Netflix Nabs ‘Incantation,’: Record-Setting Taiwanese Horror Film

Published

on

Maybe it was the success of The Sadness, maybe it’s because the movie Incantation is the highest-grossing horror movie in Taiwanese history, or maybe because it’s just plain good, but Netflix has taken notice and the film will stream on the platform starting  July 8, 2022, in the U.S.

Whatever the reason, Incantation is getting buzz as being one of the scariest movies of 2022. It’s a cross-genre chiller with elements ranging from mockumentary to found footage. It was released in Tawain this past March and it became the highest-grossing film of the year so far.

“It has always been my dream to make films that travel around the world and are watched by every horror fan on Earth, keeping them awake at night. I can’t wait to hear viewers’ reactions,” said writer/director Kevin Ko.

The movie travels familiar territory:

Six years ago, Li Ronan was cursed after breaking a religious taboo. Now, she must protect her daughter from the consequences of her actions. This found footage film is inspired by a true story.

Janelle Ong, Netflix’s Chinese-language content acquisition manager, said to The Hollywood Reporter:  “Asian horror has been very influential in shaping the genre and bringing it to new heights, and we are proud to partner with a new generation of Asian filmmakers who are creating the movies that will define what terror means for today’s viewers.”

Take a look at the trailer below and let us know if you’ll be watching this next month.

‘The Ring’ Comes to Blu-Ray Steelbook Complete With VHS Slipcase Design

Published

on

Ring

Japan’s entry into J-Horror with Ringu was one of the best that there has ever been. When America decided to do a remake, I can still recall a lot of people being upset that it wouldn’t measure up. However, Gore Verbenski’s dark portrait was nearly a better film than the original. From its ominous start to shocking finish The Ring was effective around every corner. 20 years later folks can still appreciate Verbenski’s film and in order to celebrate the film turning 20 we are getting a cool steelbook blu-ray for the film.

The steelbook comes with an awesome VHS design slipcase. Inside the steelbook is made of static and the iconic scene with Samara and the well.

The synopsis for The Ring goes like this:

It sounds like just another urban legend — a videotape filled with nightmarish images leads to a phone call foretelling the viewer’s death in exactly seven days. Newspaper reporter Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) is skeptical of the story until four teenagers all die mysteriously 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 has just seven days to unravel the mystery.

Verbinki’s film is genuinely scary and it entirely deserves a 20th anniversary release. It is a film that has managed to stay in the conversation when horror films are being discussed. It still manages to get heavy play during the Halloween season on AMC. Rightfully so.

You can pick up your copy of The Ring’s special edition beginning October 18.
