Numerous readers have informed me that they, too, were scared by “The Ring.” Several say the original Japanese film is even scarier. Anyway, this seemed like the best email on this score to post:
The Ring is TERRIFYING!! My wife (www.patriciacaicedo.com, a good candidate for site of the day or a shout out in The Corner, no? she is a soprano specializing in Latin American classical music and –if you put her up– I will give NRODT to five people who are having June birthdays!) and I watched it at a theater and –after each scary moment– the audience would laugh with relief. It became a shared experience which made it a lot of fun.
Still, seriously, seriously, scary movie.
Now, if you think you can handle it, go rent “The Gift” and buy some Depends!
