Directed by Hideo Nakata
Picking up where its predecessor left off, RING 2 finds Mai (Miki Nakatani) on the trail of the missing Reiko, Ring's heroine, following a string of deaths in which she appears to be implicated. Teaming up with one of Reiko's former colleagues, Mai delves ever deeper into urban legend surrounding the cursed videotape... and soon finds herself incurring the wrath of Sadako's vengeful spirit.
One year after the success of his horror classic Ring, director Hideo Nakata returned to the world of viral video to deliver his own follow-up.
Cast: Miki Nakatani, Hitomi Sato
it was okay,in the minority on this one but the american remake was far better than the original.this was a better sequel than the 2005 sequel but it was way too slow in some parts.some genuinely creepy moments though ill give it props for that(when the reporter is trying to erase the video footage of the dead girl was the standout).Also enjoyed the peformances of the actors from the original,too had they killed off Reiko in a lame way that was sort of unnecessary and also the protagonist was significantly weaker than Reiko as well.The ending was good too so thats also a plus
Not quite as good as the first one. First half of the movie was good, but the second half started to lose it's momentum. With that said still a pretty good follow up.
Loved it!!... Really well done sequel...I liked this quite a bit better than Spiral (1998)... I think this was a really good second step into the Ring franchise, how it's not as simple as just destroying the video and all copies... Also, absolutely heartbroken for Sadako...
The second is as good as the first. I just wish Shudder could bless us with the whole Ju-on series lol.
