It is becoming increasingly difficult to advertise new films in such a way that interest increases and child seats become backward. A few years ago, producers went out of their way to advertise their films, and this led to a series of pranks that sparked public interest. There are only 10 of several funny, if sometimes dark, pranks on this list that have startled people.
10 great pranks from famous people
10th It’s all in the eyes
While the first Ouija film didn̵
This practical joke is about a woman with an eye proposis who builds a fortune-telling booth and encourages people to come into the house for “free reading”. She uses an ouija board to tell the victim’s fortune and eventually lets her get almost wet or run away screaming when her eyes suddenly protrude grotesquely from her eye sockets. At the same time, a body bursts through the wooden floor and intensifies the hysteria.
Fair warning: the striking thing is gross. So if you are easily disturbed, you might miss them.
9 Turn off the TV!
Shopping for a first or new TV is pretty exciting. Deciding which resolution is best and which screen size best suits the room you want to put it in takes time, discussion and focus. The last thing you expect is that a trailer of the movie Rings that is playing on the TV you are studying is going to end up in a real Samara crawling out of you!
This is exactly what happened when shoppers, unaware of the hidden cameras surrounding them, faced Samara in a television store.
First you look at it, then you die.
8th Baby it’s cold outside
Reviewers and moviegoers weren’t thrilled with the disaster film Geostorm, but some scenes in the film were really stunning. These include hailstones the size of boulders and skyscrapers that tip over like dominoes. And who can forget the terrifying picture of a tsunami in Dubai? The best scenes also include people frozen in the desert and sun worshipers on a beach that runs away from the worst cold front in the world to be overtaken and frozen immediately.
In an exaggerated coup to promote this film, a taxi was manipulated to send a fake news report. And in the middle of summer, so to speak, turn an entire city block into an ice block. Those who got into the taxi were confronted with frozen “corpses” and dead birds that fell on the windshield. Watch the facial expressions video when commuters realize that everyone is frozen outside the window.
7 It is a bloodbath
The Carrie remake in 2013 drew more than a prank on the unsuspecting public to arouse interest in the film. One of the pranks took place in a café and saw a man being lifted to the wall and plastered after a “customer” lost her coolness and used her “telekinetic” powers.
Another practical joke was put up in a nightclub in Russia to scare people who went to the bathroom. As they washed their hands, frothy “blood” appeared as they rubbed the soap between their fingers. Since they inevitably grab a paper towel, they are greeted with the reason for the blood.
6 mirror Mirror on the wall
A common scene in several scary movies is where the protagonist stares in the mirror to wake himself up from a nightmare after splashing water on his face. Sometimes they open a bathroom cabinet and when it is closed another face either appears in the mirror on the door or they see a figure lurking behind them.
A trick was developed for the Conjuring 2, in which a two-way mirror was used to show unsuspecting bathroom users to Valak, the creepy nun. When they look in the mirror, the lights flickered on and then Valak apparently jumps out of the mirror at them. However, that’s not all, as the following video will show. Watch the last man’s funny reaction until the end.
10 seemingly innocent pranks that ended in tragedy
5 Jaws, is that you?
Sharknado is a 5-film franchise that everyone likes to hate for the terrible special effects, poor dialogue, and strange-looking sharks in an incredibly fake tornado. Obviously a B movie, nobody thought the first movie would ever get a sequel, and yet we’re here. With slogans from “Enough Said!” Until “Make America Bait Again” you can only sigh.
Fortunately, there is a big trick to make up for the extreme lameness of these films. For Sharknado 2: The Second One, Syfy decided to put an animatronic shark in a London fishmonger. Hidden cameras have captured buyers’ reactions when the shark comes to life as they walk past. Check that the older lady is not responding to the excitement.
4th Annabelle comes to life
To promote The Conjuring’s spin-off, Annabelle, the producers used the Toronto Fan Expo in 2014 to play a wonderfully creepy trick on visitors. They disguised a woman as Annabelle and placed her so that she looked like a mannequin where people could pose for photos.
As they look into the camera to take the perfect picture, “Annabelle” comes to life next to them and tries to grab them.
See how they run.
3rd Open house with a difference
The success of the first film on paranormal activity spawned a variety of sequels, including Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, released in 2015. To generate hype about the release, a prank was played in the original house used for the first film. The house was made available for inspection by real estate agents during an open house, and potential (completely unsuspecting) buyers got much more than they expected. Let’s just say: welcome to the ghost dimension, folks!
2nd Not an average child
The horror film Devil’s Due was released in 2014 and a stroller was released in New York to promote it. The stroller moved on its own and as people researched an animatronic devil baby jumped right out of their worst nightmares. The baby “lured” people by crying and then startled them after seeing what he looked like. In addition, the baby had a penchant for projectile vomiting and giving fingers.
1 Skip the bus stop
Many people admit that they are not now, and they will never be afraid of one of the children’s feature films. And they shouldn’t be, considering that the villain is just a tiny, crazy-looking doll. However, hearing strange noises from a bus stop with a life-size chucky doll jumping out on you is quite a different story. Check out this fun promotional video for the film Curse of Chucky, which is exactly what happens.
+ It’s Ronald McDonald! No wait …
As much as IT is nowhere near the scariest movie you’ll ever see, it’s doubtful that anyone would want to go to a movie theater to watch the movie and go into an IT replica when they come around a corner. When IT was released in Bolivia’s Prime Cinemas, management found it fun to promote the film by having an employee dress up as a creepy clown and startle the daylight of people entering the theater. While the clown’s makeup is questionable and he looks more like Michael Myers went wrong, he’s terrified. However, some people are not easily scared.
++ The food strikes back
To promote the R-Rated animation comedy Sausage Party, Seth Rogen decided to freak out some people by putting animatronic groceries in a supermarket. Rogen then spoke over the microphone behind the scenes to bring the objects to life. Some of the groceries felt the need to let off some steam with a few swearwords, while others made customers feel guilty by asking if they were there to eat their friends and family. Not everyone was afraid of the food, which included a loaf of bread, a melon, and of course a smoked sausage. Watch the video to see how a man reacts to the bread that talks to him.
