CLASSIC MOVIE GHOSTS TAKE TWO

The Ring: The Ghost From The Well

One of the scariest ghosts scenes in all of cinema occurs toward the end of The Ring—a 2002 remake of the 1998 Japanese horror movie, Ring, which was based on a novel by the same name.

Most of the chills in The Ring arise from the disorienting combination of an old-school ghost-story theme—a haunted well—with Twentieth-Century electronic technology in the form of a television and a cursed videotape.

The Ring also echoes many earlier horror films and popular urban legends in its incorporation of mysterious and menacing telephone calls that warn the recipient of his or her own fast-approaching, unavoidable, and violent death.

Enjoy watching the wet-ghost-from-a-well scene!
