With the latest release of the Rings trailer, there are speculations that the movie is not as scary as its predecessors. So, with the suspense lacking in the movie, Don?t Breathe will definitely provide the feels and there are several proofs to it.
When the trailer of the Rings finally hit the web earlier this week, a lot of horror movie fanatics were really excited. But, upon watching, they were disappointed mainly because of the changes in the film.
It can be recalled that the previous two movies of The Ring franchise featured a haunted VHS, which contains a well with a long-haired girl inside. However, in the upcoming 2016 film, it would indeed showcase a huge difference between the movies because in the new one, the video is now available online, which would make it more accessible to more viewers. With that, it would lessen the scare impact and it is some kind of funny that even ghosts are coping up with the technology.
On the other hand, although Don?t Breathe is not a horror story, the suspense is definitely present in the film. Also, if your definition of scary is covering your face with your hands because you cannot watch the scene, then this movie is scary indeed.
Aside from that, the movie also has the vibe of the original Ring movies. The feeling of isolation and the victim being hopeless for being trapped in a single place are definitely showcased in the film, unlike in the 2016 Rings that would bring the viewers to different public areas like a plane, which its predecessors did not do.
With these details at hand, it is pretty clear that Rings is going to be not as scary as its predecessors and Don?t Breathe, on the other hand, will give the scary vibes the former is lacking. But, for you to do your own comparison, here are their trailers:
