Trivia

This is the first film in the series that the makeup effects were not done by Rick Baker, who had the previous two. Rick retired from the industry in early 2015 and left his studio, Cinovation, to his protégée Arjen Tuiten, who had worked with him on Maleficent. While Rick had no involvement with this project, some of his crew, who had worked on the previous two with him, worked on this film with Arjen at his studio now called R-E-N. See more »

The Return of the Ring
3 February 2017 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"The Ring" was my first horror film experience, and despite only having seen it once, it left a mark on me with its unique imagery. I've never seen anything like it since, and I would consider Samara a horror icon. With that in mind, I liked how the film never overused her, but held back just enough, keeping her looming in the background of things. You could feel her presence oozing out of something as common in this day and age as a .MOV file.

Despite one too many jump scares (almost none of them related to Samara), the film maintains a strong atmosphere and narrative while keeping it visually stunning from beginning to end. This is a welcome return, very much the "Aliens" of the Ring filmography.
