RINGS tells a unique story and I liked it.

So I saw Rings tonight. First thought: it was much better than The Ring Two, which, A: was just as I predicted, and B: which wasn't very hard to do in the first place.

FINAL STAB (2001)

How here is where things start getting a little redundant. Final Stab tells the story of a rich socialite who throws a party where she plans to use all the cliche horror tropes to trick her guests for a murder-mystery weekend. But alas, a real killer shows up an…
