Ringu October Spooktacular: Special Screening

Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan

An urban legend is going around that if you watch a creepy video late at night, a strange woman will appear and point her finger at you. The phone will ring, and in a week you’ll be dead.

When TV reporter Reiko Asakawa hears that her niece watched a strange video with a group of friends shortly before her death—all of whom have since died—curiosity gets the best of her. Determined to get to the bottom of it, Reiko is drawn into a horrifying nightmare in a desperate attempt to solve the mystery and save her own life.

Based on the book by Koji Suzuki, often referred to as the Stephen King of Japan, Ringu is the original, instant horror classic that inspired the Hollywood remake The Ring and kickstarted the Japanese horror movie craze! Totally terrifying and not for the faint of heart, Ringu is sure to get your October off to a spooktacular start!
