    This is also why one should not Break the Cutie lest it become Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds.

    The same thing happens there except when the deaths continue, the one girl who survived put two and two together and realized that what saved her from death was that she copied the tape and sent it to somebody.

    Edit: this is true in the remake as well, now that I remember.
    Yeah, but I don't consider that reasonable or forgiving. That's still a reign of terror -- to have your pnly refuge be to place others in the role of potential victim, it just expands her victim base, potentially.

    Nah. I think she would just want connection in the form of sharing her pain. Yeah, somebody dug her up and hugged her bones, but really she wasn't there - she was still alone.

    I don't think the tapes would have been a cry for help. It's not exactly forcing anyone into anything until they watch the tape, and if they brush off her feelings contained therein by ignoring it, it's then that she becomes angry and kills the person.

    I always wondered if two people were stuck in the situation anyways--couldn't they just set up something so that they send each other the tape back and forth? Or did it have to be a different person? Did it only save you once to do that, or every time you did it? It was all really vague with the conditions and standards.

    Anyways, while I am too broke to see this movie right now, I am looking forward to it being at the showboat drive-in theater since I get in that one for free

    Looked like another generic and cliche neo-horror film from the trailers I've seen. The name makes me laugh too. Won't be seeing.

    Well, isn't that how the Asian films kind of work? Great imagery, not so great with logic. The American version is also very imagery and ambiance focused, not as much on what makes sense. (Not that American horror flicks have a lot of sensibility at times either.)

    I think since she could watch the film multiple times, but there was only one death sentence, that you could only really copy the film once. Once you copied the film, you were good to go.

    So what happens if you copy the film without having watched it? Do you get some kind of buku supernatural privileges or something, like a "get out of jail free card" to spend elsewhere?

    Wouldn't that be awesome?! It'd be like a summoning sequence from final fantasy, only scary.
