from the trailer it doesn't look too bad. the shot of the ghost on the stairs is neat.

Takashi Shimizu directed it, not Sam Rami.

I thought Raimi was directing the remake and that Shimiza directed the original.

someone clear this up, Raimi's name is mentioned in the beginning of the trailer.

I believie Rami may be a producer. I am certain that it was directed by Shimizu.

Produced by: Raimi and Tapert. That's why their names are there.

Man, these asian directors definitely need to get some freaking credit. No mention of the directors on either this or Hero. I bet Ring 2 is going to be the same. It's bad enough that a lot of the people seeing these movies don't know they're remakes.

I should've said that there's no mention of the director's other than the miniscule print in the credits. The trailers try to pass off these films as though they were directed by someone else.

Sam is producing this under his new company.

Shot for shot looks just like the original.. I like! the original scared the shit out of me watching it alone in the dark.

I'm really up for this film as it will be some nice stuff.

I read somewhere that this is the first North American remake of a Japanese movie that had the same director as the original.

Sam Raimi hardly has anything to do with this movie.

From the screencap above, it looks like Shimizu's name is using the same font and size as Raimi's name. Sure, the studio is going to capitalize on name recognition, but they're hardly lying, or hiding who the real director is.

Same confusion occurs when people say "Luc Besson's Taxi".

Welcome to Hollywood. Please wipe your green off at the door.

Marketing is a big part of the studio life. You get a project and you pull as many big names you can that are somewhat involved. Geller is of course the big star of it. But when you have Raimi's company doing it you pull his name out also because of the spidey fame. Simple as that it will confuse folks into what role Raimi has involved in it and you sell it. Nothing wrong with it. This is one of the flagship films for his company so I doubt he has anything negative to say about that course of action.

Well, let me be the first to thank you Tarantino, for making such a great film and presenting it to us..

Oh wait... not only did you not direct it? but you aren't even the same Tarantino? WTF?! oh well.. whatever will get people's butts in the seats.

That's hardly the truth. While he isn't smothering the director, he has made numerous casting choices as well as other decisions. I've read some interesting articles in the rcent Rue Morgue and Fango issues. So, it more than just having his name attached to it.


Can't wait for this.

Bump since the commercials are now in regular rotation on TV. They're really creepy, too. The thing going down the stairs reminds me of the scene at the end of Ringu.

Actually, the only things I know about The Ring 2 is that it's directed by Hideo Nakata and it's not a remake of the Japanese Ring 2. So there you go.

As for this, I won't be seeing it. The original did nothing for me and this looks to be the same.

Couldn't agree more.

I can't decide if I should watch the original before seeing the remake or not.

Considering they look the same in alot of scenes, and if they follow the great scares of the original i say see it in theatres first to experience the frights in a big theatre.
