Corrected entry: Samara's victims look different in this movie post mortem than in The Ring. Here, their faces are frozen in a rictus and generally look creeped-out. In The Ring they looked as though they had been left underwater for a few weeks. However, their appearance in this movie gels with Hideo Nakata's previous trilogy of Ringu films.
Corrected entry: When in the hospital, the psychiatrist kills herself and you see her arm fall when she drops the syringe. In the next shot (overhead) you can see her arms folded in her lap.
Corrected entry: During the final scene in the well, when Rachel is climbing up the wall to escape, we start seeing ominous bubbles floating to the surface in batches. Obviously this is a suspense technique to reveal the approach of Samara underwater. Since it has been revealed previously that Samara is ONLY a ghost, why would she be breathing oxygen if she isn't possessing a living human at this point? (01:36:10)
Corrected entry: As the movie ends, the camera pans out of Rachael's house. Keep watching the window as the camera moves. Just before you cannot see anymore of the inside of the house, the TV suddenly snaps back on with the infamous Ring static. A hint towards the 3rd movie.
Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, the kid kills the psychiatrist and escapes the hospital. He is home for many hours before the end of the movie. Someone would have noticed his disappearance from the hospital, and the dead body (an alarm should have gone off when he disconnected his monitoring devices). Within several hours of time he was home, the authorities would have arrived looking for him and/or the mother.
Corrected entry: When Rachel went to the Morgan house, the real estate agent said that they had moved all the furniture to the basement when preparing for the sale of the house. When Rachel goes down to the basement, she pushes a lot of cobwebs out of her way, which shouldn't have been there if a lot of furniture had recently been moved to the basement. It couldn't be that the real estate agent was lying about how long ago the stuff had been moved, because the timeframe from movie 1 to 2 isn't that great.DirrtyGrrl
Corrected entry: In the first movie Rachel was saved because she made a copy and then saved Aiden by getting him to make a copy. Why on earth then do now people die in the sequel unless they get someone else to also watch the copy? Even if in the first movie Rachel was unknowingly saved because she made Noah watch the tape, Aiden never got anybody else to watch the tape, he just made a copy, so going by Ring 2 rules, shouldn't he have died?
Corrected entry: In the scene where Max is killed by Samara, Max sets the camera for a time delay photo which we see the camera's red LED light flashing to signify this. Max sits down next to the Samara possessed Adrian and waits for the photo. The photo will prove that Adrian is possessed by Samara as referred to earlier in the movie. We see max dead in his vehicle yet we do not see the photo anywhere throughout the rest of the film. And the point of setting the camera on time delay shot is?
Corrected entry: Why should it matter if the top of the well has been left open? Samara has been 'contacting' people and killing them since the well lid was closed from day 1, hence the reason the movie is called 'The Ring' in the first place, which symbolises the ring shape of the closed well. It therefore doesn't make a difference if the well is open or not.
Corrected entry: If so many other mums have been coming to see Evelyn due to problems with their kids, obviously these mums would have to have seen the tape for them to track down Evelyn, and they would have had to do damn good detective work WITHIN 7 DAYS to get to Evelyn, or else they would die themselves. And as Samara is trying to possess Aidan it would mean she was unsuccessfully at possessing the other kids which means getting rid of her and the curse is easy if so many other mums have been through it.
Corrected entry: When Rachel talked to the real estate agent for the Morgan house he said they had just put the stuff left behind in the basement. When she walks into the basement there are a lot of cobwebs in the door way. The cobwebs made it look like no one had been down there for years, yet supposedly they had just moved the stuff.
