Most contemporary horror movies depend upon a series of sudden jolts, executed with the finesse of a cattle-prod, to keep their audiences awake.The Ring Twooffers something far more interesting: A slow but relentless creepiness that might just linger in your mind when the movie is over. A few months after the events of the firstRing, journalist Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts,Mulholland Drive) and her son Aidan (David Dorfman,A Wrinkle in Time) have fled to a small town on the Oregon coast to get over their awful experience with a cursed videotape. Of course, a copy of the videotape finds its way there, and soon the troubled spirit of a girl with long, face-obscuring black hair is worming her way into Rachel and Aidan's lives by worming her way into Aidan's flesh. As a story with a coherent beginning, middle, and end,The Ring Twois full of holes; but as a series of surreal and evocative images accumulating into a dislocating sense of dread,The Ring Twoholds up. In fact, at one point the movie becomes so dreamlike in its flow that it verges on avant-garde. The source of this alluring eeriness is the director, Hideo Nakata, who directed the JapaneseRingu, on whichThe Ringwas based. Also featuring Gary Cole (Office Space) and Sissy Spacek (Carrie).--Bret Fetzer
It's OK The sequel to the Ring was ok, but nothing to brag about. I hope they just stop now. If they do make a third installment they need to let John Carpenter Direct it and have the plot based on some cynical reporter who doubts the mythical power of the mythical video tape decides to play it on national tv on a news show. Naoomi Watts desperately tries to stop the tape from being played, after she escapes from an insane asylum only to be too late. The movie ends with people turning on their TV sets around only to view the Samara Tape. But I would be just as happy if they left it alone. And please hollywood don't touch Spiralboring sequel to a good first version. I don't understand why they insisted in making this american version of ringu 2 so different from the japanese movie and so different from the original book.What was Hideo Nakata thinking? he did a good job in the japanese Ringu series but here he messed up. Samara wants a mom??? come on that is plain out ridiculous. The deer scene was way over the top, and surely taken from the safari park scene from The Omen. Sissy Spacek is a great actress, but why does she have such a small role in the movie???The movie was boring and didn't have any scary moments. they over did the special effects and they changed the orginal story so much that it lost its essence....
