I saw the canoe scene, right now
Ok I was watching the TV suddenly the image of Samara appeared (the one of the hospital) I was scared to dead it really came of nowhere, it was just there, I was scared because exactly a week ago I went to see the movie.

Thanks to god it was a Tv Spot, but i realize that they quickly show Noah pulling off the canoe, and very very quickly a descomposed face on the canoe.

It was like all of those faces of the movie, it looked great, I really don't know why they put that scene, because I have see it here and it doesn't have that scene, I either knew that the distribuitor here has the scene.

Re: I saw the canoe scene, right now
This is from the new remake FAQ on ringworld: ringworld.somrux.com/faq2.htm

Q: Was there supposed to be a scene with a canoe?

A: This was another scene that was shot (and appeared in the trailer) but was cut from the finished film. In it, Noah returns to the rental cabins and pulls the canoe to shore. Inside the canoe he finds the body of the cabin manager, who had watched the tape but failed to make a copy.

Re: I saw the canoe scene, right now
Yes I know, I just want to comment that I saw it, but how does people know that it was the cabin manager?

It was aired in the US too?

Re: I saw the canoe scene, right now
I cannot remember how we deduced that it was the cabin manager but we did. That scene was only seen in the Trailer and a few commercial spots (if I remember correctly) for the movie, but not actually in the movie. They edited that scene out of the US release.

You say psycho like its a bad thing!

IIRC, it was J. himself who was privy to the information about the deleted scenes, and let us know on this forum.

Re: I saw the canoe scene, right now
I wonder if someone can get the screen shots of that scene...

canoe scene
I think I have an idea why they may have cut it. When Noah "meets" Samara, he is staring at the TV in disbelief. He's scared, for sure, but he's also fascinated, unsure of what exactly is happening (remember he thinks the curse is broken and everything is hunky-dory).

If he had actually seen someone who had died of Samarafication, and had some inkling of what was about to happen to him, you can rest assured he wouldn't have just sat there like a mook and waited for her. He would have been making frantic attempts to get away, smashing the TV, whatever, possibly leaving the apartment. We know that would have been futile, but it would also have been a pain in the neck to film, so they kept Noah in the dark about what was about to happen to him-for the sake of the story.

solution to noahs problem
you know what i would do, and what noah should have tried? when he sees the well pop up on the screen, quickly turn the tv onto its face, so the screen is facing straight at the floor. i mean, she'd just be stuck tapping on the floor. to be honest, it'd be pretty funny to see. demon girl from hell stuck up against the floor. and plus, what happens if the screen of the tv is too small for her to fit through? what if she gets stuck halfway out?

on a slightly more serious note, why is it that katie seemed to die just from the tv in her room showing the well, but for noah, samara has to climb out and attack him? with katie, it shows her walk in the room, see the tv, scream, flash to tv shot of well, then jump-cut-zoom onto katies disfigured death face. i suppose that is because they didn't want to give too much away right in the biginning, but it still seems like it would have made more sense just to not show her death face until the later flash of her in the closet. then it would fit with noahs.

or is the only reason samara climbs out of the tv for noah because they have released her from the well and now she just can? or am i looking to deeply into this?

on an even more unrelated note, did anyone else see becca in the mental hospital and first think it was samara? that's who she looked like. maybe thats intentional. i don't know. im done rambling.

Re: solution to noahs problem
I too approach it along those lines: Samara may have ogled Katie as well - it's just it was an effect they were saving for the Noah scene.

There's no "looking too deeply" in my book - the possibilties and levels are virtually limitless. Great, huh? ;)

Maybe Samara didn't come out of the TV until AFTER Rachel freed her from the well.

Re: !
Maybe; fact is, we don't really know (and we won't unless the sequel addresses it). One thing that one should consider, though, is that in the original Japanese movies, Sadako did come out of the TV to go after Tomoko, the "Katie" character. Not saying that it's what definitely happened in the remake, but it's a possibility that can't be ruled out, either.

Re: !
My thought on the matter is as follows. At the beginning of the movie, the first girl's death scene is cut short (to preserve mystery.) We see her reacting to the well on television, but she's at her door at the time. Later, when she's found dead, she's in her closet. Maybe Samara came out of the television and chased her into the closet before killing her.

By the way I'm new here. I saw the Ring over a week ago and I'm happy to say that I am still, to my knowledge, alive. Though, I must say I didn't sleep AT ALL the night after I saw it. :|
