Continuity mistake: When Reiko is talking to her camera man in the office, she places her left hand on top of her organizer. Cut to a different angle but now she has her left hand on the side of the organizer.
Revealing mistake: Near the end (DVD), when Sadako comes out of the TV, you can see where her finger extensions have been placed (you can see the join between her real finger and the fake one). (01:22:50)
Yoichi Asakawa: You know what, Mother?
Reiko Asakawa: Yes?
Yoichi Asakawa: Tomo-chan watched the cursed video.
Trivia: The film is loosely based on an ongoing series of novels by Japanese author Koji Suzuki. While the film shares the basic premise of the novels, the details are vastly different. (Notably, the books feature heavy and increasing science-fiction overtones that are absent from the films.) The American remake, "The Ring," is based more directly on this film and its sequel "Ringu 2" than the novels.
Question: There is a scene in Sadako's video (ie. the death tape) which features some people crawling backwards. I have watched this film millions of times and cannot work out what it means. Does anyone know what it means or if relates to anything in the film? Does it even have a meaning?
