Ringu DVD - 1998 Japanese film directed by Hideo Nakata. A grainy, enigmatic videotape has the power to kill people seven days after they watch it. This brilliant premise fueled the Hollywood hit 'The Ring', but before that it conquered Japan in 'Ringu'. After the death of her cousin Tomoko, reporter Reiko hears stories of a videotape that kills everyone who sees it exactly one week after viewing. At first she discounts the rumors, but when she learns that Tomoko's friend (who watched the video with her) died at exactly the same time, she begins to investigate. After viewing the tape herself, strange things start happening, and so she teams up with her ex-husband to try to stop the death clock that has once again begun ticking. Unrated, 96 minutes. Widescreen version with audio tracks in Japanese, English, Spanish or French and subtitles in English, Spanish or French.
