The Rings Threequel Trailer Asks the Question: What If the Original Ring Video Was Now Creepypasta?


A lot has changed with regards to our use of the internet since 2002, the year The Ring hit theaters, so it makes sense that its upcoming threequel, Rings, would have to address in some way what happens when the film’s malevolent VHS tape can now be played on multiple, nay, infinite screens to unlimited victims due to the advancement of technology. Of course, there’s always the question of “Why would Samara want or need a ton of people to see the Ring video if her plan seems to be to resurrect herself via actress Matilda Lutz?" However, when you consider our mindless daily consumption of videos, viral and otherwise, the answer “Well ... why the hell not?” seems dangerously close to reasonable.
