Hi peoplz. I'm an amateur video producer and totally new to this forum, so if I sound like a newb, it's probably because I am. I'm currently working on a video project that involves a lot of fancy visual effects. My goal is to make a short video - about 1 to 2 and a half minutes long - that has the same or similar visual effects as those found in the Ring and the Ring Two's 'cursed' videotapes. I mean effects like funky film grain, shaky picture, staticy stuff, odd blue-greenish colorization, that sort of thing. Here's some links to the videos, just to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about. (If you're easily rattled by creepy gross stuff, be warned, it's a little messy, but it's not horrifying. Sorry, I thought it would just be a link, I didn't think it would plug in the actual Youtube video frame thingy.)

Does anyone know of some video editing software that can create visual effects like these? Like Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, something to that effect. I've heard that super8mm cameras can produce similar effects, but I don't want to run out and get one and then buy a bunch of fancy equipment for it. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
