Plot Summary

In this sequel to Ringu (1998), Mai Takano is trying to learn more about the death of her boyfriend, Ryuji. She soon hears stories about a videotape haunted by the spirit of a girl named Sadako, who died many years earlier. Supposedly, anyone watching the tape will die of fright exactly one week later. After some investigating, she learns that Ryuji's son, Youichi, is developing the same psychic powers that Sadako had when she was alive. Mai must now find some way to keep Yuuichi and herself from becoming Sadako's next victims. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher

Trivia Ringu (1998) and Rasen (1998) were shot back-to-back from the novels by Koji Suzuki and released in theaters as a double bill. After audiences hated The Spiral, Asmik Ace Entertainment hired the cast and crew of the original to make this replacement sequel. See more »
