This movie scared the poopers out of us. No joke. We still have trouble watching it.
To make matters even worse, I read some trivia about The Ring (2002) that creeped me out even more. The filmmakers inserted subliminal images from "the tape" all throughout the movie. Sometimes at cuts between scenes, other times at pivotal or scary moments. A frame here, a frame there. Too quick to really notice. But it explains why I'm always messing myself even though nothing is really happening on screen.
Grreeeaaatt. So this movie didn't just scare me on the surface, it scared me deep down in my subconcious.
