Liar Liar Pants On Fire!

Aarrgghh!! How the hell do these people get away with print such blatant distortions of the truth? There is a film being advertised on the side of buses at the moment called Skeleton Key (I'm not going to link to it) and it's being promoted as "From the Writer of The Ring". Bullshit! Ringu was a novel by Koji Suzuki and it was turned into a screenplay by Hiroshi Takahasi. Ehren Kruger simply wrote the English version for a remake of an existing novel & film. A Japanese translator could have done a better job judging by the finished "film". From all reports steer well clear of the US remake of Dark Water too, instead enjoy the original.
