As if we weren’t scared enough by the movie, here comes a 150-plus-page adaptation, the first in Dark Horse’s Ring cycle. Based on the original Japanese movie Ringu (the basis for Gore Verbinski’s U.S. release) with some elements from the novel thrown in, this nail-biting, spine-tingling horror story about a cursed videotape loses nothing in the translation. Even with the most gruesome events happening off panel, what’s not left to the imagination is more than enough to disturb – and make you think twice about watching bootleg videotapes for years to come.
