Ring (1998)

Ring is a Japanese movie directed by Hideo Nakata and based on a novel by Koji Suzuki. It was released by Toho in Japan on January 31, 1998.

The movie stars Nanako Matsushima as an investigative reporter named Reiko. When her cousin is mysteriously killed, she begins to hear gossip about a videotape that causes anyone views it to die.

Reiko investigates further, eventually viewing the tape herself and accidentally allowing her young son to see it. She receives a strange phone call in which a mysterious voice on the other end of the line says "Seven days". In order to save her son's life, she teams up with her ex-husband Ryuji (Hiroyuki Sanada) to get to the bottom of this evil curse.
