Since it was first launched, the Ring Doorbell Camera has changed the way we approach the outside world. The ability to see who is standing outside your door from the comfort of your couch or wherever you might be has given us seemingly more control over who we interact with and how.
However, it’s not always butterflies and roses.
This innovation has also produced some of the most terrifying footage we’ve ever seen from real people confronted by dangerous criminals, haunting faces, and even what some would classify as paranormal activity. Honestly, some of them are enough to make you wonder if we really want or need to know who’s on the other side of the door.
Below you’ll find a list of some of the strangest and most terrifying footage caught on a Ring Doorbell Cam. Tell us which ones unsettle you the most and share your favorites that didn’t make the list in the comments below!
Terrifying Ring Doorbell Footage
#1 “Are you sure?’
This footage was released only a week or two ago. It shows a man approach a house and repeatedly knock on the door while repeating “I just have a couple of questions for you. Are you sure?’ This goes on for a couple of minutes before a man responds over the Ring Doorbell. At this point, the footage turns all the more unsettling as the man at the door says he was to assault and kill the woman inside the house.
The footage was shared by Amanda Nowack of Las Vegas. According to Amanda, she was inside the house hiding during the entire encounter. The man never saw her and was never actually speaking directly to her during tense three minutes. Thankfully, the man has been arrested, but that doesn’t make the footage any less unnerving.
#2 Masked Man
This footage from Bristol shows a man approach and knock on someone’s door. That, in and of itself, isn’t so disturbing. However, the man’s strange mask is enough to give us pause and the fact that he covers his hand before checking the door handle makes us wonder exactly what he was up to so late at night.
#3 What exactly is going on here?!
Okay, this one is just strange.
In the following video, you’ll see a man arrive home. He lets himself into his house and locks up, turning on the outside light, etc. A little while later, a young man walks up onto the front porch, looks around, and sets a package down next to a bench before leaving. A few minutes later, a young woman who is clearly looking for something, walks up onto the porch and picks up the package. Finally, the man’s daughter arrives home from babysitting and lets herself into the house.
All of this happened in under a half hour! As several in the comments pointed out, this looks like a food delivery dropped at the wrong house, but can you imagine watching it all go down on your camera alerts the next day?
#4 & 5 Creepy Clowns
They’re either auditioning for the next adaptation of Stephen King’s IT or they were out to disturb the locals. Either way, these are just creepy as hell. Don’t do this!
#6 Trick ‘R Treat
Clearly someone was a fan of Sam from Trick ‘r Treat, but this is going a little far. Notice the way they switch the “sucker” in their hand around from a normal stance to a more offensive, “I’m about to get stabby” grip. Would you open the door?
#7 And then there was Nuke…
You get a bonus with this final video because, well, I’m just a big fan of Nuke’s Top 5. All five of these are pretty creepy, and they’re a great way to round out our list! Check it out, and take a look at some of my favorite creepy YouTube channels here.
Watch Deleted Predator Tree Chase Scene From ‘Prey’
To celebrate the 4K UHD, Blu-ray™ and DVD release of last year’s movie Prey, 20th Century Studios has made available a deleted animated storyboard scene. In this clip, we see our heroine Naru in a foot chase with the Predator through the tree tops of the forest canopy.
The movie is already loaded with beautiful chase scenes and suspenseful set-ups but it is a shame we never got to see this one incorporated into the movie.
Prey came out on Hulu in 2022. It was a critical hit and fans seemed to love the unique stand-alone storyline. People did fall in love with Naru’s canine companion Sarii, whose real name is Coco. She had no previous film experience and was trained specifically for the movie.
The first video is the scene without commentary. The second one includes commentary from director Dan Trachtenberg.
‘Courtney Gets Possessed’ Looks Like The Satanic BFF Comedy of 2023
So your ex is the Devil himself and you’ve moved on to someone new. In fact, you are about to marry that person. But Satan is the jealous type and isn’t giving his blessing to this new arrangement. What to do? That is the premise of the new horror comedy Courtney Gets Possessed.
Just by watching the trailer, we get a sense this is a comedy about girl power and we love that. Last year My Best Friend’s Exorcism focused on one friend trying to eject a demon from her girlfriend’s soul, but in this movie, it looks like a whole wedding party gets involved.
With her nuptials on the line and the Prince of Darkness lurking close by, Courtney does her best to protect her childhood home on the eve of the wedding. But when her ne’er-do-well sister accidentally invites Satan inside (known more casually as Dave), he possesses Courtney – throwing a demonic wrench into her happily-ever-after plans. Courtney’s ragtag team of reluctant heroes including her sister, perfectionist best friend, and skeptical future sister-in-law must find a way to exorcise Dave, reclaim Courtney’s soul, and get her down the aisle with as little bloodshed as possible.
“In Sickness and in Hell” takes on a whole new meaning in this diabolically fun and thrilling romp. Audiences will be left pondering the line between love and possession and what it means to give ourselves to others. Will Courtney’s wedding bells ring or will they be drowned out by the screams of the damned?
Courtney Gets Possessed is written and directed by Jono Mitchell and Madison Hatfield. Produced by Hatfield and Jordan Blair Brown. Executive Produced by Stephen Beehler, Jegor Jersov, and Jono Mitchell. Cinematography by Brett A. Frager. Composed by Jordan Bennett. A Peach Jam Pictures production.
Courtney Gets Possessed will be available on digital and on Demand, Friday, November 3.
Vomit Bags Handed Out in Theaters as ‘Saw X’ is Called Worse Than ‘Terrifier 2’
Remember all the puking folks were doing when Terrifier 2 was released in theaters? It was an incredible amount of social media showing folks tossing their cookies in theaters at the time. For good reason too. If you have seen the film and know what Art the Clown does to a girl in a yellow room, you know that Terrifier 2 wasn’t messing around. But it appears that Saw X is being seen a challenger.
One of the scenes that is apparently bothering folks this time is the one in which a guy has to perform brain surgery on himself in order to hack out a chunk of grey matter that weighs enough for the challenge. The scene is pretty brutal.
The synopsis for Saw X goes like this:
Hoping for a miraculous cure, John Kramer travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure, only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer uses deranged and ingenious traps to turn the tables on the con artists.
For me personally, I still think that Terrifier 2 owns this crown though. It is gnarly throughout and Art is brutal and doesn’t have a code or anything. He just loves killin’. While Jigsaw deals in revenge or in ethics. Also, we see the vomit bags, but I haven’t seen anyone using em just yet. So, I’ll remain skeptical.
All in all, I gotta say I like both films since both are sticking with practical effects instead of going the cheapy computer graphics way.
Have you seen Saw X yet? Do you think that it rivals Terrifier 2? Let us know in the comments section.
