After watching the first Ring movie, I unplugged my television and made sure it stayed that way as I crawled half asleep, half spooked out of my brain into my bed. When I rented this one, I wasn't so much spooked, but creeped by the weirdness the series takes on.
Much a direct sequel to the original, the survivors of the first movie take more of a step back, making room for new characters. As the Scream series suggested, the deaths are more elaborate and there are more of them. Don't let this spoil the movie, the flow of things more or less follows that of the first, unravelling a more complex plot that the first movie barely begins to look at. We delve into Sadako's life, afterlife and the effects the phantom video tape has on it's viewers. This is not for the weaker among us, you may be able to watch anything Hollywood churns out, but this is a whole new kettle of fish.
Just remember to unplug the TV and VCR before going to bed.
