See Ringu 2 Instead
5 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have see Rimgu 2 (I have not seen for a while) few times before I even heard of this movie. I think Ringu 2 was okay movie, it wasn't bad but could be much better, i loved The Ringu

I Hoping this would be Improvement of Ringu 2 but once a again it was another let down.

Rasen (1998) Is The forgot ringu sequel, it came out almost at the same time as Ringu as( it sequel in book series as well,) it was huge flop and then a year later Ringu 2 came out!

now I know why it is know as the forgotten sequel , it wasn't really that good, it wasn't scary at all, it was just really bizarre and really dull.

This move was not scary at all, we don't see any one come out the TV set but we do see Sadako who just appears from no were next to person who seen the tape.

She looks just like normal human person who trying seduce the person who seen the tape.

I found this really forgettable! There is also TV show called Rasen as well based on Ringu series!
