    Answer: Yes.

    Unfortunately, they have decided not to use the story contained in the Japanese "Ring 2", and are instead using an entirely new story. Which is a pity, because I really liked the Japanese sequel, and even found it to be scarier than the first film.

    That reminds me - the prequel "Ring 0" has just come out here. I might get that out tonight.

    Ring 0 is pretty good, not as good as Ring 1 & 2. Did you know that there is another version of the Ring that was filmed at the same time as the Japanese version called Spiral.

    SPOILERS AHOY!






    I think they should highlight another family. It's a decade later, society's falling as the Ring virus spreads. But this kid's like the chosen one, a figure of God. Since Samara's demon spawn, the movie should highlight an epic fight between these two equal but opposite forces. Just my two cents.

    I like your plot, but not for a Ring sequel. I'd do it as a separate story. If there is a Ring sequel, I'd like it to feature the same low-key creepiness that made the original so scary to me.

    And no scientification of the supernatural elements, like I hear they've done with the book series in Japan [​IMG]

    Hmm..I wonder what kind of tagline hollywood will paste on the end of a ring sequel?

    Ring 2: Call waiting

    Ring 2: The DVD edition. (The movie is even more powerful because you can't copy it! [​IMG])

    Ring 2: Now with more teenagers and top-40 hits!

    Ring 2: Reloaded

    Ring 2: Samara and the Chamber of Secrets

    I like Ring 2: Call Waiting.

    Maybe Samara could start using the internet to hack into people's computers?

    Imagine Samara sending millions of spam email to everyone. "S3/3N D/YS!!!!!1!" could be the subject header.

    And she can deface CNN.com!

    Naturally only those with spam filters and high-tech internet firewalls will survive, and participate in the movie's climactic showdown in Everquest...

    SlayerDude: Help! There's this chick who is trying to hack into my account and insisting that I have seven days, whatever the hell that means!
    +Admin: You are not allowed to have a hacked account. I must ban your account.
    SlayerDude: Wait that's crazy!
    +Admin: You may appeal in seven days time. Thank you for supporting Sony Online Entertainment. Goodbye.

    Ring 2 and Ring 0 are Korean films based from their remake

    The ring 2 and ring 0 are both Japanese films. Out of all of them I personally like the Ring 0. I have no idea why!!
    The true sequal to the ring is Rasen. But that movie sucks big time. The only Title that was made by Koreans was the Ring Virus. But that was a joint venture between Korean and japanese producers.
