Just came back from the ring - in Australia
Hey everybody just attended an advance screening of the Ring in Australia and it was very good indeed. Alot of younger people were there and came out going huh? i didnt get what the hell that was about but then there were people like me who loved it. One thing i want to know is I heard somebody say you hear samara recite a poem or something about being in the well but there was nothing like that there :-/ oh wells great movie I'd give it a solid 8/10

Heh, I had a similar experience when I watched it with a full audience. A lot of the younger viewers were confused by the ending and I heard many comments like "Whaaa? ... That was stooopid . . . It's about copies?"

Of course most of those little fuckers were busy talking or playing with their cell phones, kicking each other's chairs, and giggling when another teenager would walk by them. I lost count of how many older people kept telling them to shut the hell up. The only good thing was the sadistic pleasure I got when they were screaming during different scenes. Hah it got so bad for them they were even screaming when there wasn't anything scary on screen. I was laughing so hard at them during the last 30 minutes of the movie :evil

Just came back from the ring
When I went to see the ring my first time, I was dissapointed to see so many little kids there. At first it really didnt bother me cause its not like I was there parents. But when it got to the scary parts, some not even scary, they would scream. I was watching the movie in a sold out show. The theater was full and I was lucky to get a seat cuz people were sitting on the floor. There was also this one group of about 12 early teenage girls who also would not shut up during the film. People had to tell them when the scary parts where over just so they would stop screaming. The best part was when Samara came out of the tv. Alot of people screamed even adults. I think I would have enjoyed it a bit more if it wasnt as crowded, but thats just me.

Yes, that happened to me in my second viewing of the Ring. These punk teens wouldn't shut up at the front of the theater AND the right side of the theater. Me and other people told both the groups to SHUT UP, but they kept talking, giggling, and yelling out predictions for the movie. That behavior reall pisses me of, but what are you supposed to do? Threaten their pets? Or use physical force?

Those teenagers were most likely scared. Talking and laughing kept them from really absorbing the movie. It doesn't make sense to pay 9 buck to see am voie only to avoid looking at it and annoying everyone else.
When saw the preview screening, a women in front of me just couldn't take it. That shot of Katie in the closet really spooked her. For the rest of the movie she turned her head at every scary scene. When Samara came out of the tv, she said "Oh no, Oh no, Oh my god" and turned her face into her friends shoulder. She kept whispering "Is it over? Is it over?" I noticed quite a few heads turing in the audience. Heh, very entertaining.
Has there been any reports or article about how the Ring is effecting people? It seems to be quite a phenomenon.

She doesn't recite a poem, she sings a little creepy song while she's standing over the well. Its in the flashback, right before her mom puts the plastic bag over her head. Its rather quiet and possibly easy to miss. Although, maybe they just cut it out of the Australian version.

Re: poem
I too went and saw an advanced screening of the Ring in oz last night

Possibly the scariest movie i have ever seen. I was nearly in tears i was so freaked out when she came out of the tv.

packed cinema, no abundance of young people though, depending on what you consider young. cos i'm 20 and i reckon thats pretty young.

when i got home, it took me over 15mins to get the courage to get out of my car and walk to the house. And i swear, i never want to see a well on my tv, ever. *shudders*

I was actually a little piqued at the studios for not outright requesting an R rating. I know its not in their best interests financially, but I think its their responsibility to at least give parents a real warning when it comes to this film. Back in the day (hah, I feel like a codger now) you knew that PG-13, while possibly being a bit risque, was generally safe for youngsters... after seeing the face of a young girl (who had watched with her father, no less) while leaving, this definatley isnt safe.

Well hear its Restricted (MA rating like your R) so if your under 15 you must go with an adult which I think is quite a good idea.

I originally wasn't going to see this movie because, based on the trailer, I figured it was another dumbass feardotcom-type slasher pic. However, my father took my nine year old son to see it and, needless to say, my kid was majorly creeped out. I thought I'd better check out just what he saw and here I am creeped out too and mad as hell at the old codger. I'll be sending all the therapist bills to you-know-who.

i never saw any trailers before the film...and I have to say, after watching the trailer, it doesn't do the movie any justice whatsoever. but most scarey movie trailers don't i spose.

I think an R rating would have fit the film nicely for scare content, but for gore etc there is nothing really.

and i like to think that there are a lot of "i'm so tuff" 15 years olds out there who think nothing could freak them out are shitting themselves at the though of someone crawling out their tv screen :)

9 year old son huh?

When I saw the movie for the first time, there was a family with a small child sitting behind me. He couldn't have been older then 8, but he looked more like 6-7 years. WHO brings a kid that young to see a horror film? The child wasn't even phased by the movie though. Most kids I know would have been hysterical, but you heard little small voiced comments like "Mommie its the 7th day?" and "Why is she doing that?"

I'm 20 years old and I was crapping my pants.

Oh and I missed the ENTIRE ending the first time I saw it because I had to leave the theater to meet someone outside and they took forever. When my boyfriend and our friends came out, he told me that if I thought the movie freaked me out, wait until I saw the ending. So I saw it again and didn't sleep for a few nights. I want to go a 3rd time, but have refrained from the fear I won't be able to sleep AGAIN!
