When her niece and three friends are found dead after viewing a supposedly cursed videotape, reporter Reiko Asakawa (Nanako Matsushima) sets out to investigate. 

She finds the tape and watches it... and then the phone rings. The voice on the other side tells her she will die in seven days. 

Determined to get to the bottom of the curse, Reiko uncovers the video's origin and attempts to break the spell.

Join us for this cult classic of Japanese horror – screening from a 35mm film print from the NFSA Collection.

Ringu has a minimalist intensity that can stop the heart with a simple flash-cut or a well-timed fillip in the musical score’ – AV Club
