Trivia

Back when the film was announced in 2014, Paramount had initially wanted the film to be in 3D (with the film appropriately being titled The Ring 3D) before that idea was scrapped. See more »

Goofs

By the time the film introduces us to Holt and Julia, Gabriel has already watched the tape and will die in 7 days. However, several events happen in the interval that could obviously not occur in just 7 days, like Holt getting ready for college and Gabriel amassing an underground club dedicated to the cursed tape.

Quotes

Holt: [trailer] I keep... thinking about this story. There's this video that... kills you. Seven days after you watch it. The second it's over... the phone rings. And this voice says...
Samara: [voiceover] Seven days.

OK thriller but not horror enough
21 April 2017 | by Abdo0079See all my reviews

Rings is not a bad film , but it's just you can't call it strong horror Maybe Thriller or Mystery .. The story is good and could have been served better to increase the scary content of it . I consider it a good continuation of the Ring series Although I'm missing Naomi Watts . Acting was okay . Music and Picture were fine ..

Overall it's not as bad as you might hear , and not better than the first two parts ..
