Default The Ring Virus

It's the Korean version of The Ring. Anyone seen it and think it was better than Ringu?

I own RV and am thinking of blind buying Ringu because I liked the story so much.

It's not very good...It incorporates ideas from both the film and the novel but it's a rather dull attempt at creating atmosphere...The TV climax is over in about 30 seconds which is funny considering how long the movie takes with just about everything else...If you liked this then you should love Ringu...

I haven't seen Ringu yet, but having seen Ring Virus I can't see that being hard. I'd prefer if they made a Ring video game just so we could get Uwe Boll's The Ring.

I was just trying to say I like Uwe Boll movies better than Ring Virus, but I do want to check out F.E.A.R.

Actually there is a Ring video game...It came out for Dreamcast and was received much the same way as a Uwe Boll movie...Only a lot less fun...

I love all the Ring movies except for The Ring 2 USA, which is very disappointing to me because it was directed by Hideo Nakata the original director of the japanese film 1 and 2, and Dark Water's original film.

Ring 0 is by far and away my favorite of the entire series though.
