Review: The Ring Two

While not as good as the original, The Ring Two still had some good scenes that made even the “Scary Movies Don’t Scare Me” BF jump a couple of times.

I can’t really say much about the movie without giving away the plot, but the creepy boy (Aidan) from the original is back and so is his mom (Rachel) and Samara. There seemed to be a few plot holes here and there, but for primarily being a scary movie, I’m not complaining.

I haven’t seen the Japanese version of this yet (it’s still sitting around because I’m too scared to watch it alone) but the American version I saw tonight was a bit too “Americanized” for me if that makes any sense. The first scene of the movie made me dread it was going to be a teeny-bopper-slasher flick, but I’m glad it wasn’t. The whole, “I’m not your fucking mother!” scene was a bit too “please the audience” for me.

    I saw both of the originals, and I ended up liking the actors in the Japanese one better, besides the point that are no blondes. But I really liked the original Ring 2, and I haven’t seen the Americanized version yet. I also just watched the first and second Ju-on! I think that Amercanized versions make it scary in a visual way, while the Japanese ones create mystery and fear without even showing anything scary, just implying!
