One of the first of these American remakes of Japanese horrors that were a trend there for a while, and my Lord, it will scare the bejaysus out of you. Journalist Naomi Watts investigates the deaths of several teenagers which she discovers are all linked by a cursed videotape and the rumour that anyone who watches it will die a week later. Of course she decides that she has to watch it and then has seven days to find out where the recording came from. If only DVDs and illegal downloads were around back then, so many lives could have been saved.
