It may all be a little foggy now, but back in 2002 the success of Gore Verbinski’s remake of Hideo Nakata’s “The Ring” kicked off  what would quickly become a Japanese horror film remake frenzy. While limp entries into the subgenre like “Shutter” or “The Eye” would eventually help cannibalize the market for these films later in the decade, the success of the first “The Ring” would bring Nakata’s own talents stateside for a sequel, along with seeing Jennifer Connonly star in a remake of his “Dark Water,” directed by Walter Salles of all people.
