The Ring

Continuity mistake: When Aidan and Noah are talking in the car, outside of Katie's house, Aidan is coloring on a blue lap tray. When Rachael comes to get him out of the car a couple of minutes later the lap tray is now green. (00:51:25 - 00:53:10)

Amber Mac Craig

Continuity mistake: When Noah is at the supermarket buying cigarettes, he pulls out of his pocket a bunch of junk such as coins, trash, and an old pack of cigarettes and dumps it on the counter. In the next shot of the counter, all the junk is gone except for a coin, and the old pack of cigarettes.

Continuity mistake: On the way to Shelter Mountain Inn Rachel is seen driving along a lake. The water is to her right, and the forest to her left. A helicopter shot confirms that, but when we see the car from the front the forest is to her right. (00:20:45)

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Rachel gets dressed for the wake the black brassiere under her white undershirt is sometimes visible, sometimes not. (00:11:55)

NancyFelix

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the main character is in the library on the internet, she goes to a couple of websites. When the shot shows the URL up top, it is C:\windows98\mydocuments\etc.html. Instead of actually searching on the web they used a premade html page and accessed it from their computer.

Question: All Samara wanted was to be heard and she killed anyone who didn't make a copy and show to someone else. Obviously she was very capable of killing before Rachel and Noah found her body and found out what had happened to her. So why does Aidan say that it's bad that they found her? How does it matter since she could kill before too?

Answer: Correct. If anything, it made things worse for them since Samara mistook Rachel's quest to find out about her story (in order to save their lives) with genuine concern and care. That's the big reason why she takes over Aidan's body in The Ring 2 and becomes obsessed with Rachel being her new "mommy."

Answer: Aidan said to Rachel that they weren't supposed to *help* Samara. When she told him they had, he assumed that worse things were going to happen. He wasn't entirely wrong; the problem didn't go away, but Rachel finding Samara's body and learning the rest of her story didn't make things any worse. If anything it enabled her to understand why she escaped death.
