The 2002 film The Ring doesn't need any help being creepy.
But an anonymous previous owner of an old DVD copy of it sure decided to give it a helping hand anyway.
Riley Cassidy got quite a strange surprise when she opened her used copy of The Ring to find a "totally not haunted," as she described, photograph inside the case.
You can see her thrift store find here:

Some people had the nice idea to make everything significantly more creepy.

@RileyCassidy1 I’m obsessed with looking at every corner of that photo. I’m not convinced there isn’t something hiding in the background— Andrew Hazelee (@Andrew Hazelee)1620009457.0
Others simply told the girl to run, as such a photo inside the case is clearly an omen of doom.

@RileyCassidy1 Oh no, now we've all seen it! Everyone better take a screenshot of it and pass it on, or we're doomed— Kristin Cleaveland (@Kristin Cleaveland)1620057339.0
The Ring, based on a 1998 film from Japan also called Ring (or Ringu), is about a cursed videotape that causes the death of all who watch it in one week.
The American remake started a movement of American remakes of Japanese horror films that would largely rule the horror market in the mid-late 2000s, and includes other films such as The Grudge, Pulse, and The Eye.

@RileyCassidy1 I love finding weird signs of past owners in stuff I buy at thrift stores.— Nathaniel J, professional fool (@Nathaniel J, professional fool)1620000101.0

Hopefully the photo doesn't lead to a new, real life horror movie for Ms. Cassidy.
