Since the early 2000s, several of the more popular Japanese horror
films have been remade. Ring was one of the first to be remade in
America as The Ring , and later
The Ring Two
With the exception of The Ring, most American remakes of Japanese horror films have received negative reviews (although The Grudge received mixed reviews). One Missed Call has received the worst reception of all, having earned the Moldy Tomato Award at Rotten Tomatoes for garnering a 0% critical approval rating. The Grudge 4 was announced in 2011, but no news has surfaced since. Similarly, The Ring 3D was reportedly green-lit by Paramount in 2010, and it was reported in 2016 that the film would be renamed Rings and released in early 2017.
Many of the original directors who created these Asian horror films have gone on to direct the American remakes. For example, Hideo Nakata , director of Ring, directed the remake The Ring Two; and Takashi Shimizu , director of the original Ju-on, directed the remake The Grudge as well as its sequel, The Grudge 2 .
Several other Asian countries have also remade
