Hey, remember the 2002 horror favorite The Ring? They made another one of those, only without anything that people liked about the original. You'd think that there'd be a lot of new territory to cover in "Rings," what with the original creepy VHS tape being upgraded to the digital age. But according to critics, absolutely none of that potential is capitalized on. "An drab and uninspired horror revival? In 2017?" you ask, with no inflection in your voice. Yes, I'm afraid that looks to be the case.

The RottenTomatoes page for "Rings" is currently... pretty rough, sitting in the single digits as of this writing. We've picked out some of the most brutal lines from the reviews that have come out so far. If you feel like reading more savagery, be sure to click on the links to read the full write-ups.
