B00005FPIK.09.MZZZZZZZI just finished watching RASEN (English title: THE SPIRAL), which is the true sequel to the original RING film, as written by Koji Suzuki. I’ve seen both RING and RING 2 (as well as the american remake from last year THE RING, and I’ve skipped RING 0 which I hear is awful), but I’ll admit that it’s been years since I’ve seen them, and the version of RING I saw was on a VCD from Hong Kong with subtitles so bad that it was simply impossible to get into the storyline. Things started coming back while watching RASEN, and although it does get a bit confusing at times, the direction it takes towards the end is quite interesting and far more apocalyptic. Certainly a must-see for fans of the first film.
