Arrow Video Releasing 'Ring' Limited Edition Steelbook (UK) Blu-Ray

Arrow Video recently announced an exclusive trilogy box set of the first three Ring movies on Blu-Ray in the UK, which includes George Iida’s lost sequel, Spiral.

Not only is there going to be an epic trilogy box set to look forward next year, but the company is also treating fans to a rather stunning Blu-Ray steelbook release of Hideo Nakata’s Ring on March 18th, 2019. Head on down to check out the awesome cover artwork and bonus features, including a pre-order link RIGHT HERE!

In 1998, director Hideo Nakata (Dark Water) unleashed a chilling tale of technological terror on unsuspecting audiences, which redefined the horror genre, launched the J-horror boom in the West and introducing a generation of moviegoers to a creepy, dark-haired girl called Sadako. The film’s success spawned a slew of remakes, reimaginations and imitators, but none could quite boast the power of Nakata’s original masterpiece, which melded traditional Japanese folklore with contemporary anxieties about the spread of technology.

Synopsis: “A group of teenage friends are found dead, their bodies grotesquely contorted, their faces twisted in terror. Reiko (Nanako Matsushima, When Marnie Was There), a journalist and the aunt of one of the victims, sets out to investigate the shocking phenomenon, and in the process uncovers a creepy urban legend about a supposedly cursed videotape, the contents of which causes anyone who views it to die within a week – unless they can persuade someone else to watch it, and, in so doing, pass on the curse…

Arrow Video is proud to present Ring, the film that started it all, restored from the original negative in glorious high definition and supplemented by a wealth of archival and newly created bonus materials.
