Are there any plans for a Directors cut of that film? I thought the film was really well directed, with nice production design and a good score.... only the final death left a bit to be desired... I would definitley buy a R rated SE of the ring. Since the dvd that gets released is pretty bare bones (except that short film), do you think Dreamworks will release a SE later as it has been done with Almost Famouse and will be done for releases by other studios Vanilla Sky Punch drunk love from IMDB: Samara's line "Everyone will suffer" was cut out the film but can be heard in the previews. Several scenes were allegedly re-filmed at the last minute do to poor audience reaction at test screenings. These were: The bathtub suicide was much more graphic Samara's murder lasted longer in the original cut of the film and was much more brutal than what audiences saw in theatres. Originally, the plastic bag over Samara's head failed to subdue her, leading her killer to repeatedly strike her in the head with a large rock (which can be seen lying on the ground in some shots of the well). The rock only weakened Samara, and finally her killer resorted to slamming her head against the side of the well before dumping her in. In a commercial for the film, Katie is watching the television, and the scene from the video with Anna Morgan brushing her hair is playing. In same scene in the film however, the TV she is watching only has static. Some test screenings contained scenes at the beginning and end of the film involving a murderer played by Chris Cooper. The first scene involved the murderer approaching Rachel, asking her to help clear his name, claiming he is rehabilitated and no longer a threat to society. She knows he's lying and refuses. Then at the end of the movie, she pays him a visit and drops off a copy of the video. There was a canoe scene (that appeared in the teaser) 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. Visual effects supervisor Charles Gibson said in an interview that another sequence was "previsualized," but cut from the film. "It was an all-CG montage of the 'Ring' tape being created from a point of view inside the VCR. Some of that imagery sneaked its way into the trailer."
