Alternate Versions

There are two slightly different versions of the Region 1 widescreen unrated DVD. One has rougher sound and poorer video quality during the additional scenes, with a few unfinished effects (the viewfinder on Aiden's camera). Some of the music cues are different as well. It also has a different version of the "bobbing for apples" scene, in which Aiden has a vision of his own head underwater. The only apparent difference in packaging is that this version does NOT have the letters "FR" after the catalog number (which is, in both versions, 94433). See more »

Nice to see Aidan and Rachel but no longer scary
23 January 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Aidan (David Dorfman) and Rachel (Naomi Watts) have moved to a small town in Oregon. However the videotape seems to have followed them after Rachel finds another one of those strange deaths. Rachel takes the tape and burns it. Samara starts coming after Aidan, and Rachel must dig up the past to put it to rest.

The great thing about this sequel is that the actors came back to finish the story off. It's interesting to go back to the source story. However the franchise can't surprise the audience any more. It was a nice fresh idea in the first movie, but the sequel can't shock us anymore. It's a good wrap up. I hope they don't keep dragging this out like other franchises.
