Director Hideo Nakata is the genius behind such Japanese classics as Dark Water, Chaos, Ringu 1 and 2, which have all been remade here in the US. Now he’s taken the next step and has come to the US and filmed his own remake, The Ring Two, for Dreamworks Pictures, which hits theaters March 18th. Can the sequel match the success of the first remake, which banked in over $100 million domestically? My guess is yes. Back to the purpose of the post, fans of the franchise, Japanese horror and of Hideo might enjoy this interview we just ran with the man who kick started the horror revolution. Watch for a sweet contest for the re-release of the original on DVD in the coming week.
