Paramount have unveiled the first poster and trailer for the belated third film in The Ring series. I did enjoy the first two films and I do like that the second one and, from the looks of it this third one, are deviating away from the Japanese pictures, though of course none of these Yank variations will ever match the brilliant cold chill of the original Ringu. This trailer doesn’t reveal much about the plot that we don’t already know from the official synopsis and rumours, but it does hint that Samara may be attempting to come back in a corporeal form. In any case, I think it looks fairly good. I love the whole idea of the ‘Rings’ cult – groups of people who watch the tape and see how close to the seven-day deadline they can stand to go before showing the video to an agreed person.

Synopsis: A new chapter in the beloved Ring horror franchise. A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before…

Rings is directed by F Javier Gutiérrez, written by David Loucka, Jacob Estes and Akiva Goldsman, and stars Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Aimee Teegarden, Bonnie Morgan, and Vincent D’Onofrio. It’s out in the US on October 28, 2016, and in the UK 31 October – Halloween!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
