Just when you thought it was safe to start hanging out at the bottom of a well…ok, I guess that’s never safe…a new Ring will be coming to a theater new you. Don’t buy it on VHS though. The Rings Trailer was recently released to give us a glimpse of what’s coming.
Little demonic Samara returns to kill anyone who watches the infamous tape in the creepiest walking backwards way possible. It stars Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz as Julia, a faithful girlfriend that watches the tape to save her stupid boyfriend.
She apparently finds a film within a film and all hell breaks loose. You know, the usual. While the original Ring was a force of cinematic nature, its sequel left much to be desired, and this one looks like someone threw up a cast and made it stick. Blech!
I’ll admit I don’t have a lot of faith in this movie, but I’m hoping to be proven wrong. The trailer could pretty much be swapped with every other larger budget horror movie out there. It doesn’t look like it’s going to have anyone from the original in it.
The biggest redeemer for me, and the likely reason I’ll rent it when it comes out, is the addition of Vincent D’Onofrio. Samara was super creepy in the first film, and, I think, done even better in the second, but by now she’s pretty played out.
Let’s hope they give the poor girl a few new tricks up her grimy sleeves, or else it’s just going to be the same movie with younger characters. I give her props, because she really helped usher in the weird walk and superfast face shaking, but you can only kill people the same way so many times before it gets boring.
Hey look, she’s coming out of the television…again.” Do I have high hopes? Not at all. If they can somehow make it so it doesn’t plain suck, I’ll be surprised. Check out the Rings trailer below and let us know if it gives you the chills.
