| Alternate sequel for Ringu fans...not recommended for others.
This movie has an excellent start... It continues where Ringu ended. The investigation of how Dr. Takayama died begin at the medical institute by his former students. However, somewhere along the road, you realize that Sadako won't show up and scare the living crap out of you...Instead there's a scene where she's naked and horny and kiss the neck of the guy who has just seen the videotape. The explanation to this unexpected event comes later, but still, there is no really scary scenes in this movie, and Sadako looks more frightened than frightening.

However, the story isn't necessarily bad...It's just the way it's being presented. Hideo Nakata was needed for this movie...or at least Ringu needed to have been released earlier than Rasen, then maybe... this movie had looked different.
