TOPIC: Many of the filmmakers associated with J-horror acknowledge influences from American directors (e.g., Tobe Hooper The Texas Chain Saw Massacre; John Carpenter Halloween; John Cunningham, Friday the 13th; Wes Craven, A Nightmare on Elm Street). And it does seem that there are shared anxieties in Japan and the United States around gender dynamics and familial structure. Randy, in Wes Craven’s 1996 (meta-)slasher film Scream, outlines the tropes of the American slasher genre. In what ways does Ringu conform to “the rules” as outlined by Randy? Or is Ringu completely different?
