Ringu

1998

Hideo Nakata
Director

A journalist investigates a mysterious death, seemingly caused by a cursed video tape.

Despite the worthy remake, the original is still worth seeking out. The scares and plot in the middle section are completely different and the ending creepier (and makes the curse a little clearer).

FYI: I'm guessing at the identities of the two groups of three college/high school students.
