THE RING TWO [2005]

Hideo Nakata, director of Japan's 1998 Ringu adaptation, makes his American debut with the sequel to the 2002 adaptation.
Telling an original story of it's own, Rachel & Aidan have moved states to escape the memories of their run in with the creepsome Samara only to find she and her wiggins videotape have found a way to follow them.
Being a huge fan of the first film I wanted so very badly to love this one too but ended up hating it when it first came out and vowed to never watch it again until now.  My dislike for it has simmered down a bit but it still doesn't change the fact that it's a crap film.  It spends a good hour filled with nothing but nonsensical "spookiness" until an actual plotline begins mildly materializing and by then anything worthwhile is long gone.

2 bucks stop here out of 5
