35 - The Ring

Released 30/01/2017

This week, the Diminishing Returns gang dig up a time-capsule in the form of this episode of the show that was recorded in October 2016 to coincide with the release of the new entry in the The Ring franchise: Rings. When Rings was delayed to 2017, so, too, was this episode which covers every film in the franchise to date, as well as all of the Japanese The Grudge (or as they're known in their native language, Ju-On) movies.
