Japanese horror revived by a dead girl
Ringu, the highest grossing Japanese horror film ever, has spawned two sequels, a television series, a Hollywood remake, and a number of similar movies (including Ju-on).
It is the chilling story of a young journalist investigating a mysterious videotape that seems to be killing everyone who watches it.
Classically Japanese, the film uses creepy, exaggerated motions from traditional kabuki theatre to increase the frights.
