1. The Ring
This movies includes flashes at the beginning and end that you might think are just creepy… until you slow them down and watch them in slow motion and release they show you the entirety of the tape in the story. You’ll have to slow it down enough to watch it frame by frame to catch the whole thing, then you’ll probably wish you hadn’t.
Remember that human skeleton at the end of the movie? It’s authentic. It was purchased in India especially for the movie.
Gary Oldman reportedly whispered something in each actor’s ear just before filming the scene where the bat flies away. No one knows what was said, but it sufficiently horrified each actor enough to get a genuine expression from each for the scene. What could he have possibly said?
