    Default The Ring - on Netflix - 20 years later

    I saw The Ring on DVD around 2003 when I was stationed in Germany. I don't watch any horror movies with my wife, she's a romcom type or a Bourne Identity type. But we watched this one and she liked it.

    I liked it.

    A lot.

    Back then anyways.

    It was kind of the standard--this is what horror should be.

    It's on netflix now. So I'm watching it. Is it all that? Or will my inner Mastershake give it a modest 7/10 since she's out of bed and her makeup sucks and I'm sober, slightly hung over?

    Hm.

    I'm in the middle of the rewatch now, so I need to return.

    Spoilers, bro. I ainít tagging after 20 years. Thatís on you.

    I hated the first 1:45. Not in the way you truly hate something, but more in the way that you feel a certain level of disappointment in something thatís been billed to you. It was billed as one of the scariest movies ever, and through 1:45 I was mostly scoffing at it, much as I scoffed at the Blair Witch Project for the lack of fear level and mostly the annoyance it created.

    That last 10 minutes were spine-tingling, literally. I felt pins and needles creeping up my back and I was frozen. When that thing came out of the well and out of the TV, it made the whole movie worth it. I watched it on video at home, rented, not in the theater. I wasnít aware that it was on Netflix. Iím really interested in watching it again and better assessing it as a film while knowing whatís coming this time. It led to a lot of attempts at video- or internet-themed horror movies, most of which failed.

    On the rewatch it will never have the same chilling effect. Best getting the opinion of someone who's never seen it.

    I’ve never seen it and I was going to give my first time assessment, but MO just spoiled it for me so now everything is ******.

    Missy and i enjoyed it and i do own it on DVD. Its one of the few remakes that i actually enjoy over the original (same with the first remake of The Grudge). The closet scene is the best for me.
