RINGS Trailer: New, Flat Screen Version

How do you update a movie that revolves around something that most people don't even have anymore?

Writers in Hollywood have been slaving on this challenge for years and here's what they've come up with for Rings, directed by F. Javier GutiƩrrez (Before the Fall):

A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. 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...

The trailer brings out a lot of familiar horror stuff and even goes to the air for more...stuff we've seen before. It remains to be seen if it can bring anything new and/or satisfying to the formula that actually worked pretty good in the first American adaptation years ago. The new movie stars Vincent D'Onofrio and some younger people. It's due in theaters on October 28.

Watch the trailer below.

No thank you. Hard pass.

Didn't see a movie within a movie anywhere. That's the only thing I'm kind of interested in. Otherwise this looks like a reboot disguised as a sequel.

If this was recut with funny music to look like a parody done by the Wayans brothers I wouldn't blink an eye.

Did Blumhouse get the rights to this?

I guess the precisely constructed eeriness of Verbinski's film has gone out the window in favour of AVID farts and jump scares.

Oh well, that gave away the whole film

The American version was crap. This looks like another whole level of crap. The Blumhouse version

Horror films these days are a complete wasteland. Same old, same old....over and over and over again.
