The Ring is a 2002 American psychological horror film directed by Gore Verbinski and starring Naomi Watts and Martin Henderson. It is a remake of the 1998 Japanese horror film Ring.
Both films are based on Kôji Suzuki's novel Ring
and focus on a mysterious cursed videotape which contains a seemingly
random series of disturbing images. After watching the tape, the viewer
receives a phone call in which a girl's voice announces that the viewer
will die in seven days. The film was a critical and commercial success.
