Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) survives the seventh day after seeing the videotape, NOT because she found the remains of the young girl on the tape, but because she made a copy of the tape and showed it to another person. Samara (Daveigh Chase), the girl on the tape, had the intention of putting as many people as she could through the suffering that she had experienced, so the only way to survive her 'curse' is help spread it.
Thanks, John A!
