The Ring 3(D)?

09.14.2009

Color me unenthused for this latest bit of news, which concerns the continued ravaging of one of my favorite horror films ever. According to Bloody Disgusting, there is now brand new "talk" concerning a potential third installment of THE RING, with the aid of glorious 3D. This "talk" surely originated once a far shittier horror franchise (FINAL DESTINATION) managed to blow up the box office with its latest 3D installment, and they figured THE RING might be able to do the same.

I’m thoroughly not amused by such a prospect, as the sequel to THE RING was one of the biggest drop-offs in quality I’ve ever seen in a series. I will fight to the death that the Gore Verbinski’s first film actually surpassed the original RINGU in quality, and is a new horror classic. But with already one horrendous sequel tainting that achievement, I’m not sure I could handle another one…especially in 3D.

Even though this is just at the conception phase, I have little doubt that we’ll see it on screen eventually, along with a 3D installment of more than likely every other horror franchise ever made. We’re already getting HALLOWEEN 3D next year, and I’ll bet you $50 you’ll be wearing 3D glasses walking into SAW VII as well.

Extra Tidbit: As of now, I hate 3D, if you couldnít tell. Iím hoping AVATAR will change my mind.

I'm With You

I detest 3D. You, Me, and Michael Bay all agree on that. Avatar is the only thing that could change my mind, but at this rate 3D is just another excuse to remake what the remakes have already remade. It's a vicious cycle

Good idea. Bad timing.

I agree with most of everyone on this part. There are some movies that are not made for 3D viewing and well...there are some that actually can work. Why are they thrusting this concept of the Ring in 3D out during the fad of 3D movies? I don't know but it would make a great popcorn flick. If done right, this movie might actually creep me out.

Surprisingly

The Ring really did surpass Ringu in quality and there's probably nothing more terrifying than Samara coming at me in 3D...

3d HORROR FILMS are going to kill the genre! Not every people in the world can see movies in 3D teathers, and when u see a 3d horror flick in 2d it really sucks! They should film the movies in the 2 versions, because it's very stupid when u see this movies at home in dvd with cgi blood and parts of the body fying to the screen. They aren't scary or gory, just bad cgi.

They began experimenting with 3D over 50years ago. Soon 50% of all movies coming out will be in 3D. We should have seen this coming

Let me just say, not necessarily in defense of this news, that I always felt the climactic scene in "The Ring" would have seemed a lot scarier if it were done in 3D. This coming from someone who has never sat through a 3D movie in his life.

I've got a better idea

Although not a horror film, I'd rather see Weekend at Bernie's 3D. I'm sure I'm not alone on this.
