    No not some fetish but as in the film.

    Did I understand correctly that in order to not die, you must make a copy and show it to someone else.

    spot on, the US remake makes that more clear. The Jap original sort of decides that for itself and then just tells the audience almost as an afterthought right at the end.

    The part I didn't understand was why the kid said to his mum " You were'nt supposed to help her".

    Not quite sure what else might have happend if she didn't help.

    God I feel like I'm losing my powers of deduction here. :rolleyes: :suicide:

    yeh i see what you mean... but i guess she would have gone on to carry out the final death scene whether her body was discovered or not.
    I guess he meant that its probably not a good idea to help something that evil. That line kind of changed the audience's perception from the girl being an avenging spirit wanting for her plight to be discover to thinking that she was just plain nasty in the first place and that's why her 'parents' killed her to start with.

    up until that point the audience thinks its safe because the body has been discovered and the spirit pacified.

    I watched the american version last Thursday and really enjoyed it. Haven't had a chance to watch the original yet, but I've heard the ending is different.
    Anyone want to tell me how?
    At first I assumed it would have been the fact that a copy had to be made which gives breed to a freddy type number of sequels but judging by what's written above that's not it. So anyone want to let me know what if any plot changes there have been ?

    I have not seen the Jap version but my missus has and she said
    the boyfriend has some psychic powers in the Jap version.
    I don't know if that's right - can anyone confirm?

    But I was very impressed with (and scared by) the American version. :smashin:

    I seen both but only once each and from what I remember there isn't much in the way of plot differences (can't remember if the bf/hubby has any abilities in the jap version sorry).

    If you thought the US version was scary wait till you get to the end of the Jap version!!!

    Surely to beat the Ring, just do go near a phone or a TV on the 7th day. As the little girl comes out of a TV, just sit in the middle of an empty field.:D
