Samara returns to (limited) theaters this Thursday in Rings, the third film in the franchise that began with the 2002 The Ring remake.
With modern technology, it appears that Samara’s curse can easily go viral; in fact, many of the films trailers and TV spots elude to the fact that there’s a YouTube element. Paramount Pictures supplied us with the opening scene from the movie, which has two big reveals: There’s apparently a cult of people who share Samara’s video; they call themselves “the Sevens”. Also, apparently Samara can now reveal herself to a full flight of passengers. The clip opens with a kid bragging about watching the cursed video to the girl sitting next to him, then revealing that it’s been seven days since. Samara then arrives, turning all televisions to her video, and eventually shows herself as she climbs out of the pilot’s monitors. Frankly, it’s pretty ridiculous and so off-note that it’s not at all scary.
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…
Samara is a vengeful spirit (played by Bonnie Morgan) who comes after anyone that watches the franchise’s cursed video, which is now going viral.
F. Javier Gutierrez directs Rings, the third film in The Ring franchise, which began with the 2002 J-horror remake that was directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). A sequel was released in 2005.
