Ring is a 1998 Japanese mystery thriller film directed by Hideo Nakata, adapted from the novel Ring by Kôji Suzuki, which in turn draws on the Japanese folk tale Banchō Sarayashiki. The film stars Nanako Matsushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Rikiya Ōtaka . The film follows TV-reporter and single mother Reiko who is caught up in a series of deaths surrounding a cursed video tape. Production took approximately 9 months. Ring and its sequel Rasen were released in Japan at the same time. After release, Ring inspired numerous films within the "Ring-universe" and triggered a trend of Western remakes. ... more on Wikipedia
