    What freaks me out the most is how human nature seem to screw us all in the end… you tell someone to NOT watch a video as it will lead to your eventual demise and what do we do? WE WATCH THE FREAKING TAPE! Same thing with girls deciding on a whim to take a shower while a knife wielding crazy man is out hunting them in the woods… horror movie logic at its best. :-)

  2. Thembi Ringani

    Only one person :Samara… she can just stand in one position for the whole movie and you’d still be beyond scared and probably have nightmares.

    When that hair is being pulled out of the throat, I can feel my own throat constricting – no other horror has made me feel that way.

    EEEP where to start … First off the fact that anything comes out a well , Im terrified to look down a well now .Look what happened to jack and jill from that innocent nursery rhyme …Jack and Jill went up the hill
    To fetch a pail of water ,Jack fell down and broke his crown,And Jill came tumbling after (my Theory is Samara did it )

  5. raphael

    scary movie 3 was scary where brenda vs the ring but i realized while watching scary movie 3 its not nearly as easy as kick in the head …well she didn’t win that fight either .There is no hope for anyone watching that crackled blurry vhs of the ring that is whats so terrifying about samara
