(at around 21 mins) Grace Zabriskie had only one line in the entire film as her mute character Emma, "I just want her to leave me alone," which refers to Kayako. See more »
(at around 59 mins) When Karen is looking up information about Toshio on the internet, the search engine option "images" on The Daily News Japan website is spelled "imaegs". Also, "option" is supposed to be capitalized like "View", "Tool", and "Help" are. "Tool" is also meant to be "Tools". See more »

Two slightly different versions of the film were used for test screenings. One was R-rated, while the other was rated PG-13. The PG-13 cut, which had toned down some of the disturbing images, tested better with screeners. See more »
so, being a fairly deep fan of horror movies, it's been a while since i've seen one that really made me jump (or fidget nervously.)
definitely going to get this on DVD when it comes out... a hell of a lot better than the ring. the thing that i don't get is that so many people that we talkd with after the movie thought that it was horrible, well, if that's what you think, then so be it... i know what i liked and it takes a fair amount to get me to actually feel scared, so i have to say that this one is worth watching.
now, you might be disappointed in the story if you need everything in a neat and tidy line, because the plot goes back an forth a little bit to help build the story (i think that if it was shown in chronological order, it would have ruined the whole thing.)
i'm actually glad that this movie had very little bloody messes in it... maybe the rest of you studio writers and whathaveyous will realize that you don't have to splash the red stuff all over the set to make people afraid.
