From Soaps to Splatter-flicks
New York-based Kiwi, Martin Henderson (Shortland Street, Windtalkers), co-stars in October’s US box-office No.1 – The Ring. The thriller is a re-make of the cult Japanese Ringu series, and revolves around a video-tape curse. Keeping it in the extended family, the film also stars Australian actress Naomi (Mulholland Drive) Watts. SMH gives the chill assessment: “Watts and Henderson give adequate, workhorse performances, and both of them […] manage to keep their accents on straight and show the required amount of shock at each new development”.
