If your childhood was anything like mine, TV static, water wells, and long, black pieces of hair are a few of your LEAST favorite things because of 2002’s The Ring:
Like, if I ever take some NyQuil, I’m GUARANTEED to get a visit from this rotting-dead tween, Samara:

And because this IS the internet, here she is with her little kitten 😍😍😍:
Daveigh, who’s now 27, also voiced Lilo Pelekai in Disney’s 2002 animated classic Lilo & Stitch and starred as Rhonda Volmer in HBO’s Big Love from 2006-2011.
From seven days to 5,479 days — I’M SHOOK.
