Rings (2005)

Naturally you've seen Ringu. Everybody has.

Stop there.

Don't bother with the Korean or American remake, the spin-off series or any of the sequels or prequels. They're all crap.

All except this 16 minute reboot, of sorts.

Instead of trying to retell the same story yet again, Rings expands on the idea in a very simple way: by multiplication.

Despite its short running length, the film is very effective and manages to conjure up some interesting new images.

Even though this was made as a sort of segway from the first to the second American film, you really don't need to bother with any of them. Just see it as a fun and interesting addition to the original idea of Ringu
