    They were not able to include it in the original cut of the film because they did not have the technology to hide the cables that held her up (according to what I heard or read). By the time of the second cut of the film, the technology had evolved.
    Then I would advise you to keep away from the last scene in Ring 0
    I still can picture Sadako and it's even more eerie than Ringu and Ring 2

      Sh*t yeah son, we have joints just like in North Georgia. I take my writing accesories up there usually three time a year for about a week or so, to chill out and write and fish. And once you get to where the air actually smells clean....you'll see GASOLINE & FRIED CHICKEN and GASOLINE & BAR-B-QUE as far as the eye can see. The kind of southerners than run these joints are the kind of Southerners who don't take kindly to city folk making fun of the establishment or their accent. I get gas and get the hell on whenever I stop. Haha.

      There's even a couple of gas stations that are closed down where they're still advertising $1.04 for unleaded gasoline.

      These secluded, shut-down places are primo filming locales.

        I loved Frailty, but it didn't scare me in that way. Not even close.

        I'm serious when I say this...The Shining mentally disturbed me so much from the first time I saw it, I couldn't even watch Twister because of the scene where they show the twins on TV.

        The only reason I'm probably able to watch it and enjoy it today is because I saw other Kubrick films and realized how great of a director he was. Now I don't see it as a scary movie, I see it as a great movie.

          Yep, I saw the re-cut version when they brought it back to the big screen several years ago. I slept with the light on for three nights. I was so freaked out, I couldn't help but look up from bed every five seconds, horrified that Linda Blair would be standing there.

          According to an interview with Blatty, he said that back in his college days, he saw an article about an excorsim in the Carolina's or somewhere around there. He cut it out, put it away, then researched the article years later. Interviewed the priests involved, everything. They swore it was true, to what extent, who knows.

          But when it came time for Blatty to give a draft of the screenplay to Friedken, it was a bunch of flashbacks.

          And Friedken's like, no just give me the story.
