Is "Ring" less scary because of DVD?

Just watched Ring for the first time and although it was pretty good and had some good scares, I was wondering afterwards if it would have been scarier watching it on VHS prior to the coming of DVD. Since the film succesfully manages to turn a familiar/ordinary every day object, a VHS tape, into something very creepy and unsettling, I thought I would have had shivers just getting the tape out of thr VCR after the movie and then get this uneasy feeling every time I took a tape out of my VHS collection afterwards to watch it.

Interesting...certainly would add to the creepiness. I would have loved to have seen this in a theater, that is with people interested in the movie..no cell phones, teenagers to ruin it. Has anyone seen this in a theater in Japan? How was the crowd,more respectful?

All 3 films are available in UK with English Subtitles and beautiful presentations. They don't have regional coding but they are provided in PAL. Be sure to check whether your system is capable of playing PAL.

I watched "Ring" and "Ring 2" and I pre-ordered "Ring 0" which is scheduled to be released tomorrow :-)

Remember, Ring should always be watched first. Ring 2 if you want to continue the story. Ring 0 is a prequel of sorts but should be watched last if you want to complete the saga.

That's so awesome. Thanks for the info guys. I plan to get those discs soon after I get the Malata in a couple of weeks. Been saving up money so I can start watching all of this great stuff I have been missing.
