** Okazaki from the first two Japanese movies is played by Yûrei Yanagi, who appeared as Kobayashi in the first ''Film/JuOn'' film.
** [[Series/TheMentalist Patrick Jane]] plays the well intentioned Max Rourke.
** Well, ''The Ring'' had Brian "[[Film/{{Manhunter}} Hannibal Lektor]]" Cox and Jane Alexander.
** RetroactiveRecognition: Holy crap! Noah's new squeeze is [[Series/{{NCIS}} Abby!]]
** Creator/AmberTamblyn is the remake's first on-screen victim, and Creator/RachaelBella is her best friend.
** In the Japanese film, Sadako's father is ''Series/{{Kikaider}}''
** RetroactiveRecognition: [[Creator/EmilyVanCamp Emily]] [[Series/{{Revenge}} Thorne]][=/=][[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Agent]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier 13]] nearly gets tricked into watching the tape in the sequel.
** In ''Sadako 3D'', Series/KamenRiderKiva took a break from fighting Fangires to become the heroine's UnderstandingBoyfriend in avoiding the effects of a cursed video created by, oh, [[Series/KamenRiderKabuto Kamen Rider Sasword!]]
*** And said cursed video's creator is also [[Manga/GreatTeacherOnizuka Onizuka's old bosozoku friend]] and the [[TheDitz ditzy]] leader of the [[Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub Host Club!]]

Added DiffLines:

* SequelGap: Koji Suzuki took a hiatus from writing the series after the publication of the anthology novel ''Birthday'' in 1999. The next sequel, ''S'', wasn't published until ''13 years later'' in 2012, coinciding with its film adaptation, ''Sadako 3D''. This is reflected in-universe: the protagonist is 28-year-old Takanori Ando, whom we last known was a [[spoiler: [[BackFromTheDead resurrected]]]] 3-year-old boy in ''Spiral''.

** The creators of the American version also had plans to include an all-CG scene which takes place inside a VCR when the cursed videotape is created. This never went beyond pre-visualization.
