24. The Ring
(2002): Samara comes out of the TV.
Yes, the long-haired girl ghost got played out by the time the last decade came to a close, but we’ll never forget Samara. When the troubled spirit escaped the safe confines of a television to terrorize Martin Henderson, every hair on every arm in the theater stood at attention. That moment in The Ring was powerful enough to usher in two eras of horror at the exact same time - the Asian remakes and the PG-13 horrors.
