The light of the moon cast its eerie glow over Birmingham, as all attention focused on the projection screen.  The audience of well over a hundred people were all captivated in horror by the psychological thriller, “The Ring.”

On Friday, October 3, the Digital Media Arts Academy hosted a showing of “The Ring,” in the quad at 7:00 PM, as a way to get the school in the spirit of Halloween.  The movie was quite engaging and had a great deal of suspense.  The plot of the movie was about a strange tape that after you watch it, you will receive a mysterious phone call  telling you that you have seven days before you die.  After the seven days pass, the inevitable happens.  The protagonist, a divorced mother, watches the tape after attempting to uncover the cause for the death of her niece, and is in a race against time to save not only herself, but her only child, who had also seen the film.

The tickets for the event were sold for a low fee of $3, only $2 if they were purchased in advance, and the tickets were accompanied with a drink at no additional fee.  In front of the school, there were several food trucks for the event, selling a wide variety of different meals.  Overall, the event was well hosted and you should keep your eyes open for Media’s next event.
