Review: Very good! I only wish this was the actual sequel to The Ring, not that crizzap called The Ring twO. Its main premise is very reminiscente of the main premise of Rasen - Samara's curse spreading all over the country. However, in Rings, it's different. Instead of Samara taking control over the curse spreading all by herself, here, there are rings of the Cult of Samara, which are spreading the tape around. This premise has been suggested by Suzuki Kji himself in the end of the Ring novel, where Asakawa Kazuyuki imagines the tape spreading all around Japan and possibly also out of its boundaries. And Rings made a good story out of this. Also, if you watch Rings before The Ring twO, you're going to find out that The Ring twO makes a lot more sense since if you watch Rings beforehand, you know what's happening in the beginning. So, in one word, it's: very good.
