* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The original short story, ''Floating Water'', isn't entirely clear if there is a haunting at all, or if it is all in Yoshimi's mind - however, the ending suggests it is the latter. [[spoiler: The US remake, however, is much more [[MindScrew vague]].]]

* NeverTrustATrailer: While the American remake makes a point of differentiating itself from ''Film/TheRing'' and ''Film/TheGrudge'' by downplaying the overt horror elements of the original and becoming more of a character study / dramatic psychological thriller with a focus on paranoia and atmosphere over scares, the trailers used scenes not in the movie, misplaced dialogue, and quick-cut editing to represent it as a generic teen-horror shocker.

No point having the whole trope listing spoilered out, since the reader has to highlight it anyway to find out what you're talking about.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice / TakeMeInstead: Yoshimi chooses to stay - and die - with Mitsuko, in order to protect Ikuko. Dahlia does the same to protect Ceci, although whether there actually is a haunting or not is left open to interpretation.]]
