Just saw the movie, and I have a question...
If you make a copy, and give it to someone else, and that person does not make a copy and they die, are you next in line to die? Or are you off the hook because you spread it once? Or do you have to keep spreading it? I'm a little confused. I hope my question makes sense :)

What if....
...you're supposed to croak in seven days, but on day three you inadvertently step in front of a bus (before having made a copy) and you short change Samara by your untimely death. Does the person who gave the premature croakee the tape owe Samara another life - perhaps their own?

That's an interesting question. You would not die, because you had already helped. You have to make a copy, and show it to someone, and then you're basically off the hook, except that you will probably keep having creepy visions and whatnot, and you have done a really rotten thing to someone else (bad karma).

samara desires to have all human kind either dead or bound to her. She is a controlling biatch!!!

That's what InfluxDatum claims but that may be only partially right

partially right...how so?
Facts:

1. Anyone who has watched the tape will die after the 7th day. However...

2. Samara will only spare a life if the individual copies and shows the tape to someone. This is fact coming from Ringu and The Ring (remake). She still affects those who she spares. Even after Rachel copied and showed it to Noah, she continued to experience samara.

In summary, she seeks to spread her influence to mankind. In doing so, bound, haunt, and torment all human beings. 'Take someone else's tragedy and force the world to experience it'. If that's not possible, they should watch the tape and die.

Those who 'live' are truly the ones who have never watched the tape.
