Hideo Nakata’s 1998 horror film The Ring, though influenced by Tobe Hooper’s 1982 something-in-the-TV-set nightmare Poltergeist, was an instant and original classic. It spawned a raft of remakes, similar films and spoofs, and heralded an influential Japanese horror mythology that always seemed to involve young girls from watery places with lank hanks of black hair creeping up behind you with a weird creaky-groaning sound.

TV reporter Reiko (Nanako Matsushima) investigates a disturbing story about a video that has disturbing occult images and puts a death-curse on the viewer. After it is finished, you will receive a silent phone call, and one week later, you will die. Reiko watches it – and, trust me, you will jump out of your skin when that phone rings.

Dir. Hideo Nakata, 1998, 35mm, 96 min.
