The long-haired, VHS-loving, well-dwelling child ghoul who is responsible for most of my middle school nightmares doesn’t look so scary anymore.

Daveigh Chase, the actress who played the demonic Samara in The Ring, is getting buzz these days for her radically different look. Twelve at the time of the horror movie’s release, Chase is now 24 years old, with blond hair, chic style and a more welcoming demeanor overall.

Along with The Ring, the actress also had roles in Lilo & Stitch and Big Love. Fans who want more of Chase’s new look can see her in the upcoming movie American Romance and check out more photos from her Instagram below.
