You will die seven days after watching this.

OK. Maybe not. But in the J-Horror great, Ringu, watching the cursed video guarantees death at the hands (or eyes, to be precise) of Sadako, the vengeful ghost of a young girl. What makes Ringu unique is the ghost's method of destruction. Sadako does not physically maim or assault her victims--she literally scares them to death. After seeing Ringu's flesh-crawling finale, in which Sadako climbs out of the TV and hurky-jerkily stalks her victim before unleashing the evil eye, this is not surprising,

Creepy stuff.
