scenes re-shot: What does everyone make of it?
"There was a scene shot in Squim, Wa. that the studio wanted to change. Also they wanted a tamer version of a scene in the Morgan House, as well as some inserts. The scenes were shot at Malibou Lake near L.A. The [buzz] is that the movie is real good and the studio exec's love it."

Im getting worried. 'Remakes of scenes' to make Studio Execs happy = Bad?

A tamer version? Looks like there's something to look forward to on the DVD...

The quote above is part of an e-mail conversation from someone involved with the remake. Apparently the re-shoots were consentual and the inserts were to make the story "flow" better.

J... Please... Track down the script for the remake...

Heh. Ask me again on October 18th :) .

But in any case if the American version seems tamer then Japanese version it is precisely because of what someone else said in that they really didn't want concerned parents or teachers or bible salesman to call this movie satanic or such. No mention or suggestion of demonic origens of Samara in this version of the movie no siree. Bible saleman were after Pokemon and Harry Potter for instance. Gee it doesn't take much to tick them.

I'm guessing that, in the original version, Richard Morgan's suicide was far more graphic than what we saw.

That it was. And while on the subject

[CRAZY SPOILERS TO FOLLOW]







The scene where Anna offs Samara was insanely graphic. Even with the plastic over her face Samara wouldn't die, so Anna picks up a rock and bashes her daughter over and over. There was also supposed to be a shot where she lugs Samara's body over the lip of the well, and it smacks into the side of it on the way down.

Sounds pretty tasty. I suspected that Samara had a nastier surprise coming. I hope the DVD is packed.

That scene sounds pretty sweet.

It would follows with the whole 'Samara is scary' theme.

I'd like to see it go like this...

Anna:D ie dammit!
Samara:You can't kill me I'm EEEEVIL and a trademark!!
Anna:*whaps her with giant rock a couple of times*
Samara: Can't kill me I'-*silent*

Thanks!!
There was a weird sort of animated image on the official site. It looked like a face behind cloth.

It was probably Samara struggling against the plastic bag.
