The movie the ring does a lot of contrasting with lights. Often the scenes have a black versus white/light appeal. The perspective of the movie is looking in on a bunch of different people who all watched this film and were told “seven days” foreshadowing they would die in seven days. For the lighting, the movie almost seems to be a bit drab and dark. It’s not quite fully lightened scenes; it’s almost like a misty view. The background of some scenes have a lot of shadows and creepy things. Some scenes have dark trees and mountains in the background while other scenes have just typical days.
