Imagine the scene. You’ve just returned home after vandalizing a woman’s resting place and climbing wells and thinking about ghosts and curses for many-a-nights and you sit down and the television turns out. Standing there is a bear on a unicycle and it slowly, menacingly unicycles towards the camera. You fall to the floor in disbelief as the bear gets closer and closer, eventually coming straight out of the camera and into your world, and then he gobbles you up. But that’s not what happens in Ringu. Instead this misogynistic movie finds women more terrifying than bears.

Grade: Zero/Five bears
