After losing her boyfriend to the deadly virus - which took its grip in the first instalment of the RING series - journalist Mai Takano decides to conduct her own investigation into the powers of the lethal videotape. Along the way she witnesses the gruesome effects wrought upon those who have been exposed to it, until eventually her investigation leads her deeper into the dark world of Sadako.
Director Hideo Nakata's follow up to his own, highly acclaimed RING is an atmospheric and disturbing tale which combines elements of the supernatural and the technological to chilling effect. RING 2 is that rare thing, a sequel which succeeds in living up to the expectations of the original, and in some ways improving on it. Like its predecessor RING 2 has the power to fill the viewer with an all-pervasive sense of evil and dread, and should not be seen alone...
