'The Ring' sequel to scare teens s----less in 3-D

And then when we all were kind of bummed about the not-so-scary The Ring Two, but still didn’t trust little girls with long brown hair? Well, our distrust of brunette girls will continue (sorry, Miranda Cosgrove), because Paramount has greenlit a third film in the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Maybe I  shouldn’t be excited, what with the lackluster-ness of the second flick, but I’m optimistic — in large part because the film will be in 3D. Regardless of how you feel about 3D, you cannot deny that this scene would have been 10 times more petrifying and awesome if Samara was actually crawling at you.

I’m less excited to see the THR reporting that Paramount wants the latest installment to be more teen-centric than the original. One of the things I liked most about the original movie was that unlike Final Destination, Jeepers Creepers, and Freddy vs. Jason, The Ring felt like a more adult horror option, meaning you weren’t headed to the theater to watch rehashed, old horror villains slay high school cheerleaders while a 15-year-old couple makes out next to you.

Would you see the third Ring movie, PopWatchers? Especially since it will be in 3-D? And since no one under the age of 18 knows how to work a VHS player, Samara’s curse will pretty much cease to exist soon, right?
