Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
The Ring Two
The dead don't sleep.
A terrifying legacy haunts a single mother in this sequel to the frightening box-office hit The Ring. Hoping to leave their terrifying experiences in Seattle behind them, Rachel Keller and her son, Aidan, move to the small town of Astoria, OR, where Rachel takes a job writing for the local newspaper. When Rachel learns of an unexplained murder, which occurred after a teenager watched a strange videotape with his girlfriend, she suspects her past is following her and she begins looking into the case. Rachel believes that the otherworldly Samara has come back; however, as she tries to convince others of the young girl's powers, her own son falls ill and is hospitalized, and Rachel's stories fail to convince either Dr. Emma Temple, who suspects Rachel is guilty of child abuse, or David Rourke, one of Rachel's colleagues who fears for Aidan's safety.

This film is shit. Total lack of any subtlety, horrible dialogue and piss poor CGI. It just went on for an eternity seemingly; after 30 mins I was completely sick of it and just waited and waited for it to end.
Don't watch it.
Basically, if you're dead just get over it.
the abandonment of technology makes sense here but without the tape there's no thread to pull on, no pattern, no ring. what's left is just a standard ghost possession movie, although admirably a bafflingly goofy, nonsensical one. even though this features the same cast and follows the storyline from THE RING, this feels exactly like one of those fake knockoff Italian sequels, probably because of and not despite Nakata's presence (this cribs heavily from DARK WATER; his waterlogged haunted house tricks feel totally played out and formally he's no match for Verbinski). which is not to say i wouldn't be totally down for Umberto Lenzi's GHOST TAPE.
This was meant to be a comedy, right?
It's almost the same story of the first film . The only thing that changes is the man that helps her
Not as good as part one, but still a good horror movie which spreads a creepy atmosphere.

"Whenever you feel alone, you just call my name. I'll follow the sound of your voice."
Well how's this for a mess? Eschewing the anchoring concept that made the first movie (and the Japanese original) such a technophobe's delight, this incoherent sequel meanders from one limp CG-augmented set-piece to the next. Naomi Watts struggles to hold it together. Hideo Nakata's attachment as director may have brought her back, but ultimately this is a flailing and derivative hodgepodge of cliches. Ever decreasing circles indeed.
It was a lot worse than I remembered!
Zinu, ka daudziem Aplis nešķiet šausminošs, taču varu atklāti pateikt-mazas, spokainas meitenītes, kuras lien ārā no televizoriem laikam varētu būt mans Ahileja papēdis. Manī filma spēja pietiekamā apmērā iedvest bailes. Starp citu, braucu uz Hiču, bet pēdējā brīdī nomainīju domas uz Ring 2 :)
The first "Ring" film was okay, and this one is slightly less okay, but it still manages to entertain, even if it makes little sense. Director Hideo Nakata, who made the far superior Japanese original, establishes a creepy atmosphere. However, the logic of the first film has been discarded. The evil Samara (Kelly Stables) no longer relies on the cursed videotape to summon her; she can appear on television screens at will and it's even possible for newspaper reporter Rachel (Naomi Watts) to jump through the screen herself, into Samara's world. Samara also possesses the bodies of others, appears in mirrors, and causes an attack by rampaging stags.
If you find yourself watching, you may enjoy it if you require little in the way of narrative logic. But there is no reason to seek it out.
Honestly, Ebert nailed this one: "The charm of 'The Ring Two,' while limited, is real enough; it is based on the film's ability to make absolutely no sense, while nevertheless generating a real enough feeling of tension a good deal of the time. It is like an exercise in cinema mechanics: Images, music, photography and mood conspire to create a sense of danger, even though at any given moment we cannot possibly explain the rules under which that danger might manifest itself."
Exactly what I felt coming out. That it's slightly better than the first despite being nonsensical and all but ditching the central gimmick. I'd say it's thanks to Nakata's campy but effective shot choices and the thematic integrity. While ditching the videotape stuff, Two manages to be a better elucidation of the dangers of virtuality or losing track of real reality than the first film ever was.
Sissy Spacek cameo is nice. Cocktease climax.
