Screamfest Presents Hideo Nakata’s Ringu This Saturday!

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Seven days, one night only. Screamfest returns — presenting Hideo Nakata’s 1998 masterpiece of J-horror, Ringu, and stick around after the screening for a virtual Q&A with Nakata himself!

When her niece is found dead along with three friends after viewing a supposedly cursed videotape, reporter Reiko Asakawa (Nanako Matsushima) sets out to investigate. Along with her ex-husband, Ryuji (Hiroyuki Sanada), Reiko finds the tape, watches it — and promptly receives a phone call informing her that she’ll die in a week. Determined to get to the bottom of the curse, Reiko and Ryuji discover the video’s origin and attempt to solve an old murder that could break the spell.

Based on the novel, Ring by Koji Suzuki, Ringu is an iconic and analogue-tinted slice of modern horror.

Make sure to arrive early when doors open at 7:30PM for trivia, prizes, and more!

Ringu screens Saturday, March 30th.
