  1. Uh huh I had a feeling Scream, The Ring and Freddy Krueger would be on there but I had a feeling Scream would be number one. Despite me not having watched any of these, I have heard about those three phone calls. Don’t know where though. As for The Ring even back in the early 2000s I wasn’t into horror cuz I was young so I wouldn’t have heard about it then.
