Storyline

Akane is a high school teacher who hears a rumor from her students that there is actual footage on the Internet of someone's suicide. The footage is said to drive anyone who sees it to also commit suicide. Akane does not believe the rumor at first, but when one of her female students dies after viewing the footage, she and her boyfriend Takanori are fatefully drawn into the horror that has been created by the man who appears in the suicide footage, Kashiwada. Kashiwada's intention is to create chaos in the world by bringing back Sadako and the power of her curse. Now Akane has to fight against Sadako and Kashiwada to save the lives of herself and Takanori. Written by Uncle Creepy / dreadcentral

Missing all the ingredients
22 November 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

From the original Ringu series that is. It might try to come up with something fresh and original, but it doesn't really succeed. The main actress is really beautiful and she may be able to act, but it's not like she has to in this movie. Many people will also have issues with CGI, but it's not about the CGI itself, but the fact that it is poor CGI, added to make the 3D thing "work".

I only watched the 2D version, but it's crystal clear, where the 3D is supposed to kick in. Even the version I watched is "comin' at you"! But that does not warrant watching this movie. At least not on my watch. But somehow they seem to have managed to make enough money to actually be able to do a sequel to this (according to IMDb) ... I'm not holding my breath (sorry for the pun).
