Overview
The Ring is the critically acclaimed, smash hit thriller David Ansen of Newsweek says "raises some serious goosebumps!" This cinematic thrill ride will keep you on the edge of your seat from the stunning opening to the astonishing conclusion!

It begins as just another urban legend – the whispered tale of a nightmarish videotape that causes anyone who watches it to die seven days later. But when four teenagers all meet with mysterious deaths exactly one week after watching just such a tape, investigative reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) tracks down the video...and watches it. Now, the legend is coming true, the clock is ticking and Rachel has just seven days to unravel the mystery of The Ring.

Easter Eggs
Watch the video from the Video Tape:

From the main menu, move the cursor to the selection "Look Here". Then press the down arrow once until the cursor disappears. Then press select (enter). You will then watch the approximately 2 minute long video that is on the Ring Video Tape. When the video is complete, you will be taken back to the main menu... and eerily, you will then hear the telephone ring.
