“ The Ring Virus is a South Korean horror film based on the Japanese novel ''Ring'' by Koji Suzuki. It is also the most accurate film adaptation of the novel. I like this movie a lot. This movie may be a little too slow paced for some people, but if you understand Asian horror and if you're a fan of the novel like I am, you'll like it a lot. ” - fuwwy11139
