#31 – The Ring
Reasons why – The Ring is creepy in it’s atmosphere reminiscent of earlier horror films like John Carpenter’s Halloween. It delivers jump-scares even when I know what is going to happen, this film makes my skin crawl. Naomi Watts is really good in this type of horror film. She can’t be blamed for the bad script and special effects of the sub-par sequel.
Does it hold up? – Yes. Still as creepy as it was back in 2002.
