Plot

Rachel watching the tape.

The story begins with two teenage girls discussing the events of the previous weekend, during which one of them, Katie Embry (played by Amber Tamblyn), went to a cabin in the mountains to spend time with some friends. While talking, the subject of a supposedly cursed videotape is brought up. The other girl, Rebecca 'Becca' Kotler (played by Rachael Bella), states that anyone who watches this video receives a phone call, in which a voice says, "you will die in seven days." Then, exactly seven days (to the minute) after viewing the tape, the viewer dies. Katie reveals in horror that she had watched that video at the cabin last weekend with three friends, exactly seven days earlier. After a series of unexplainable occurrences, involving a television in the house turning itself on and eerie sounds, Katie is mysteriously killed while Becca has the misfortune of watching, causing her to be institutionalized in a mental hospital.

Rachael Bella in The Ring Rachael Bella is an up and coming actress probably best known for her role as Becca Kotler in the movie The Ring. ...


The film then introduces Katie's aunt, Rachel (played by Naomi Watts), a journalist living in Seattle. Her son, Aidan, was not only Katie's cousin but also a good friend, and seems to be sensitive to psychic occurrences. Aidan's teacher brings to Rachel's attention that he had been drawing pictures of his cousin dead in the ground for weeks before Katie actually died. At Katie's funeral Rachel's sister asks her to investigate her daughters death, and as she begins she learns of the videotape. Her investigation leads her to the same cabin in the mountains where Katie and her friends had watched the tape. There, she finds the tape and eventually watches it. After that the phone rings and a girl says - seven days. The next day she calls Noah, Aiden's father, to see the video. He asks her to make a copy for further investigation. Unfortunately, Aidan watches the tape a couple days later. Naomi Ellen Watts (born September 28, 1968) is a British-Australian actress known for her roles in Mulholland Dr., the film remakes of The Ring and King Kong, as well as her Academy Award-nominated role in the film 21 Grams. ...


After viewing the tape, strange things begin to happen to Rachel, and presumably anyone else who had viewed the cursed images. She experiences terrible nightmares, nose bleeds, and curious surreal situations (such as when she pauses a section of the cursed tape in which a fly is running across the screen, she finds she is able to pluck it from the monitor). Rachel's investigation turns to the tape itself, which contains a seemingly random series of disturbing, grainy, black and white images. Investigating those images leads Rachel to Anna Morgan (the woman seen in the tape) who lived on Moesko Island with her husband and daughter, and raised horses. Rachel discovers that a mysterious tragedy befell the Morgan ranch, in which all the horses seemed to go mad, killing themselves attempting to flee the ranch. This causes Anna Morgan to become severely depressed, and shortly after taking residence at a mental institution, commits suicide. Rachel goes to the Morgan's house and finds Richard Morgan who refuses to talk about the video or his daughter. Rachel goes to see the local doctor to ask about the Morgan family. The old doctor tells her that Anna wanted a child more than anything, but was never able to successfully carry a fetus to term. One winter they left and returned with Samara whom they adopted. But after some time Anna started complaining about visions that only happend when Samara was around, so she sent them both to a mental institute on the continent. Noah goes to the institute and finds Anna Morgan's file and discovers that a video is missing. Rachel goes back to the Morgan's house and after watching the video of Samara's conversation with the doctor is confronted by Richard Morgan. He states the girl was evil, and then promptly kills himself with an elaborate toaster-in-the-bathtub type scheme.


Noah arrives at the house just after, and they go to the barn to discover a little room where Samara was kept by her father. Behind the wallpaper they discover a burned image of a tree recognizable from the video tape, and Rachel remembers seeing it near the cabin at Shelter Mountain Inn. They arrive there and discover a well underneath the floor. Rachel is led to where Samara was killed; at the bottom of a well. Rachel gets stuck in the well and finds Samara's body. Samara shows her how her mother took her to the well and dropped her there. Rachel notifies the authorities, and Samara is given a proper burial, presumably putting her spirit to rest. Noah asks her how long could you survive there and Rachel guesses that you could survive seven days.


At this point it seems that everything is well again, and Rachel informs Aidan that they will no longer be troubled by Samara. However, Aidan quickly corrects her and says that Samara's spirit has been released, evident by the bruises on his arm, given by Samara in a nightmare that Rachel also experienced. In the film's most unsettling and memorable scene, Noah is going over some film prints in his apartment when his TV turns on to static, in the same fashion that Rachel's niece Katie experienced before her death. Noah turns it off casually before the TV turns itself on again, which alerts Noah. He is then treated to a recurring image of a well, in which a long-haired female figure (Samara) crawls out of the well and slowly walks toward the screen. It intensifies as Noah quickly backs away and Samara literally crawls out of the television set. Noah knocks over a shelf in fear and crawls away before turning around, only to have Samara stare directly at him, causing his inevitable death which Rachel discovers after racing to his apartment. Rachel is scared and worried that Aidan would die too when she realizes that the only way to escape Samara after watching the video is to make a copy of the tape and show it to someone else, thus continuing the cycle. The movie ends with Rachel helping Aiden to make a copy of the tape.


Critical Reception

The Ring received mixed reviews from film critics, receiving a “fresh” 72% favorable reviews out of 166 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes,[1] and a Metacritic score of 57/100 (mixed or average) from 36 reviews.[2] IGN’s Jeremy Conrad praised the movie for its atmospheric set up and cinematography, and said that “there are 'disturbing images'… but the film doesn't really rely on gore to deliver the scares. … The Ring relies on atmosphere and story to deliver the jumps, not someone being cleaved in half by a glass door.”[3] Film Threat Jim Agnew called it “dark, disturbing and original throughout. You know that you’re going to see something a little different than your usual studio crap.”[4] Praise went to the director Gore Verbinski for slowly revealing the plot while keeping the audience interested, “the twists keep on coming, and Verbinski shows a fine-tuned gift for calibrating and manipulating viewer expectations.”[5] This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ... Metacritic is a website that collates reviews of music albums, games, movies, TV shows, DVDs and books. ... For other uses, see IGN (disambiguation). ... Film Threat is the name of a magazine and website devoted to coverage of independent film. ...


Despite the praise given to Verbinski’s direction, critics railed the characters as being weak. The Chicago Reader’s Jonathan Rosenbaurn said that the film was “an utter waste of Watts… perhaps because the script didn’t bother to give her a character,” [6] whereas other critics such as William Arnold from Seattle Post-Intelligencer said the opposite: “she projects an intelligence, determination and resourcefulness that carry the movie nicely.”[7] Many critics regarded David Dorfman’s character as a creepy-child “Six Sense cliché.”[8] A large sum of critics, like Miami Herald’s Rene Rodriguez and USA Today’s Claudia Puig[9] found themselves confused and thought that by the end of the movie “[the plot] still doesn't make much sense.”[10]


Trivia

  • The success of The Ring opened the way for American remakes of several other Japanese horror films, including The Grudge and Dark Water. A sequel, The Ring Two, was released in North American theaters on March 18, 2005. It was directed by Hideo Nakata, the director of the original Japanese film.
  • Before Naomi Watts was cast in the leading role, other actresses were considered for the part including Liv Tyler, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Connelly, and Gwenyth Paltrow. Kate Beckinsale almost got the part but was turned down because the director felt she looked too young.
  • There was a subplot that was dropped from the film, having been written and shot that featured Chris Cooper as a child murderer. Cooper's villainous character appears in the beginning of the film, who tries to convince journalist Rachel (Watts) that he has been rehabilitated and ready to reenter society. But Rachel sees through this facade and helps put him back in jail. At the end of the film, Rachel drops off a copy of the videotape for him at the mental hospital where he is staying. The only remainder of this subplot is a picture of Cooper in a newspaper article, which Noah picks up his coffee mug from.
  • There are brief flashes of the "ring" motif throughout the film. There is at least one instance of a barely detectable single frame of the ring being spliced into the film between scenes, such as at 57:35, just after the horse jumps off the ferry. The ring also appears briefly during the opening DreamWorks logo, as well as just above the fading light of the lighthouse when Rachel returns to the Morgan house at night.
  • At one point in the film, in the scene where Rachel is researching Anna Morgan and Moesko Island, she finds information on a website which is located at: http://www.moeskoislandlighthouse.com. This one-page website actually existed until it was discontinued in 2004. The website has since been copied and placed at: http://www.sweb.cz/moesko/
  • The "Don't Watch This" feature on the DVD has outtakes from the film that are edited into a short film. It also appears on the VHS version after the film's end credits. We discover from the scenes that the camp ground owner near the well also saw the tape. Noah discovers his body in a canoe on the lake near the camp when he and Rachel returned there on day 7. The camp owner presumably watched the film shortly before Rachel. The deleted scenes also show Rachel renting two movies, Pokémon: The First Movie and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which she presumably did to return her and her son's copy of the tape.
  • As an exclusive DVD feature; if you move the cursor one up from the "Play Movie" option and press the select button on your remote, the uncut version of the tape is played. After this track plays, the DVD returns to a faux main menu which is identical to the real main menu, except a ringing phone is heard. If the viewer has a home theatre system, the ring is sounded through the rear speakers, increasing the illusion that their phone is actually ringing.
  • When the movie was released on VHS in North America, the video was packaged in a transparent plastic sleeve rather than a standard cardboard one. This gives the video the appearance of a rental tape one would find at a local store. The DVD came in a standard black keep case.
  • Just before the release of the sequel, The Ring was re-released with an extra disc that had a fifteen minute short film, Rings, which was intended to bridge The Ring and The Ring Two. Rings is also included as a special feature in the DVD release of The Ring Two.
  • Aiden took their name from the child in the movie[11], and sampled a quote from the movie in their song "I Set My Friends On Fire".
  • During the cursed video, approximately 25 seconds in, a young boy's voice can be heard faintly singing about a weeping willow. This audiotrack is sampled from the 1961 classic The Innocents.
  • A crossbuster logo is briefly visible inside a locker. This is a reference to Gregor Verbinski's previous experience directing videos for punk band Bad Religion.
  • This is one of a few films to be rated PG-13 in the USA but to then get an MA15+ rating (equivalent to the US R rating) in Australia.
  • The Ring is listed as #20 on Bravo's 100 Scariest Movie Moments
