The Tape
She-is-here.com and its companion site, the-tape.com, seem to be fairly obvious marketing attempts to 'blairwitch' the upcoming sequel to the horror movie, The Ring (i.e. to create hoax websites to generate interest about it). But still, I've received a couple of worried emails from people who have watched 'the tape' and are a little concerned, so I thought I should post something about it. As far as I know, no stringy-haired decomposing girl is going to crawl out of a well and kill you if you watch the tape. Though I'm playing it safe. I made my wife watch the tape. She then made the cat watch it. My cat is the one posting this message (she hit the mouse button with her paw to click submit), so if any one of you watches 'the tape' she'll be safe.

Been reading your bio Rod. The Ether Bunny? It's scary to think that I just may know what it is that you are refering to.

Alright. Googled it. I do know what you're referring to. Now I need to go wash my brain with soap.

hey everyone, im here because ima scaredy cat whose afraid to watch the silly 'fake' movie.

i hear u speaking about Dark Water- its good, iv seen it (d/l it actually!). there are no subs, but u get the idea. visually its very cool, but its not scarey like ring. you feel conpassion for the little girl in Dark Water, but she isnt anything like Sadoko. which is a nice change. but still nice effects, etc...

i remember a couple years ago there being another fake movie, but it had soemthign to do with mermaids and pssoibly maggots? of course iw as too scared to watch it, im very silly,m but has anyone seen it/have the link?

thats all! ciao!!!

It was a roleplay. The roleplay continues on http://www.ringscommunities.com.

I don't think that the-tape.com and she-is-here.com no longer exist. I used to go to she-is-here.com all the time but neither of them show up, even when I use google and click on the link. I know it was a hoax, and a funny one at that.

I can't open the link! it seems to be dead!

my friends where all too scared to watch it... they sent it to me and i watched all but alittle at the end and they told me to stop... i knew it was a bunch of crap.
Posted by Jewels  in  lalaland  on  Sun Jan 08, 2006  at  06:03 PM
okay what i have too say is true, and no it is not anything scary, who ever wants to watch the so called 'tape', who ever will watch the so called 'tape' will be fine, absolutely fine. My friend and i watched the tape about..............
12 months ago,so about the start of 2005, and i am still here today, a year later, and personaly, i recon, any one who watches the tape and believes it has serious problems,
Hello
the ring 1 and 2 is made up and the images from the so called tape are mostly from the ring 1 and 2..............Wake up people

It's called an ARG (Alternate Reality Game). I've been playing for years. People watch the-tape.com, and are led to she-is-here.com by a link at the end of the tape. The site is made out to look real, but if you go on the forums there is a page you can click that says "Yes, this IS just a game." It's actually very intruiging and a lot of fun.

Sorry you guys don't have imaginations. =(
