Ringu (1998) Review

It’s kind of hard to believe that it’s taken us this long to dive into the world of J-Horror. Well, thanks to the amazing selection on Shudder (not sponsored) we’re finally getting to it. 

Ring (or Ringu) is a 1998 horror movie that follows a reporter as she explores the mystery behind a cursed videotape. Allegedly, anyone who watches the tape is doomed to die in exactly seven days (what, like seven business days? But Monday’s a holiday?) 

We also talk about Sam’s new kitten, Trixie, who is just a delight.

About Us

Sam and Stormy died and they can’t get into Heaven until they watch every single horror movie on Netflix. But, like, those movies are constantly changing, so it seems like someone is yanking their chain.
