she hadnt seen the American one first, because it ruined the originaln when she got round to watching it. The original is more psychological, and a lot had to be cut out of the remake because some of it which was relevant to Japanese society just couldnt be applied to US culture/lifestyle.

    Ive seen both and the Japanese version is crap, someone had told me it was around twice as scary, but it wasnt.

    I do however, love The Ring with Naomi Watts and Martin Henderson.

    Just read the book; better than the tat I saw in the cinema. Might now dig out the Japanese video.

    But why's it called Ringu when there're no rings in the book?

    Ringu is scarier.
    I saw the whole series of Ringu,
    still think the 1st 1 is the best.

    i guess it's because the word ring in Japanese also means a bell.
