I have a question, for those of you who have seen the film The Ring, does anybody have any ideas of what the theme is?

I don't really know how to pick it out, and when I do a Google search, all I come up with is the theme song or theme songs for The Lord of the Rings. :/

Seeing as you said The Ring, and not Ring, I assume you're talking about the American remake and not the original. If that's the case, it doesn't have a theme beyond ruining the original and turning it into another lame shock-o-rama, like every movie the Americans remake.

Didn't you think about checking the boards at IMDb?

I didn't even know IMDb had boards.

I justn thought that there are a lot of people here, and many of them must like The Ring for some reason.

Also, yes I do mean the American version, my favorite horror/ mystery thriller film.

I thought of adding the word "gays" somewhere in the title, and had I done that I'd have about 20 posts by now, and perhaps two of them with answers. :pi:

It has message boards, plus plenty of user input where all kinds of junk is discussed.

The Ring @ IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0298130/). Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the message board stuff and various other infos.

Seeing as you are talking about The Ring and not Ring, I have immediately lost interest. Sorry.

All I know about The Ring is that it's based on a Japanese movie called Ringu. There are 3 Ringu's, the first, which was the one that was remade, a sequel, and 0, which shows you how the tape was made.

What a coincidence, I was reading the storylines for part 1 and 2 of the American versions on Wikipedia earlier because I'm too scared to actually watch them by myself. :p

Dunno about the main theme, but isn't one revenge? (apparent in the sequel, or the original ring: 0, cant remember)

Killer videotapes?

I'd say the theme is the "Cycle of unforeseen death."


Idk dude. :pi:
