The girl named Samara ver. 2

Sorry to TARA and GEN for the scary picture before. :)


She makes up your nightmares. She calls you up to say you will die after 7 days. She has the ability to go out the t.v. screen. She contorts when she climbs walls. And of course, her "home video" is "killer" (pardon the pun). Her name is Samara, a very very disturbed girl.

I finally watched the second installment of her first movie after days of hesitation. And to tell you the truth, it wasn't the epitome of fear, but it was more of a psychological thriller. And the good thing about the movie was the fact that it gave us a clearer understanding of who Samara was. And even more, it showed her in a side that movie buffs would think impossible: her yearning for love

Okay, so we all know that she kills, but now, we know WHY she kills. And after I watched it, I developed a newfound sense of pity for Samara. I mean, the cause of her actions is because of being abandoned to die. She was left in the hands of her foster parents (who killed themsleves) and to make things worse, her foster mom went crazy, killed her and threw her inside a well.

I guess, if we take a look at it more closely, Samara hasn't been given an ounce of love by her real mother and her foster parents. And I think that made her a bitter, lonely and demented child whose attitude has been magnified since she was murdered and left alone inside the well. With all the anger, loneliness, resentment and hate building up, I couldn't blame her for being that way.

She needed love. And Samara was just a "magnified personification" of all the children out there who are left in the streets, aborted, and left alone. And it was too bad no one ever treated her with love when she was alive. ( And she was really pitiful when she called Rachel "Mommy!" and all Rachel could say was "I'm not your f***ing mommy!, then she closes the opening of the well. Cue: the sound of Samara falling down into the water..again)


Think about it, people abandon children everyday, then we would just be contributing to the number of Samaras we have in this world. We wouldn't want that, would we?

first impressions last.
and since your first impression on me was the image of that wretched remaked movie, needless to say, i did not take much to reading your entry. i dont like anything remotely creepy, so, sorry to say i didn't read much, though i gather that it somewhat is a definitive justification of samara's "peculiar" habit.

ps: lipat ka na ng tabs! oh, and thanks for visiting my blog. i don't update it often though, college keeps people busy.:D

"She has the ability to go out of the t.v. screen..." that line was funny :P

The actress who plays her is in the new movie Silent Hill (which I've been dying to watch).
