Naturally when a film gets hit with numerous delays it’s easy to assume the final product is subpar. Couple that with a bump from last October to February, and Rings already has a lot working against it. It’s a sequel no one really wants (and the one we do want is premiering on Shudder soon), it’s going to premiere when no one is interested, and this newest trailer for it doesn’t look so hot.
Instead of spreading through a VHS tape, Samara’s going through spam e-mail but it’s basically the same old schtick the other two films had. And like spam e-mail, folks will probably ignore this film and let it linger in their junk folder.
Rings opens February 3.
