Being a massive fan of the 'Ring' series, this was a must watch. I found out about it when my Japanese friend and I were googling pictures of J-Horror, and this front cover came up. Recognising Sadako, I asked my friend what the title was (as I was unable to read the kanji). She said it was the name of two ladies. Later, I did some research to find the other name was 'Kayako', so I gave the movie a watch.
Overall, it was actually quite entertaining. The new interpretation of the cursed video was excellent, and the design of Kayako's house was well done. The two exorcists were also well- portrayed (particularly Kyozo who was played by the same guy who portrayed Kiriyama in 'Battle Royale'. Really wish he was in more movies - an exceptional actor who always does unique and interesting portrayals of his characters).
The biggest let-down of the movie was the ending. Worthwhile watching though.
