Katie Walsh returns to talk to the groundbreaking director Hannah Macpherson (Pure) about 2002’s The Ring. Hannah discusses her fascination with the film and how it ties into her obsession with the effects of technology on the human experience. She also chronicles the making of her Snapchat film, Sickhouse, and how it really tricked the audience into thinking the events were real.
Pure is streaming on Hulu now.
And if you haven’t seen The Ring…be careful, it’s scary.
