Ever seen a shooting star?
Jake: Sure. You?
Emily: You know what you're supposed to do, right?

When Samara is climbing out of the well in some shots her hair is touching the side of the well, indicating that the actor was crawling along a horizontal surface.

There are two slightly different versions of the Region 1 widescreen unrated DVD. One has rougher sound and poorer video quality during the additional scenes, with a few unfinished effects (the viewfinder on Aiden's camera). Some of the music cues are different as well. It also has a different version of the "bobbing for apples" scene, in which Aiden has a vision of his own head underwater. The only apparent difference in packaging is that this version does NOT have the letters "FR" after the catalog number (which is, in both versions, 94433).
