Movie Info

Hideo Nakata follows up on the phenomenal success of Ringu -- the highest grossing Japanese film up to that point -- with this effort. In the previous film, Reiko (Nanako Matsushima) was a television reporter doing a piece on a videotape that seemed to kill those who watched it. Not long after learning that the cause of the killing was a vengeful spirit named Sadako who inhabited the video, Reiko's researcher ex-husband (Hiroyuki Sanada) died a painful death, and the fate of Reiko's son, Yoichi

NB: This review is not for the Hideo Nakata film, but for the American remake starring Naomi Watts from the same year.

All the cool stuff is at the very end, but until then...a bunch of new characters figure out all the same stuff that was already deduced in the first film.

Confuso, entediante e nada assustador, o filme destri o interessante mito criado no original.

Audience Reviews for Ringu 2 (Ring 2)

This sequel out-does it's predecessor IMO. It injected a bit more life into it without losing the creepy atmosphere or scare-appeal. It continues on with the story of the evil Sadako very well and adds more thrills and chills.

Well this time around the filmmakers got it right. 'Ringu 2' (1999) is now the true sequel to the 1998 original, forget 'Rasen' (1998). This time around we see Mai Takano and the powers that be go of to look for the answers to the cursed video and to find Reiko and Yoichi only to find that Yoichi has developed Sadako's telekinetic powers and is in-fact becoming the demonic girl. This is the way they should have went in the first pace. 'Ringu 2' blows 'Rasen' out of the water and runs rings around 'Ringu'. T liked the original but found the suspense lacking and the film-making a nit bland, in this film however Hideo Nakata (who also helmed the original) gives the visuals a much needed kick and the atmosphere so much needed zing. The story is a lot more interesting and the acting gives the film a bit of a haunting feel.

Ouch. It's hard to explain how wrong this movie goes. It starts off great, but spirals into a complete mess by the end, raising more questions than it answers.

Always intriguing, with a few nerve jangling moments, but again I found myself waiting for a pay-off that never materialized.
