- To avoid being banned the original UK cinema version was cut to completely remove the knife fight.
The role of Rachel was first offered to Jennifer Connelly. The script was then offered to Gwyneth Paltrow, and then to Kate Beckinsale, and finally Naomi Watts.
Chris Cooper was supposed to be featured in a small role as a child murderer. Though his scenes were allegedly filmed and his name was included in early promotional materials (and on the film's official website) he's nowhere to be seen in the final theatrical cut.
Subliminal frames from the Ring video are inserted in the film. For example, the 'Ring' image can be glimpsed for a fraction of a second in the transition between the ferry/horse sequence and Rachel's car drive to Anna Morgan's farm on Moesko Island.
The other videos on the shelf where Rachel finds the Ring video are: Shattered (1991), Scent of a Woman (1992), Spontaneous Combustion (1990), Il mondo di Yor (1983), Sodom and Gomorrah (1962), The Looking Glass War (1969), Visions of a New World (1995) (V), Family Plot (1976), Steel Magnolias (1989), The Man from Snowy River (1982) and School Ties (1992).
