The Worst ‘Rings’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible.

The main ghost from the series co-stars in a crossover horror film with the ghost from The Grudge called Sadako vs. Kayako, which plays at the Toronto Film Festival next month. And the American Ring franchise is back up and running too with Rings from director F. Javier Gutierrez (Before the Fall).
