Question: Why does Aiden call Rachel by her first name?

apple

Chosen answer: He's a very independent child. Notice how he dressed himself (including tie) AND laid out his mother's outfit. Some children call their parents by their first names to exert their independence.

Question: How was Samara able to see her mother jump off of the cliff and secure that image on the tape if she was killed before her mom committed suicide?

apple

Chosen answer: One may as well ask, how did she manage to secure any of the odd images on the tape? Her spirit lived on, up to and beyond her mother's suicide, even though she had died. It was the power of her evil/angry spirit that created the tape and all its imagery.

Question: In one scene string came out of Rachel's mouth, which I know was related to the tape, but what is the deal with the string coming out of someone's mouth on the tape, and who was that supposed to be? Did Samara swallow the string?

Chosen answer: It wasn't actually string; it was the cable from the electrodes which were placed on Samara when she was in the hospital. When Noah is in the hospital looking for the tape there is a shot of him looking at a set of electrodes and realising their relevance.

Continuity mistake: In the first dinner scene when the young boy is coughing at the table his body is obviously moving alot because he's suppossed to be choking. Then when the scene begins to end, the camera shows him from the back and you can still HEAR him coughing, but he's sitting at the table calmly as if nothing is wrong.

Factual error: At the end when Kate Winslet receives the Fed Ex box she opens it easily from the end. Fed Ex boxes have pull tabs that you pull to open, and if you decide you want to open the box at the end it is not as easy as she made it look.
