The critics have been sharply split over "The Ring" but the ordinary people
who have seen it seem to really really be impressed for the most part. I
heard some guy telling his friend about it on the Belmont el platform: "It's
the scariest thing I've ever seen. I was scared for days. When I went home
and was alone I was scared to be in the house alone. And it's about
watching a video, on TV, you know? I was scared of my TV. I didn't want it
in the house. I wanted to throw it out." Talk about good "word of mouth"!
There are a few English-subtitled copies of the original Japanese version
("Ringu") being sold on eBay. I don't expect they were made legally. This
is apparently a huge popular-culture thing in Japan. Here is a website
about it all: http://ringworld.somrux.com/index.htm
Haven't seen it yet myself.
