    "This movie is seriously awesome and not a lot of people I talk to actually give it credit. Like "The Ring" is a classic or something like that and I tell them "No, Ringu is a classic, not The Ring." Then what I do is invite them over to my house and show it to them and most of them think Ringu is better because....it is! The product itself also came super fast and was in very good condition. All in all, I am satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend this movie who is interested in Mystery, Horror, or Suspense because this movie has all of that!"

    "This is one of the best horror films of all time. Did you notice when you turn off the old SD TV still emits sort of a residue electrical effect on the screen kinda like static? After watching this movie I would observe the screen and wait whether or not Sadako would come out of it."

    "Ringu is really well done. The Japanese version is better than the american but both are good. The film is not too gory or scary, it's just a really good story. I enjoyed it a lot and have watched it 3 times so far."
