Second helping of fantasy horror from the Pang brothers. Joey Cheng (Qi Shu) is in a fragile emotional state following her third consecutive relationship break-up. When her most recent married lover Sam (Jesdaporn Pholdee) starts avoiding her calls, Joey tries manic retail therapy to ease her pain - and then, in a cry for help, stages a half-hearted suicide bid. But her overdose triggers a series of unsettling phantom visions that increase in intensity when she discovers she's pregnant. When a mysterious female ghost starts following her every move, she realises to her horror that she is bearing the reincarnation of Sam's wife (Eugenia Yuan), who committed suicide over their affair...

A pregnant girl finds herself becoming increasingly spooked by events around her as her life spirals off into some weird shadow world where the dead are all waiting to grab the first oppurtunity to return.
As another reviewer put it this isn't really a sequel but rather a totally different story with pretty tenuous connections to the 1st.
However I have to admit I preferred this one, the story is tighter, the acting better, the story scarier and the production values are on a different planet from the 1st films.
I bought the hong kong edition & the picture is simply one of the finest transfers I have ever seen, not a hint of grain & if you have hi-def you're going to be astounded at the results. The sound is in the same league as the picture, creepy effects are subtle and clear with steering absolutely spot on.
If you have a decent home cinema then this will wring every last drop out of it, if you don't then enjoy this for its fine story & jumpy moments.
Also this film can be seen without having seen the first one as it features none of the characters from the first film and the ideas about death and the afterlife are slightly different. Whereas the first one dealt with the idea that the souls of victims of a traumatic death couldn't pass on to the spirit world until their problems are resolved, this one deals with a very chilling view on reincarnation.
A good horror film should stay with you after viewing and this one certrainly does. This film will probably change my view on childbirth forever more!
Also, this film is probably even more chilling if you are female. Watch and all will be revealed.
One (of many) things i love about asian films and their makers is the emotional involvement the audience feels. The Pang brothers and their films are no exception and they are extremly talented filmmakers who have a huge ability for portraying heartful setiment and sheer terror.
Word of warning, the Pang Brothers seem to enjoy showing medical procedures in great detail and this film features a scene that will make even the most hardened stomachs turn slightly.
But the Pang Bros don't quite catch lightning in a bottle for "Eye 2," which has some wonderful horror moments and unique twists, but has a rather predictable plot and a heroine who just seems to lack that certain something. It's an entertaining horror flick, but it's not all it could have been.
After a huge shopping spree, Joey Cheng (Qi Shu) ODs on pills because her married lover has dumped her. Fortunately she's found in time, and after a stay in the hospital, she heads back to China -- where she finds that she's also pregnant. But even creepier, she's starting to see people -- and creatures -- that aren't there.
But she can't just see them -- one of them saves her from a rapist, and she sees another trying to enter the body of a newborn baby. The increasingly unstable Joey doesn't know how to keep the the ghosts from attacking her baby, and she'll take drastic action to keep them from succeeding...
"Eye 2" is actually more fascinating as a study of Buddhist philosophy (only touched on in the first movie) than as a horror movie. In fact, the Pang boys drop a giant hint about the ghosts' intentions early on, so expect to know what's going on long before Joey ever figures it out -- lots of karma and atonement here.
Danny and Oxide Pang manage to conjure up a very creepy atmosphere at times, with traditional Korean spooks, a rape scare and a healthy dose of blood'n'gore, as well as the grey-faced dead who hang around pregnant women. Unfortunately the plot is a bit flat, without much mystery or suspense -- it's basically a series of scenes where Joey sees ghosts and acts crazily. Creepy, but rather plotless.
Nor is Joey a particularly compelling character -- she seems rather unstable to start with (with the repeated suicide attempts and adulterous affairs), although she's a bit more likable by the finale. And Qi Shu does a decent job with her, almost overacting but usually staying behind the line, even when she's screaming about ghosts under the table.
"The Eye 2" suffers from a slack middle section, but the beginning and ending (and some of the ghost scenes) are wonderful and quite creepy. Worth watching, though the plot is lacking.
The story revolves around a young pregnant woman who finds herself alone and emotionally fragile after breaking up with the father of her baby. After a failed suicide attempt Joey begins to see ghosts. These initially fleeting glimpses begin to become more intense as her pregnancy progresses leading to some genuinely creepy moments.
To be honest I don't really see this film as a sequal. Although it deals with a young woman who suddenly see ghosts it doesn't have the same atmosphere to it. The Pangs have themselves said they did not want to just repeat the original film and I for one think they did the right thing. Overall the film isn't as good as The Eye, but I feel that as a stand alone movie rather than a sequal it's pretty good.
