It sounded like just another urban legend – a videotape filled with nightmarish images, leading to a phone call foretelling the viewer’s death in exactly seven days.
As a newspaper reporter, Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) was naturally skeptical of the story, until four teenagers all met with mysterious deaths exactly one week after watching just such a tape.
Allowing her investigative curiosity to get the better of her, Rachel tracks down the video…and watches it.
Now, she must enlist the aid of her friend Noah (Martin Henderson) to save her life and the life of her son (David Dorfman). Together, they have just seven days to unravel the mystery of “The Ring.”
