Leading into the 2000’s, Horror movies had started to fall off the cultural zeitgeist. The road was ending for 80’s slasher villains like Michael Myers (Halloween), Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th), and Freddy Kruger (Nightmare on Elm Street), as well as the 90’s teenage horror genre. In 2002, The Ring took audiences by storm. The Ring completely changed the landscape for what American audiences were expecting. Movies like The Ring were beginning a new wave of remakes of original Asian Horror ideas and making them for audiences in the US.
