ring 1 - i read the manga first, so i thought the girl in the closet was going to be a lot scarier, but other than that i didn't think it would be scary. and, bcuz the girl in the closet wasn't scary, nothing in the movie was scary to me at all
ring 2 - luckily there were only like 3 other ppl in the theater when i went to see this, or else they would have been totally annoyed with me cuz i laughed through almost the entire movie.
ringu - after hearing it was scarier than the ring, i wanted to see it. i rented it, and was bored out of my mind.
another movie i have to complain about not being scary was the grudge. i heard it was scary, but instead i ended up laughing through most of it. so i also rented ju-on, and it wasn't scary either it, but it was at least a little more interesting (even though it was almost exactly the same...)
