I decided to take the night off from drawing and play a video game and read a little. My wife and daughter have been watching movies and tv shows so I ended up playing the Witcher 2, which I recently got on PC.
It wasn’t long before I was in a town and walked past a well. Nothing special about this thing, it was just there. For some reason this made the thought of Ringu (or the American version by the same director, the Ring) pop in my head. No idea why, but I just kept thinking about it.
No matter if you like the movies or not, there is no denying that the little girl “spirit” imagery is powerful and sticks with you. It’s a great example of how the simplest of imagery can be extremely creepy and say tons with little to look at.
