I watched this trailer yesterday afternoon and it stuck with me all the way until this morning. I’m sharing it with you so we can all be creeped out by it together! You’re welcome.
This looks like The Ring except with Joker toxin instead of scary, little, ghost girls climbing out of wells.
True story, about a week after The Ring was released in theaters, a prank caller left a threatening message on my answering machine about how I was going to die seven days after I listened to the message. Not knowing what The Ring was about at the time, I completely freaked out. I called my friend who lived a few blocks away and slept on his couch for two nights before I felt safe enough to go home. Thanks again, Dave!
