The Ring Two is a 2005 horror film that serves as a sequel to the 2002 film, The Ring. Starring Naomi Watts, David Dorfman, and Sissy Spacek, the film is directed by Hideo Nakata. The Ring Two takes place six months after the events of the first film. Rachel Keller (Watts) and her son, Aidan (Dorfman), have moved to a small town in Oregon to start a new life. However, their peaceful existence is shattered when a local teen dies under mysterious circumstances, and Rachel learns that Samara, the vengeful spirit from the first film, is still seeking revenge.

Rachel must race against time to save Aidan from Samara's curse, which threatens to kill him in seven days. The film follows Rachel as she uncovers the dark secrets of Samara's past and tries to protect her son from the evil spirit.

The Ring Two delivers on the scares and tension that made the first film a hit. The film's cinematography is particularly effective in creating a creepy atmosphere, with dark, grainy shots that bring to life the sinister nature of Samara's curse. The film's score also adds to the overall unease, with pulsing electronic beats that heighten the tension.

Naomi Watts delivers a strong performance as Rachel, showing both vulnerability and strength as she battles Samara's curse. David Dorfman also gives a solid performance as Aidan, who is caught in the middle of his mother's fight against the supernatural.

Sissy Spacek appears in a supporting role as Evelyn, the mysterious owner of an animal shelter where Rachel and Aidan seek refuge. Spacek brings a quiet intensity to the role, hinting at a tragic past that adds depth to the character.

The Ring Two also explores the theme of motherhood, as Rachel struggles to protect her son from Samara's curse. The film delves into the emotional toll that the curse takes on Rachel, as she grapples with the possibility of losing her only child. This element adds a human touch to the film's supernatural plot, and makes the scares all the more effective.

Overall, The Ring Two is a strong sequel that builds upon the mythology of the first film while delivering its own scares and surprises. With strong performances and a chilling atmosphere, the film is a must-see for horror fans, particularly those who enjoyed the first film.

The Ring Two is a 2002 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4 and a MetaScore of 44.
