Last night I went to see Rings, a spin off of The Ring. When I was in about 4th grade I accidentally saw The Ring. This was probability the worst idea for an 8 year old to do, this film horrified me so much as a child. For at least 6 months I slept in my mothers bed, and for about 2 years I was scared some chick was going to crawl through my TV.
Stupid right? After my horrific fascination of The Ring I watched the original Japanese version that terrified me for a few more years. Sometimes kids do stupid things, this is an instance.
The whole point of the blog post is to tell you how awful Rings is. PLEASE DO NOT GO SEE IT!! The original film ruined my childhood, but this spinoff makes ‘The 700 Club’ seem entertaining.
I fell asleep twice. TWICE. My friend had to keep waking me up but I also had to keep waking her up. I could honestly hear snores throughout the entire theater.It also didn’t help that we were in the fancy reclining chairs. They also tried to tie in some weird religious symbolism that was not present in the 1st film. A film about a video that can kill someone 7 days after watching doesn’t work in this technological world either. I honestly can’t wrap my mind around how awful this movie was.
Never see A PG-13 horror film that has a 7% on rotten tomatoes. Rant over.
I should have seen Split instead, DAMNIT.
