Totally totally lame. Although the big "chase" sequence at the end is great, The Ring Two isn't scary at all (which is a shock because the director, Hideo Nakata, directed the original Ringu! How is this not scary?!?!). The deer sequence is hilarious.

Its been a little while since i had a "Horror" flick spook me. Well good job! I actually was creeped out a bit on this one. I don't recall the first one creeping me out as much as this one had.

The Ring Two had some good scenes, but overall the (unwanted) new plot twists, predictable ending, and the overall stupidity of the movie make it seem pretty bad. 34/100

Taking the conventional route of a horror sequel, The Ring Two is predictable and formulaic. Samara is back, but this time she's looking to possess Rachel's son; meanwhile Rachel investigates Samara's origins, trying to discover a way to stop her. Naomi Watts returns and is joined by Simon Baker, Sissy Spacek, and Emily VanCamp. But once again the weak link is the child actor playing Watt's son, only the problem is worsened by the increased focus on his character. And the writing is especially poor, playing on a lot of stereotypes and cliches, and not really explaining why things happen. However, the director does a good job at creating haunting imagery and at drawing out suspense. Unfortunately, The Ring Two is a rote and uninspired film that fails to recapture the terror of the original.

While the first one was creepy and disturbing, this one just sucks. This is yet another horror sequel that fails to be as good as its predecessor and is only a sad attempt at trying to make some cash. There were lots of plot holes and a lot of things that made no sense and I couldn't find a single good thing about this stupid movie. The pacing was really slow and there was a lot of boring uninteresting moments, I didn't care about a single person on screen, the acting was one-note, and worst of all, it was not scary at all. There was a stupid as hell scene where there were deer attacking a car and the cgi in that scene was absolutely horrendous. Overall, there is nothing about this film that is worth talking about at all and it should just be avoided.

The Ring two may not be the most confidently directed horror/ mystery film, but after watching this film expecting nothing but the worst, I feel that it's not so bad after all. The Ring 2 provides more story into the series and it's a bit more convincing and offbeat than the original film. Here a supernatural gods and demons kind of plot line is chosen for the film. It tries to do too many things at once and now I get from where Insidious got it's famous photograph horror scene from. Towards then ending it wears off, but still it provides an above average ending. Like it's original, the film also has good cinematography, but the special effects are not too good. The film also deals with possession, but fails to show how it takes place.

Of all the American remakes churned out during the Japanese horror film fad back in the early to mid-2000s, there were a few standouts and much more duds. A leader among the duds was 2005's 'The Ring Two' - the follow-up to the successful film that started the trend in 2002. Leaving behind director Gore Verbinski for Hideo Nakata, 'Ring' follows the lives of journalist Rachel Keller (reprised by Naomi Watts) and her young son Aidan (David Dorfman) after trying to start fresh in a small seaside town, only to be tracked down by the killer videotape and its inhabitant, Samara. As you can imagine, 'Ring' tries to capture a lot of the uniqueness of its predecessor, but it fails pretty miserably, coming off as stale and tired. The plot is fairly cookie-cutter and the "thrills" are really not the least bit scary, which marks a major departure from the original film. As usual, the main focus is on the two protagonists, but there are also a few minor appearances from supporting cast, including Simon Baker as the editor of the local small-town newspaper and Sissy Spacek as Samara's crazed birthmother. This supporting cast really does nothing to enhance the value of 'Ring,' and they are pretty expendable in the grand scheme of things. It should also be noted there is one scene in particular that is due to particularly poor CGI. Of the film's highlights, the ominous soundtrack is also borrowed from the original film, which is good but nothing special. That pretty much sums up 'The Ring Two' as it is - a cheap knock-off of an actually good film that got caught up in trying to strike lightning twice.

Naomie Watts is still an amazing actress. And there's some creepy moments in the film (the bathroom scene). But with a confusing plot, "The RIng Two" is a unneccesary sequel of the first movie. Just a gulty pleasure only made for fans.

A good film with a unique storyline, however not as interesting as the first one, as it's harder to understand the storyline.

There's something about The Ring Two which is surprisingly good. It doesn't follow the storyline of the original Japanese film but instead is a standalone sequel. While the scares are few and far between the movie works as a more efficient thriller with supernatural overtones. The central premise of a ghost wanting to live a normal life with a mum of her own is surprisingly touching, even if it's also incredibly creepy - but does lead to the best line (and best closing moment) of any horror film, especially for a sequel.

Just a copy of the first not scary but it is interesting and intense

Really don't even see why this movie exists. One scary scene near the end and that was it.
