THIS is the moment James Williams' girlfriend thought she was face-to-face with Samara from The Ring.

In reality it was a paper mache puppet being controlled by her boyfriend.

James spent weeks setting up the prank, and filmed it from three different angles using two phones and a camcorder. To make it seem more realistic, he told her a few days before the prank that he'd seen a ghost at the end of their bed.

On the video, he wrote: "I wanted to see how my girlfriend would react to a ghost coming out of the TV trying to grab hold of her."
