Funny prank idea
Download a cursed video (from either the remake or the original film,) in any format, and change the summary info to a 'porno' file, e.g. "Pam and Tommy XXX," and change the file name, then put the files in your p2p shared directory..

Just imagine the faces on those perverts! Bwahahahaha..

LMAO... I love it! Now, where can I find the tape in .mpg or .avi format?

By the way, a better one would be a high-quality screensaver of Samara crawling out of the well... of course, this would only work on people who had seen the movie a week before, but still...

Well, I downloaded a .mov format of the remake's cursed video from filmforce.ign.com/article...128p1.html then converted the film to an mpeg using EO-Video ( www.eo-video.com/ ) but I don't know how to change the summary info without corrupting the file :(
Does anyone know where to get .mov to .mpeg converter that allows you to change the summary info?

Also, does anyone know where to get a reasonable good version of the Japanese cursed video?

The filename to give the cursed video
Well, if you're going to do it right - you have to name it XXX.AVI (see the screenplays & writings section.)

Of course, if you're going to do it right, you have to throw yourself out the window, too...

The prank turns ugly...
Hi. I'm new. And somewhat freaked...

I've been lurking on this forum ever since I saw the remake on the 19th. Today I read this thread, and used the link to the cursed video. And when I watched the cursed video, I was thinking it would be cool if somebody (with better video editing skills than I) stuck a phone ring on the end. You know, after the static fades...the phone rings.

Be careful what you wish for.

A couple minutes and a couple more open windows later, and what do I hear coming from my speakers? A ringing phone. Never should have left the sound up after the video...

Turns out it was from a NetZero ad on another page I had up. Remind me to hate them forever...:)

Anyway, thought some of you might find that ammusing. Now, I just have to wait for my heart to slow back down before I go back to searching for a decent copy of Ringu. I'm nothing if not a glutton for punishment.

still scared
all i know is i saw the movie last night and when i got home i was freaked out. i turned on the tv after i convinced myself i was being stupid. immediately, the fone rang. it was a blocked number (samara knows about caller id). i answered the fone. someone whispered "7 days". i said thats real funny as they hung up. i went to my computer to wake it from its screen saver and there was a webpage about "the Ring".
i was freaked out. then i realized i had began to research it right before i went to see the movie and must have left it up. then i heard a noise, like something clinking agaist a piece of glass. i told my self i was being stupid again. then my tv went snowy. i ran over and cut it off immediately and went and hid under the covers. true story, i swear.

The prank
I did something that scared the s*** out of a mate after watching Ringu. He went off to the toilet after the film, i got a towel, draped it over my head, pointed at the TV, and set it to the cursed video part (I didn't look at it, I would have felt **** scared!). When he came in he wouldn't stop screaming!. I turned the lights off then slipped out, came back in (having removed my towel) and said "what's going on, why are you screaming?" and he started gibbering. TO be honest, his ranting scared me.

As for the sadako crawling out bit, you could make the program a .exe file, show the video, get it to trace you, locate the phone, dial it and play a pre-recorded "7 days". Then you could get it to (like the friday 13th virus in a way) show a film of Sadako coming up to the screen. NOW THAT'S SCARY! It's also possible to pull it off, but I lack the programming knowledge to do it.

SPOILER: I fount the bit in Ringu where the guy hits sadako over the head and into the well particularly funny; looked like slapstick!

I just want
I just want a double-image screesaver. One that pops up once every seven days with the Samara-walks scene.

Of course, when I originally had this idea, I wanted to set it to go off on the 23rd of October (I, and my ex-girlfriend saw it two days early).

I figured it would make a wonderful screensaver to put on her computer.

Re: I just want
bwahah

i found a program called gotomypc and it lets you remotely control your PC from anywhere, you actually get to see your desktop and everything! well whatever you do shows up on the monitor too..........

make sure someone is watching your comp. then log in from somewhere else, and run the video of the "tape"
Then find a video of her coming out of the well, play that....
as she nears the screen...........
remotely turn off the computer.

make sure the speakers are way up.

:P

pranks I've done
I've done a few pranks involving the movie. I took my sister to see it, and at the end I managed to get my phone to ring exactly in sync with the point the static stops. It was a little tricky, as I had to disable sounds and lights on the phone... then memorize in 5 minutes before she arrived, up up, ok, down, ok, down down, ok. Then my ringer would go off... so some effort was put forth.

Then after taking my other sister, I downloaded the official sites screen saver without her knowledge, the one that's a mock up of the tap. Static and image flashes. So after she went home I got a frantic phone call... "It's happening!".

And finally, I took my own mother... the killer of all. The woman who ceases to be afraid of anything. After seeing it, she was visibly shaken... so of course I waited until it was around 3 in the morning, turned the family room TV on to channel 2 (only static on our cable) and turned up the noise. I had to wait a few minutes but it was priceless. Imagine just having seen the movie and waking in the middle of a dark house to hear... static... and having to fumble through the dark to try and get to the TV...

I was laughing, needless to say.

My own idea.
I always thought it would be funny to go to a showing of the Ring dressed as Sumara. Sit in the front row and have friends make you look inconspicuous. Then, at the end, slip out before everyone else does. Then wait in the exit hallway around a corner. The first person to turn the corner would sh|t their pants in an instant. Im not a girl though, so I couldn't pull it off, even if I tried.

Re: My own idea.
Sure you could. Hair is a wonderful disguise - and Samara doesn't need boobies. If you're tall, bring a folding chair - even better.

Re: Mine own idea
I thought it would be funny to tap (or even grab) the person in front of you in the theater right when Samara grabs Rachel's wrist in her nightmare. What would be even better would be to put on a Samara wig, so that when the person you just annoyed turns around to see who did it, they would get a second surprise. :evil

Of course, I wouldn't actually do it to a stranger.

Makes You Nervous...
One of the last times I went to see the Ring at a small theater, I halfway expected someong to come out of the screen (there was a small unexplained hatch underneath it). I thought it would be an interesting touch... but I think it's just because I'm jumpy at the end of that movie. I sat through the credits once because I had a feeling they'd show the static with her walking towards the screen... they didn't do that either. Now the fun is almost over...

Then the DVD comes.

Re: Mine own idea
That would be incredibly cruel... I always get antsy in the theater and am just waiting for something to reach out and grab me...

what I'd do if that something ever did.

Re: Funny prank idea
True story- I live in Tucson, AZ. My sister-in-law lives in Huntington Beach, CA. My wife and I went to see the movie in Tucson at a sneak preview. So did my sister-in-law in CA. About 10 mins after the movie got out we're on the freeway and I remembered how my sister-in-law likes scary movies and I wanted to make her jealous that I had seen it already. So I call her from my cell phone JUST AS SHE IS LEAVING THE THEATER IN CA!!! She picks up and I say "SEVEN DAYS" the same way from the movie. She stoped in her tracks in the movie theater and had to collect herself before she could drive home. The funny thing is, I had no idea she went to a sneak preview the same day and time my wife and I did. It was a very freaky moment for all three of us and I had to apologize to her for putting her though that. But it is a true story and I wanted to share it with everybody.
