A really, really creepy story, but very cool. Much better than the movies, which in my opinion focused more on the shock factor and actually completely changed the story to make it more commercially viable. Perfect example, in the novel the ‘killer’ was the ring virus which produced excessive fear in the victims and culminated in a heart attack. In the movies, Sadako (or Samara) was able to frighten people to death, teleport, and crawl out of a television set.
