Spooky find on accident!
I dunno if this has been posted before, but here it goes anyway. Before my Kazaa totally wiped out, I was trying to get a screenshot of Rachel falling into the well. I paused it a second too soon, and managed to find this incredibly haunting image. For a split second, the TV that knocked Rachel in the well wasn't static--it was this:

Again, sorry if its been posted before, but I just think this is so cool! *squeel*

Alex:Well, I found this really disturbing video tape, and I decided to alter it some. It's really pretty now!

Re: Spooky find on accident!
OOOOeeeOOooo.

How odd. I bet you're the first person to see that ;)

The more I look at it, it looks like Samara (?) is looking into the well...

Cool image! It's reminiscent of this one of Anna looking down the well: pub70.ezboard.com/ftherin...ic&index=8

how interesting
Samara has a black dress on instead of a white dress. Aiden could have seen pictures of this Samara, the evil kind, and drawn her flying and stuff. So maybe the girl with the black dress in the Aiden pictures is Samara.


back to the OP, that's actually very very sweet.

Re: how interesting
I won't jump to conclusions. While it may be Samara, it's not for sure. Also, the whole figure is in silhouette, so we can't be sure about the dress color.

There's a picture from Ringu on Ring World that is also reminiscent of this shot - and is quite possibly the idea from which this image (and the one of Anna above) was lifted: ringworld.somrux.com/ikumasWell.htm

Re: how interesting
I've been thinking about this shot for a while

*I don't think it's Anna, because the person has on a short-sleeved dress, which is like the white one Samara wore. It's shadowy, so she could very well be wearing white.

*Like I said, it looks like Samara looking into the well, but at a certain angle...it kind of reminded me of Samara walking towards the edge of the TV screen.

Yep, that's Sammie alright. Anna had a creepy updo when she gave Samara the unwanted kitten treatment.

Hmm, Samara makes you into her, she becomes Anna??

Think of the outline of Samara's face in the plastic bag (on the cursed video) and then (if you can) think of the faces of Noah and Katie-same look.

Hmmm. *brain beginning to smoke from overload*

Rachel - any ideas what the syringes mean? If you haven't speculated on this yet, please take a few stabs (npi) - it may help to trigger some thoughts. Thanks.

Ohh, yeah. That is so cool. I also agree that your backround story about landing on it by accident is also very cool, too.

It's related to this question by Dr. Scott on Ring Web Site thread: pub70.ezboard.com/ftherin...ic&index=4

syringes
Yeah, some of the Xrays that Samara made (with her mind?) had syringes on them. I know this is shown at the official website, but I'm not sure if the doctor holds up a picture with syringes on it in the movie. Remember when he's asking her "how did you make these pictures?"

Anyway, I think the syringes refer to Samara's sedation in the institution.

syringes
Do you think it could also refer to the way Sadako was medicated and poisoned in Ring 0?

Re: syringes
It could...except for the fact that The Ring with Samara Morgan and Ring with Sadako Yamamura are two different stories.

Re: x-ray film
Anybody notice that one of the film plates showing pictures of some lizard-like creatures is strangely reminiscent of some actual primitive cave drawings that I could swear that I've seen in a book or documentary previously?

lizards
I noticed the lizard creatures too. they kinda look like (but probably have nothing to do with) the designs on Aidan's bedspread & pajama's. ??

Well
I was under the impression that the creators of the ring did not see the sequels or prequel to the ring. I also noticed the lizards but Im not sure about the pajamas on Aidan.

Re: Well
someone had to see at least a snippet of ring 2, otherwise the tv/partition scene in the looney bin would be one hell of a coincidence ;p

Syringes
Could the syringes also be in reference to the drugs Anna may have injected herself with? If you read through the official site-Anna's specific problem was "incompetent cervix" which means she would conceive a healthy baby, but then lose the baby before it came to term.

If she was taking drugs to counteract that problem it would be during the pregnancy, not before it. Samara could have "known" about the injections and also that they somehow had made her what she is.

Just thinking "out loud"

Syringes
The injection wouldn't be in the cervix. It's usually progestin injections, but in Anna's case, some mystery cocktail.... fertility injections are usually in the abdomen or hip. Like Barbie.

'nother photo
Has anyone seen this one? I haven't seen it discussed.

image1ex.villagephotos.com/pubimage.asp?id_=1166645

It's one of those pictures that Samara made. It shows that Samara associates Anna with combing hair (like someone else said before). I think it shows the tree from Shelter Mountain too :\

Re: 'nother photo
Very Quewl. Maybe it's the time of year, but the wavey outline around the figure reminds me of a christmas tree - especially with those ball 'decoration' thingies. Wouldn't it be trippy if in March of next year the outline changed to look like an easter bunny?

Re: 'nother photo
I think the doll-like thing in that picture looks like Anna...and there's a comb next to her head. = Anna looking in the mirror brushing her hair. But whats with the skeletal hand in the background? *brain ish frazzled*:x
