New ‘Rings’ horror movie PR stunt scares unsuspecting shoppers

By on Monday, January 23, 2017

If any of you have seen the original ‘The Ring’ movie, there’ll have been that one scene that stuck with you.

To promote horror sequel ‘Rings’, the team behind this memorable ‘Carrie’ stunt in 2013 have gone back to their prank-y ways, using that scene as the basis for this new stunt:

The set-up is simple. After being given a bit of sales patter, potential customers (actors? Who knows anymore?) in a New York City electronics shop were left alone by an assistant.

The same actress who played that bloody terrifying little girl then came crawling out of a hidden compartment behind a TV’s screen, scaring unsuspecting shoppers.
