Three interwoven stories about a terrible curse. A young woman encounters a malevolent supernatural force while searching for her missing sister in Tokyo; a mean high school prank goes horribly wrong; a woman with a deadly secret moves into a Chicago apartment building.
A high school student named Jake tries to make his girlfriend Emily watch a cursed tape. But then Jake finds out that Emily covered her eyes and didn't watch the tape, and then Jake is killed by Samara Morgan (from the first The Ring movie). Rachel Keller learns of Jake's death and finds his twisted body in the back of an ambulance. Rachel then realizes she once again has to save her son Aidan from Samara the evil ghost child.Written by

Stuntwoman Bonnie Morgan briefly played Samara in the well-crawling sequence in an uncredited role. She would go on to reprise the role in the sequel Rings (2017). See more »
When Rachel makes sandwiches for herself and Samara/Aidan, the camera focuses briefly on the bottle of pills. The name on the bottle clearly reads "...entura, Tony." There is no character named "Tony" in the film; however, the crew's property master is named Tony Bonaventura. See more »
Ever seen a shooting star?
You know what you're supposed to do, right?
What do you mean, make a wish?
If you saw one right now, what would you wish for?
Well, that's a secret.

Similar to the previous movie, there are no opening credits besides the Dreamworks logo. See more »
There are two slightly different versions of the Region 1 widescreen unrated DVD. One has rougher sound and poorer video quality during the additional scenes, with a few unfinished effects (the viewfinder on Aiden's camera). Some of the music cues are different as well. It also has a different version of the "bobbing for apples" scene, in which Aiden has a vision of his own head underwater. The only apparent difference in packaging is that this version does NOT have the letters "FR" after the catalog number (which is, in both versions, 94433). See more »
Following similar to former film but with no surprises
Afterwards of horrible occurrence from previous film,the journalist Rachel Keller(Naomi watts) and his son Aidan(Dorfman)move another location.Whenever a teenager spontaneously dies with a horrifying look on his face after of hearing a supposedly killing videotape and one time the phone rings ,telling he had only one week to live .The reporter shows up to investigate these deeds.Mother and son helped by another journalist(Simon Baker) race to save their lives from spooky creature.Rachel tries to get the bottom of mystery and discovers the secrets of life of Samara Morgan and her mommy Anna Morgan(Sissy Spacek).Besides mysterious events are happening into the house and both are caught up by ominous Samara.
This sequel provides great load of screams,grisly murders and creepy atmosphere which becomes pretty sinister with the Samara appearing. The picture is a sleek production with big budget and genuine chills,suspense,tension,shocks and lots of blood,it's a terror-thriller very exciting.The film is narrated with intelligent edition,special use of colour and slick utilization of shock images.Movie has a plethora of special effects describing series of weird and otherwordly happenings and a magnificent make-up by the master Rick Baker specially reflected on the hair-raising countenance of dead. However the surprises from original film have disappeared and results to be an inferior sequel.The eerie musical score is by the excellent Hans Zimmer. The motion picture is correctly directed by Hideo Nakata who made the original Japan version. The flick will like to terror cinema fans.
