If you are looking for a good book to read. I recommend this one. 
This entire book was written by a man whose stroke plunged him into a 21 day coma. He awakened to find himself fully paralyzed except for one eye and a part of his head. He survived an entire month, enough to publish an entire book. 
How did he do this?
He dictated his book one character at a time by blinking his left eyelid while an assistant recited letters. 
200,000 blinks tells his entire story. He died 3 days after the book was published due to pneumonia. 

holy shit

People are amazing
There is also a movie about this

The Ring: Cursed Video Tape

According to the plot anyone who watches the tape is cursed and has a week to copy the tape and show it to someone else, otherwise they will be killed by Samara’s ghost.

The tape’s images are a playback on Samara’s life. Samara was pushed down a well by her adoptive mother, Anna Morgan,spending seven days trying to escape but died on the seventh, using her nensha powers (the power to burn photographic images from ones mind to a film tape) to make the tape, out of vengeance and a desire to be found.

This movie was truly iconic.

And if you missed or want to watch it again, here you go
