Video equipement in bathroom
I Just saw The Ring last night. Exellent horror flick and I'm glad I found this site as it helps to explain the movie in a little more detail.
I just have 1 question. Was that a heap of professional video equipement in Richard Morgan's bathroom when he kills himself? If so what was he doing with all that? Did he make a bunch of copies of the tape? Was he just obsessed with the video and wanted to find out more about it?

Re: Video equipement in bathroom
I think he just started putting it all in the bathroom the second after Rachel left the first time because he knew that Samara really would not stop. He was just heading up to kill himself when he found Rachel watching Samara's interview tape thingy. Of course, thats just my thoughts on it.

WOW, Samara is messed up.....SHE'S MY ROLE MODEL!

Beacause he was a damn freak....and so was Rachel, for that matter...Name one person who would stop and play a tape at someone house that they entered illegally.

ummmm.... Me. If my child was dieing and I needed answers, a tresspassing charge would seem rather minor in comparisson.

i can't recall who said it, but in another thread someone mentioned that the equipment is very similar to that of which that is used to electrocute farm animals like horses and cattle.

In addition to the video gear, he hung a pair of stirrups around his neck. I guess it was symbolic of his life with horses, kind of like a suicide note.

My goodness, I didn't think you had it in you. But seriously, is it possible that Samara was tormenting him all those years? I don't know. He looked pretty normal when Rachel approached him. I don't think he saw the cursed video, but then maybe Samara kept him alive on purpose.

Re: Richard Morgan's seeming earlier tranquility - for those interested, it's discussed fairly extensively on this thread: pub70.ezboard.com/ftherin...1043.topic

Re: Samara-ized
I don't know...if it were me, I would have taken the tape with me and played it someplace else. Trespessig is a good way to get your ass shot; he let her off easy with hitting her...but then again, she went there to talk to him again so maybe she was planning on playing it off if and when he did appear.

rachel is not a procrastinator and she had more balls than..
some men.
take the tape and watch it somewhere? where would she get a vcr in the damn island other than at richard's house? would not theft be as bad as tresspassing?

hey, that seems to answer another questions. Where was richard when rachel came back and he wasn't there? Maybe he was out of the house stealing people's vcrs to prevent samara from using one of them for evil. He just stacked them all in the bathroom and cabooom.

That's true. I always assumed that she rented a room or something while she was on the island where she could have played it.
