The Ring 2 (2005)

The Ring 2 (2005)

Country:  USA

Director: Hideo Nakata

Main Stars: Naomi Watts, David Dorfman, Sissy Spacek, Elizabeth Perkins, Gary Cole, Simon Baker

Storyline:  6 months after the first film Samara Morgan has returned and so has the video

mv5bmty2odc2ntq2of5bml5banbnxkftztywnza4otu3__v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_Review (Spoils): Some high school couple dare each other to watch the film, the girl covers her eyes and Samara returns to kill the young man. Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts ) learns of the twisted death and she starts again on the hunt to stop the video and the terror of the ghost of Samara and to protect her son.

Again with the sequels but we all knew this one was going to happen as the Ringu series if large. We have the return of Rachel and once again her acting is well done for this film but it could not save the film from the lack of sense. This film is not even close to the first one and even the CGI effects in it could not bring it to justice. We have the return of the VHS tape, some deer in the forest that randomly attack a car, the ghost of Samara wanting her mommy (really?) and a whole lot of the same shit as the first film.

The storyline in this one is very weak…..

Rating: The first film (yes it was a remake) was actually not bad and I was looking forward to this one to follow suite but instead it became and dread of boredom and lack of story. The well, the TV and the nonsense of this film killed what could have been a great series.

Carrie (1976)

Carrie (1976)

Country:  USA

Director:  Brian De Palma

Main Stars: Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, John Travolta

Storyline:  A young girl after being emotional abused in a religious upbringing finds out that she has telekinesis powers. She wants pay back for all the bullying she has received.







Review (Spoils): This is one of the.. if not the best of the Stephen King novels made to film. We have young innocent Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) who has been isolated her whole life from society and the temptation that exists in life due to her mother’s (Piper Laurie) over religious upbringing. She soon learns from school and other students that she sticks out like a sore thumb and all she wants in life is to fit in.  She is tired of being the strange outsider. Through the movie she finds out she has telekinesis powers and she cuts loose when she loses her temper.

We have some classic scenes in this movie from the shower opening sequence, the battle with her mother and of course the prom night blood bucket. This movie screams classic when it comes to witch type movies and over religious believes.

Rating:  You cannot get any better for a Stephen King novel horror film than this. Bring out a bucket of pints for the bucket of blood, if you have not seen this do it now!
