F. Javier Gutiérrez’s Rings is technically the third film in the franchise, although I think most people are still trying to forget that The Ring Two ever happened, so at least the bar has been set pretty low for this one. Rings, out just in time for Halloween, has released its first ever trailer and it looks… decent, I guess. For one, the trailer reveals way too much, and what it does show us looks like most of the horror movies that get a wide release—think Annabelle or Ouija. I’m not saying that this movie is going to be as bad as them (although, I wouldn’t be surprised), but the trailer is definitely geared towards the, let’s call them the “jump scare” audience. That said, I’m excited to give this one a shot for Samara, who has become an icon in the genre—just think of how many TV’s she has ruined over the years. That bitch.
Rings hits theaters on October 28th.
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…
It stars Johnny Galecki, Alex Roe, Matilda Lutz, Aimee Teegarden, and Bonnie Morgan.
