After 11 years (!) without a new American entry, the Ring saga is finally getting that oft-rumored rebootquel this October. Before you get too excited about a real horror movie actually getting released in October for once, know that it’s coming out on the 28th. You have four days to see this in the theater before it starts to feel weird!
Anyway, I don’t know what to make of this yet. The first Ring is one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen, but that’s largely because of the thick blanket of atmospheric dread covering the whole thing, punctuated by brief glimpses of disturbing imagery. This trailer makes it feel like Samara is a constant presence, upping her body horror game considerably. It feels too action-y. But, I remember the first Ring’s marketing didn’t represent the actual film, so who knows?
