Unlike many of 'The Ring' fans, I didn't find this part so horrible. I loved the first movie and being a teen, I was totally into 'The Ring 2' as well. I have to agree it doesn't match expectations that the original made us hope for, but still it is a well made movie. 'The Ring' and 'The Sixth Sense' were the movies which played a huge part in making me a fan of the horror genre. The first film and The Sixth Sense gave me sleepless nights for weeks because of the way they were brilliantly executed and it may also have something to do with my being a teen when The Ring films released. Hideo Nakata took over this film from Gore Verbinski and that is where the treatment of the film changed quite a bit. He goes for a lot more gore and cgi effects than an actual story, it lost its spark there.
Six months after the incidents involving the lethal videotape, Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) wants to move away from the city into a quiet town with her son, Samara Morgan (Daveigh Chase) after the horrible deaths of her boyfriend and niece, and start over again. She had freed Samara from her earthly prison and now she is free to terrorize anyway she wants and doesn't have the restrictions that the previous film rules set. Now, Samara wants Aidan Keller's (David Dorfman) body so she could live normally again. She does all she can to get hold of his body without alerting Rachel. She even comes out of televisions to get hold of her victims. She is more evil than ever and it is upto Rachel to put an to all this mayhem.
This movie is overloaded with cgi effects in scenes that is not exactly needed. Samara possesses hundreds of deers and stags in a forest. What's up with that? She couldn't control an animal in the last film. If so, she could have controlled the horses. But the horses killed themselves due to her evilness. And the water is replaced by a black emf emission, I think. That was more cheesy than scary because of so many effects. David Dorfman is not so creepy as Aidan in this film. In the first film, I was convinced he was the ghost. He creeped me out in the first one. This time around he gave an alright performance and didn't scare me at all, as he seemed more humane in this. My sympathetic view on Samara's plight was overcome with disgust in this one. Why does she want only Aidan? She could have any kid she wanted. And shouldn't she be thankful to Rachel for releasing her from her hellhole and go to heaven or something? I was very sad that Naomi Watts accepted this film, her story is not so good in this film. Still she gave a good performance. I still give this film a 7 rating because it creeped me out the first two times I saw it.
