Are you a fan of audio dramas? Or perhaps an avid listener of books on tape? Well, this might just be the quick fix you’ve been looking for!
With the debut of both the new trailer and poster for RINGS last week, not to mention Shudder’s premiere date announcement for SADAKO VS KAYAKO, I’ve had the infamous Japanese horror franchise on my mind quite a bit lately.
A friend pointed me over to the following – the BBC Radio Drama version of THE RING… in 3D surround sound! Loosely based on the original novel, BBC Radio’s RING is an hour long original (and frightening) story intended to attack your audio senses and destined to creep you out! Grab a pair of headphones, hit play and immerse yourself in this terrifying tale! Full details and synopsis are below!
BBC Radio Drama: Ring in 3D Sound
This is the specially enhanced version of Ring.
Psychological Japanese horror about a video tape that, once seen, causes death. To get the full sensory experience of this binaural edit, it’s recommended you listen to this version with a good pair of headphones.
‘Listen. Watch. Until the end. You will be consumed by the lost.’
British journalist Mitchell Hooper lives in Tokyo with his wife Toni. When he begins investigating the mysterious deaths of four teenagers, he discovers a nightmarish secret. They all died after watching the same video tape.
When Mitchell watches the tape himself, he is cursed to die in seven days. And so as the countdown to death begins, he must solve the riddle of the curse.
Ring is Japanese horror at its best – a radio adaptation of the classic novel by Koji Suzuki, which inspired the infamous 1998 film. It stars Matthew Gravelle (Broadchurch), Eve Myles (Torchwood), Akira Koieyama (Rush) and Naoko Mori (Torchwood).
To turn up the horror put on your headphones and listen to the immersive ‘binaural’ mix of the programme for a unique 3D listening experience.
